Abstract

The Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) of Japan established Technology Research Association for Future Additive Manufacturing (TRAFAM) in order to develop AM technology in FY2014. The association’s mission is twofold; to develop metal Additive Manufacturing technology and to develop binder jetting-type machine for the rapid production of sand molds. The goal of TRAFAM project is the development of innovative metal AM systems that will meet the world’s highest standards and the development of AM technology for high value-added products for aerospace, medical, and transportation industries etc. In this paper, the latest development status of the project, especially the development status of the electron beam PBF type machines, the laser PBF type machine and the laser DED type machines, is introduced. In addition, the numerical simulation software for metal AM based on multi-scale and multi-physics model is introduced.
