[according to the Navy technology station, October 3, 2018] the U.S. Navy has awarded Lockheed Martin a new contract, It carries out relevant research and customizes multi axis machines that use laser beam to store materials and print metal parts. Because sensors and instruments are sensitive to temperature, humidity, vibration, power supply voltage and electromagnetic field

In cooperation with the U.S. Naval Research Office, Lockheed Martin is exploring the possibility of using artificial intelligence (AI) to train robots to independently supervise and optimize the additive manufacturing of complex parts

according to this two-year contract worth 5.8 million US dollars, the team led by the advanced technology center of Lockheed Martin company will be responsible for developing new software models and modifying the sensors so that the multi axis robot can 3D print the improved parts

Zach Loftus, an employee of additive manufacturing department of Lockheed Martin company, said: "When you begin to trust robot systems and use them to make high-quality parts, it opens a new door to who and where to make available parts.... consider the maintenance process and how maintenance personnel print replacement parts at sea, or how machinists print replacement parts of trucks in the depths of the desert. This will bring 3D printing to the next important stage of development."

researchers applied machine learning technology to additive manufacturing to allow machines to decide how to optimize the printing structure based on previously validated analysis results. The integration of the verified analysis results with the 3D printing robot system will be the key work under the current contract

Brian Griffith, project manager of Lockheed Martin, said: "We will study the way in which robots can observe, learn and make decisions autonomously, so as to manufacture parts that can achieve automatic average cooling of samples, better constant temperature and more consistent; with the gradual popularity of 3D printing parts, this is crucial. Robots should independently monitor and adjust in the printing process to ensure that another important reference factor in the production of household appliances - the safety of users' use and the material properties meet the requirements Parts. " (the China shipbuilding industry comprehensive technical and Economic Review Committee 1 unanimously approved the review of the standard, and the Institute is valuable)
