FIAMME: Finishing processes for additive manufactured metal components

The FIAMME project consisted in developing a surface finishing process that could be effective on additively manufactured (AM) components with complex geometries. AM parts can reach average roughness (Ra) values up to 100 µm, which strongly affects the possible application of the component. The team focused on the surface finishing of internal mini-channels of an oscillating heat pipe (OHP) produced through powder bed fusion techniques. The optimal roughness of the internal channels of the component was investigated thanks to data found in literature and a target value was identified. A final testing sample was designed to test the developed surface finishing procedure on more complex parts with AM-friendly features.
