Design of experimental 3D printer for concrete
Kafka, Richard ; Hurník, Jakub (referee) ; Koutný, Daniel (advisor)
This bachelor thesis deals with a structural design of 3D printer for concrete used for printing building elements which cannot be made by traditional methods. Printer allows testing new building materials and their structure in a part of 3D printing. In the thesis, the research was conducted into existing 3D concrete printing methods and kinds of printers. Next follows description of main parts of printer and their types. In the second chapter is analysed knowledge described in the previous chapter and based of the findings is chosen the most appropriated solution. The design part of the thesis specifies three types of conceptual solutions which are compared with multiple aspects and one of them is selected. The following chapter contains a detailed design of the selected conceptual solution, where positioning systems, linear guides and drives chosen based on the forces and moments arising during printing. The result is a frame printer design using a portal system of three mutually perpendicular axes. Due to its size, the printer can be placed outdoors or in a production hall.

Zabloudil, Jan ; Malý, Martin (referee) ; Koutný, Daniel (advisor)
Author tries to obtain new information about the influence of different heat treatments on SLM fabricated AlSi7Mg0,6 alloy, its mechanical properties and residual stress. For this purpose were chosen parameters of heat treatment based on previous research of other authors. With the use of normalised tensile strength test specimens and special specimens for analysis of deformation caused by the residual stress were the influences studied. Author checked the influence of stress relieving annealing, parameters of precipitation hardening and artificial ageing on mechanical properties and residual stress in the material. Results can help fabrication of studied material to receive required properties and eliminate the deformation caused by the residual stress.
Design of controlled nozzle for high pressure RIM head
Sýkora, Petr ; Suchý, Jan (referee) ; Koutný, Daniel (advisor)
This bachelor thesis deals with the design of mixing nozzle regulation for high-pressure mixing machine for production of polyurethane products. The aim of this work is to design the construction of controlled mixing nozzle for mixing head Cannon while keeping interchangeability with the current nozzle. I solved the chosen goal by constructing a nozzle controlled with the same build dimensions by a stepper motor. Control is ensured by throttling the flow by turning the nozzle screw through the motor. We managed to create a functional prototype and create a table to convert the existing nozzle diameters to the rotation of the engine. The main benefit of this work is the creation of an automatically regulated nozzle required for fully automated machine operation.
Design of additively manufactured oil-water heat exchanger for formula student
Březina, Josef ; Dočekalová, Kateřina (referee) ; Koutný, Daniel (advisor)
Diploma thesis deals with a design and manufacture of oil cooler by technology Selective Laser Melting for Formula Student. The main goal of the design is to ensure optimal oil circuit cooling at a minimal mass. The design of manufactured oil cooler is based on a plate heat exchanger concept with optimized intakes by CFD simulations and heat exchange body with fins of thickness 0.17 mm. An analytical model was created. SLM process parameters were optimized for a thin walls printing, Subsequently, a fabrication of testing parts was finished for measuring pressure drops and performances of micro heat exchangers. Results were used for an accuracy improvement of the analytical model and for consequent optimization of heat exchange surface. Afterwards optimization was executed for inlets and outlets by using flow simulations. A prototype was built and verified on a test stand. Performance of the designed oil cooler is 4.5 kW for race mode, where temperature drop of oil circuit is 22 °C. The lightweight design weighs 320 g, which reduces more than 47 % of a current oil-air cooler weight. Furthermore, a centre of gravity is decreased by designed placement of the cooler.
Design of recoating system for processing of two metal powders using 3D Printing
Guráň, Radoslav ; Němeček, Stanislav (referee) ; Koutný, Daniel (advisor)
The thesis deals with the design, construction and testing of two different metal powder coating equipment, which is able to work with SLM 280HL metal 3D printer. Since the field of multimaterial metal printing by selective laser melting (SLM) has not been significantly investigated yet, an overview of existing patents and possible approaches to the solution has been developed. The device has been successfully designed and a series of tests was carried out defining the issue of applying an improved head that uses a nozzle and an eccentric vibration motor. Based on the experiments performed, the coating parameters of the multimaterial layer of FeAm and 316L materials were defined. A control system for the partial process automation was created for the proposed device. The device was implemented in a printer that demonstrated both the ability to apply a single multimaterial layer of at least 50 m thickness, and the ability to produce a 3D multimaterial component comprised of up to 200 layers and containing material change across all axes.
Thermal conductivity of Cu7.2Ni1.8Si1Cr copper alloy produced via SLM and ability of thin-wall structure fabrication
Mašek, Jakub ; Koutný, Daniel ; Popela, Robert
Selective Laser Melting (SLM) as part of the Additive manufacturing industry is a metal printing technology that is considered promising to address the thermal integrity defects of a Heat Switch – the space technology currently under development. However, no thermal conductivity data of SLMed copper alloy Cu7.2Ni1.8Si1Cr are freely available. Therefore, three parts were fabricated and tested in an experimental thermo-vacuum chamber to reveal the material thermal conductivity. The samples analogous to the Heat Switch components were: a disk with inner holes and two cylinders with thin-wall web of 0.325 mm and 1.625 mm. Based on the previous experience with the copper alloy, fabrication was successfully processed with up to 5 % dimensional accuracy according to CAD model. The thermal conductivity evaluation process was improved by the implementation of heat transfer by radiation and the calculated thermal conductivity of SLMed Cu7.2Ni1.8Si1Cr was 3.4 times lower than the value of bulk material AMPCOLOY 944 with a similar chemical composition.

Design of injection molding cooling insert for manufacturing by Selective Laser Melting
Tekel´, Richard Martin ; Vrána, Radek (referee) ; Koutný, Daniel (advisor)
This bachelor thesis focus on design of a cooling insert so the current mold cycle time will be reduced and it will be possible to manufacture the insert by SLM. Proposed modification includes 1 cooling line with non-circular cross section and disrupt empiric cooling line design recommendations. A research into differences of conventional and additive manufacturing of injection moulding inserts was conducted as well as into theoretical principles needed for a design of cooling lines and preview of similar solutions for the given task. After simulation of current state and obtaining a value of current cycle time, 3 different designs of cooling line were chosen and simulated in order to pick the most suitable one. This cooling design was afterwards modified to get conformal shape and lower distance from critical spot. The last part of thesis interpret the results from simulation of the final cooling line design and estimation of safety against fatigue failure.
Heat treatment of maraging steel processted by SLM
Valenta, Jakub ; Vaverka, Ondřej (referee) ; Koutný, Daniel (advisor)
The bachelor thesis deals with the study of the heat treatment of the maraging steel 1.2709 (DIN X3NiCoMoTi18-9-5). The first part of the work is survay of studies that focus on heat treatment of maraging steel made by forging or Selective laser melting technology. Based on that section, a heat treatment was designed by which the samples manufactured on ProX 300 from company 3D Systems and M2 Cusing from company Concept Laser were treated. The effect of heat treatment on the mechanical properties of the samples was subsequently tested by tensile testing and metallographic analysis. The test results of both sets of samples were compared with each other and with the results of other studies and the impact of the described heat treatment on the material was evaluated.
