Over the past years, the manufacturing industry has witnessed a great enhancement in the field of Additive Manufacturing that allows forming an inchoate market to produce custom-made products with low unit costs. At the same time, everyone may be a designer as well. However, the required equipment is only accessible for all the people. The Cloud Manufacturing aims to resolve this challenge by connecting the customers to the manufacturers. Therefore, this paper introduces a practical fabrication method for 3D printers which can bring flexibility and benefits to cloud manufacturing scheme. A model of this integration is provided and implemented on two types of 3D printers. Further, by printing sample specimens, the advantages of this approach such as using low memory size for operating each printer and the ability of changing the design during the fabrication process is described in details.


An advanced machining process simulator for industrial applications
Yeğin, Emre; Dölen, Melik; Koku, Ahmet Buğra; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2010)
Turning and milling are the main manufacturing techniques in industry. A great deal of time and money is spent for machining operations. Although most of the time, the tool path of a CNC machine tool is generated by a Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) software package, to be sure that the result of the machining operation will be as required, it is necessary to use a simulation software. There are various machining simulation software packages available in the market. However, they are not only expensive, ...
Simulator of an additive and subtractive type of hybrid manufacturing system
Dilberoğlu, Mecid Uğur; Yaman, Ulaş; Dölen, Melik (2019-06-24)
Additive Manufacturing (AM) facilitates the production of intricate objects despite its weakness in attainable part quality and fabrication speed compared to the conventional manufacturing methods. To alleviate the problems arising as a natural outcome of AM methods, hybrid technologies become viable options by employing concurrent manufacturing procedures, e.g. synergetic additive and subtractive manufacturing (SM) actions. Hybrid workstations have recently opened up new dimensions to 3D-printing industry,...
A Workflow and Cloud Based Service-Oriented Architecture for Distributed Manufacturing in Industry 4.0 Context
Kayabay, Kerem; Gökalp, Mert Onuralp; Eren, Pekin Erhan; Koçyiğit, Altan (2018-11-22)
In Industry 4.0, manufacturing organizations have to become more flexible and agile to stay competitive in the marketplace. Industry and academia focus on sharing globally distributed manufacturing resources and capabilities. This shift to collaborative environment calls for a service dominant logic in which reusable services model entire production processes. Accordingly, service-oriented architectures have been under spotlight by researchers to integrate distributed capabilities and resources of manufactu...
A novel hybrid method using fuzzy decision making and multi-objective programming for sustainable-reliable supplier selection in two-echelon supply chain design
Tirkolaee, Erfan Babaee; Mardani, Abbas; Dashtian, Zahra; Soltani, Mehdi; Weber, Gerhard Wilhelm (Elsevier BV, 2020-03-20)
Recently, large companies have shown a growing tendency to enhance the reliability and sustainability of their supply chains to increase customers' satisfaction in terms of on-time fulfillment of demands and to be compatible with environmental regulations. Therefore, finding the best approaches to achieve companies' goals is a crucial concern in supply chain management, and the majority of organizations prefer to cooperate with reliable and sustainable companies. In designing a supply chain, the supplier se...
A composite dislocation cell model to describe strain path change effects in BCC metals
Yalçınkaya, Tuncay; Geers, M.G.D. (IOP Publishing, 2009-11-16)
Sheet metal forming processes are within the core of many modern manufacturing technologies, as applied in, e.g., automotive and packaging industries. Initially flat sheet material is forced to transform plastically into a three-dimensional shape through complex loading modes. Deviation from a proportional strain path is associated with hardening or softening of the material due to the induced plastic anisotropy resulting from the prior deformation. The main cause of these transient anisotropic effects at m...
