Robot assisted additive manufacturing: A review

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The additive manufacturing and the robotic applications are tremendously increasing in the manufacturing field. This review paper discusses the concept of robotic-assisted additive manufacturing. The leading additive manufacturing methods that can be used with a robotic system are presented and discussed in detail. The information flow required to produce an object from a CAD model through a robotic-assisted system, different from the traditional information flow in a conventional additive manufacturing approach is also detailed. Examples of the use of robotic-assisted additive manufacturing systems are presented.
