Wilhelm Meir has filed for patents to protect the following inventions. This listing includes patent applications that are pending as well as patents that have already been granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

  • Patent number: 9952236
    Abstract: Disclosed is a method for monitoring a generative fabrication process in which a component is formed in an installation space from a multiplicity of layers by using a three-dimensional data model and a following layer is fixed to a preceding layer by means of a high-energy beam. The method comprises detecting the component at least optically and detecting the installation space thermally during layer application. Also disclosed is a device for carrying out the method.

  • Patent number: 9095900
    Abstract: The invention relates to a generative production method for producing a component by selectively melting and/or sintering a powder several times consecutively by introducing an amount of heat by means of beam energy, such that the powder particles melt and/or sinter in layers, wherein the powder particles (1) are made of a first material (2) and the powder particles are surrounded by a second material (3) partially or over the entire surface thereof, wherein the second material has a lower melting point than the first material and/or lowers the melting point of the first material when mixed with the first material. The invention further relates to a corresponding powder and to a prototype produced from said powder.

  • Publication number: 20130287590
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a method for producing gas turbine components, in particular aircraft turbine components, preferably low-pressure turbine blades, from a powder which is sintered selectively in layers by locally limited introduction of radiant energy, wherein the sintering is carried out in a closed first housing (2), so that a defined atmosphere can be set, wherein the powder or at least a part of the powder is generated in the same first housing (2) or in a second housing connected to the first housing in a gas-tight manner. The invention further relates to a corresponding apparatus and to a gas turbine blade produced thereby.
