Remy completed his Undergraduate degree from Lycée Marcel Gambier & Lycée Louis Le Grand, Lisieux - Paris, France and Masters of Science from Ecole national supérieure des Mines de Nancy, Nancy, France & University of Alberta, Edmonton, Alberta. He joined us in August, 2019 and is currently working as a Research Assistant in our team.
My Research interests are Additive manufacturing computer vision and MRO (maintenance & repair Ops)
Automated In-situ repair of damaged industrial equipment:
Design and create a 5-axis hybrid system with integrated 3D data sensor for identification, extraction and repair of 3 dimensional areas. The system is used in an in-situ single step repair process including CNC machining and additive manufacturing. The objective was to help oil & gas manufacturers reduce their costs on key equipment maintenance and repair by providing them with a complete embedded solution for automated inspection and remanufacturing.
The solution included a software application, a 5-axis gantry system and a structured light 3D scanner. The damaged part is first scanned to recreate its digital twin. From the obtained point cloud, the damaged areas are identified and extracted. A repair strategy including pre-repair machining, metal 3D printing and subtractive finishing is then computed from the previously extracted areas. This repair strategy is eventually exported as G-code files for actual machining and 3D printing using the 5-axis gantry system.
The software solution is now available for purchase. Please see Elementiam.ca for more details.
Continuous interweaving toolpath generation for 3D printing of polymer-based composite materials
Design and implementation of a computer assisted manufacturing solution for 3D printing of continuous polymer based composite materials such as carbon fiber. The project includes a python-based sequence of algorithms capable of slicing a large range of 3D models for continuous interweaving path planning computation. The objective is to provide with an additive manufacturing method to produce composite equipment with similar end quality as traditionally manufactured parts.
