In powder bed AM (additive manufacturing) processes, a build is produced

on top of a metallic build platform. The presence of foreign objects upon this

platform can induce different problems, from motor servo shutdown to a fire

hazard. Here we present an active thermography approach to detect such foreign

objects before their presence can harm the system. The approach is based on the

differential thermographic response of the build platform vs. common foreign

objects to irradiative heating.
