3D Printing of Net Shape Geometries by Laser Metal Deposition

By Carl Hauser  Introduction An additive manufacturing method developed by TWI within the framework of an EU-funded project could drastically reduce component manufacturing times. TWI engineers have been using laser metal deposition (LMD) to produce net shape thin-walled engine casings, aiming to reduce the environmental impact of civil aerospace manufacturing. In LMD, a weld track […]
