Laser Additive Manufacturing Technology

Shown above (left) is a sample of Laser Additive Manufacturing technology. This part was produced by using a power bed system with a seven-beam fiber array laser source Ti-6AL-4V alloy powder and demonstrates the ability to process “walls” using different laser beam geometries and power settings.  The experiments were performed under a SBIR contract (January, 2017) with the Department of the Navy using a fiber array system similiar to what is pictured on the right.
