Hybrid manufacturing and hybrid multi-materials have emerged as a promising technological field for fabricating casting molds, tooling, and unique thermal management components.
Additionally, hybrid additive manufacturing became attractive as a repairing technique, providing opportunity significantly increase the lifetime of metal-based components.
This study investigated different aspects of hybrid manufacturing:
- Utilizing Selective Laser Melting (SLM) for fabrication geometrically complex cooling parts from maraging steel built on top of inexpensive tool steel as die basis;
- Electron Beam Melting (EBM) of hybrid components from different types of steel to provide a unique combination of cutting properties, corrosion resistance, and ductility;
- Combination of EBM and SLM technique for fabrication complex hybrid components, combining refractory and Fe-based alloys.
All presented experimental findings were obtained at Additive Manufacturing Center, Technion’s R&D Foundation.
