Symposium Pioneers in Additive Manufacturing
Presentation Title Laser Deposition of Metallic Powders
Author(s) Brian Welk, Peter Collins, Rajarshi Banerjee, Hamish L Fraser
On-Site Speaker (Planned) Hamish L Fraser
Abstract Scope My introduction to additive manufacturing was in 1979 when employed at UTRC involving characterization of "layerglazed" Ni-base superalloys. After years of other research, I returned to additive manufacturing by purchasing the first commercial machine offered by the Optomec Company. This machine has been returned for updating on a number of occasions. This presentation will describe the trails and tribulations associated with additive manufacturing, and solutions developed during the early days of effort. In particular, our development of a combinatorial method for rapidly assessing alloy systems using samples with graded compositions produced using elemental powder blends in more than one powder hopper will be described. Examples of the use of this “metallurgical playpen” will be presented, focusing on our research in titanium alloys for, on the one hand, structural applications, and on the other, low modulus titanium for bio-medical applications.
