Advances in Metal Additive Manufacturing explains fundamental information as well as the latest research on technologies including powder bed fusion, direct energy deposition using high energy beams, and hybrid additive and subtractive methods. Metal additive manufacturing provides unrivalled design flexibility with the ability to produce parts from a wide variety of materials. This book introduces readers to the technology, provides everything needed to understand how the different stages work together, and inspires to think beyond traditional metal processing to capture new ideas in metal. The first chapter offers an introduction about metal additive manufacturing, processes, and properties and standards, which is followed by surveys of the most significant international advances in metal additive manufacturing. Throughout there is a focus on the effect of important process parameters on the microstructure, mechanical properties and wear behavior of the additively manufactured parts.

Key Features

  • Covers the entire process chain of metal additive manufacturing, from input data preparation to part certification
