Description

Laser powder bed fusion of metals is a technology that makes use of a laser beam to selectively melt metal powder layer-by-layer in order to fabricate complex geometries in high performance materials. The technology is currently transforming aerospace and biomedical manufacturing and its adoption is widening into other industries as well, including automotive, energy, and traditional manufacturing. With an increase in design freedom brought to bear by additive manufacturing, new opportunities are emerging for designs not possible previously and in material systems that now provide sufficient performance to be qualified in end-use mission-critical applications. After decades of research and development, laser powder bed fusion is now enabling a new era of digitally driven manufacturing.

Fundamentals of Laser Powder Bed Fusion of Metals will provide the fundamental principles in a broad range of topics relating to metal laser powder bed fusion. The target audience includes new users, focusing on graduate and undergraduate students; however, this book can also serve as a reference for experienced users as well, including senior researchers and engineers in industry. The current best practices are discussed in detail, as well as the limitations, challenges, and potential research and commercial opportunities moving forward.

Key Features

  • Presents laser powder bed fusion fundamentals, as well as their inherent challenges
  • Provides an up-to-date summary of this advancing technology and its potential
  • Provides a comprehensive textbook for universities, as well as a reference for industry
  • Acts as quick-reference guide

Readership

Academia – post graduate students in engineering mainly, also graduate courses in some cases and also experienced researchers; industry – manufacturing engineers, mechanical and industrial engineers using additive manufacturing. Technology managers and directors of companies interested in additive manufacturing's current capabilities.
