Laser metal deposition (LMD)/directed energy deposition (DED) is revolutionizing how the aerospace industry designs and builds high-value components across the manufacturing spectrum from prototyping to production. Today's components are often fabricated using traditional manufacturing methods, such as forgings with significant post processing. Laser-based additive manufacturing is an alternative, single-step method for producing complex, multi-material, dense or porous, near net-shape parts that can outperform their traditionally manufactured equivalents with enhanced properties. This session will cover:
