Processing IN718 by Low-Cost SLM Machine
Which material properties are achievable when LC-SLM system is used for processing IN718?
Challenge and Motivation
- Commercial SLM machines are very cost intensive.
- Fraunhofer ILT and FH Aachen develop a Low-Cost SLM machine (LC-SLM).
- LC-SLM system equipped with diode laser and axis system instead of fiber laser and scanner unit.
- Investigation of the influence of diode laser and axis system on achievable material properties for IN718.
