Wire-based LMD for Repair and AM Applications
Is a coaxial wire feeding LMD head suited for repair and AM applications?
Challenge and Motivation
- ILT has developed a 3D-capable coaxial wire LMD processing head (prototype)
- Compared to powder additives, wire additives offer advantages such as: high material efficiency, reduced contamination of the deposited material and machine, fewer health & safety hazards
- Set-up of wire-based LMD
- Assessment of wire deposited layers (metallurgical evaluation)
- Evaluation of economical and technical aspects based on gathered data
