Additive Manufacturing Powder Bed Fusion
Based on Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM), an energy source melts defined structures into a powder layer that solidifies immediately.
After finishing one layer a fresh powder layer is applied and selectively melted.
Laser or electron beam can serve as energy source.
For a laser beam, it is beneficial to work in a vacuum to improve metallurgical properties of the final structure.
Comparatively small workpieces with complex internal and external structures
