Additive Manufacturing Powder Bed Fusion

Additive Manufacturing Powder Bed Fusion - Principle / Researchgate
AM Principle of Powder Bed Fusion / Source: Researchgate

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
