Event Information

Description:

Directed Energy Deposition (DED) is a diverse additive technology excelling in 3 areas of metal Additive Manufacturing: Form, Enhance, Repair. With the powder-fed laser process, DED can FORM complex high-value components in a single-step method, ENHANCE part properties with additional features or multi-materials, and REPAIR parts with defects to reduce scrap. Directed Energy Deposition (DED), also referred to as Laser Metal Deposition (LMD) or Direct Metal Deposition (DMD), is an innovative Additive Manufacturing process which utilizes a focused laser to create metallic parts to near-net shape without the need for a bed of powder. The FormAlloy DED process deposits metal with a coaxially aligned laser/powder nozzle enabling complex geometries without the need for support structures, reducing machining time and nearly eliminating material waste. 3D printing parts with the LMD process can provide design features that can’t be achieved with conventional manufacturing methods, such as internal cooling channels and gradient material or multi-metal parts. The technology is utilized in Aerospace, Energy, Automotive and Consumer products.
