Metal Additive Manufacturing and the Need for Reliable Thermophysical Property Data

Additive Manufacturing (AM) encompasses a variety of technologies suitable for producing components from liquid, solid or powder feedstocks. Selective Laser Melting (SLM), a powder-bed fusion process, has become a commonly used AM process for rapid prototyping and component manufacturing using metals, alloys and, to a lesser extent, ceramics. Learn more about SLM, suitable materials and how to optimize input parameters for improved product quality using Thermal Analysis.
