Schematic illustration of (a) scanning strategy and (b) mechanical test specimen extraction from LMD deposits.
Cross sections (a) perpendicular and (b) parallel to the build direction in the middle of Inconel 625 samples fabricated by LMD in lying orientation [see Fig. 1(b)].
Etched scanning electron micrographs in the upper part of Inconel 625 samples built by LMD in (a) standing and (b) lying orientations [see Fig. 1(b)].
Scanning electron micrograph in the upper part of Inconel 625 samples built by LMD in standing orientation [see Fig. 1(b)] showing the presence of fine precipitates.
X-ray diffraction spectrum of central part of tensile test specimen built by LMD of Inconel 625 in (a) lying (b) standing orientation [Fig. 1(b)]. For the latter, samples have been extracted at heights from 3 to 85 mm along the build direction.
Process parameters of fill tracks applied to produce test specimens.
Material strengths obtained after compressive loading of Inconel 625 samples.
Mechanical properties obtained by tensile testing of Inconel 625 samples loaded perpendicular (lying orientation) or parallel (standing orientation) to the build direction (see Fig. 1).
