WEBINAR: How 3D Metal Printing Saves Time and Lowers Costs: DED for Repair of Industrial Components
March 7, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Directed energy deposition (DED), also called laser metal deposition (LMD) or laser engineered net shaping (LENS), is a 3D metal printing process that creates a metallurgically bonded, fully dense part that typically requires little to no post-processing. It is one of the fastest metal AM processes available today.
DED has emerged as a dominant metal AM process used in a wide range of industries for applications such as new builds, existing part modification, repair, remanufacturing of worn parts, and enhancement of part material properties.
This webinar will focus on:
- Basics of the DED process.
- Some unique capabilities of the process that separate it from traditional manufacturing methods or other AM processes.
- A review of some specific examples where DED was used for the repair of parts from several different industries.
Speakers: Jeffrey L. Crandall, Additive Manufacturing Research & Applications Senior Engineer, Connecticut Center for Advanced Technology | Tom Cobbs, LENS Product Manager, Optomec | Lucas B. Brewer, LENS Applications / Customer Support / QA Manager, Optomec
