Additive manufacturing of multi-material structures

Multi-material additive manufacturing (AM) leverages AM’s tooling-free nature to provide specific compositions and properties in different areas of parts. This means throughout a single component, properties like hardness, corrosion resistance, can be defined in areas that require it the most. Our work focuses on laser-based directed energy deposition (DED) and powder bed fusion (PBF) to create metal-ceramic multi-material structures and coatings with unique properties.
