Study on Effect of Laser Peening on Inconel 718 produced by DMLS technique 2019-28-0146

In Additive manufacturing, Direct Metal Laser Sintering is a rapid manufacturing technique used for manufacturing of functional components. Finely pulverized metal is melted using a high-energy fibre laser, by Island principle strategy produces mechanically and thermally stable metallic components with reduced thermal gradients, stresses & at high precision. Inconel is an austenitic chromium nickel based super alloy often used in the applications which require high strength & temperature resistant. It can retain its properties at high temperature, e.g. Engine components in aerospace, exhaust system in automobile applications etc. Here we attempts to analyze the effect of laser shock peening on DMLS Inconel 718 sample. Microstructure shows elliptical shaped structure and formation of new grain boundaries. Surface roughness of the material has been increased due to effect of laser shock pulse & ablative nature. 13 % Increase in macro hardness on the surface. Depth wise micro hardness was investigated, found to be 17% increase on the sub layer of the material due to the effect of hardened matrix formed by precipitation hardening and grain size refinement attributed by laser shock peening. SEM analysis shows larger grains are being refined into smaller grains. The residual stress analysis was carried out using sin2 Ψ method of X-ray Diffraction. The results indicate compressive residual stress values have increased.
