Laser Directed Energy Deposition Additive Manufacturing Process (L-DED)
This specification establishes process controls for the repeatable production of preforms/parts using the laser directed energy deposition (L-DED-) process for additive manufacturing. Preforms are intended to be used to manufacture aerospace parts, but usage is not limited to such applications. Feedstock may be either wire (for L-DED-Wire) or powder (for L-DED-Powder).
This is a revision to the specification for wire fed laser directed energy deposition additive manufacturing process to incorporate requirements for powder feedstock used in powder fed laser directed energy deposition additive manufacturing process in addition to wire feedstock.
