An investigation of Areal Topography Parameters using Multi-Scale Analysis on Powder Bed Fused Metal Surfaces.

Description goes here… The resulting metal surfaces fabricated using Laser Powder Bed Fusion (LPBF), are shown to be influenced by laser scanning path and layer-to-layer processing schemes, as well as energy density settings. Areal surface topography investigations are done on as-built, nickel alloy 625, by obtaining areal height maps using focus variation microscopy to reveal the highly irregular nature of surfaces obtained through Laser Powder Bed Fusion (LPBF).
