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