Selective laser melting of magnesium

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Magnesium-based materials find their use mainly in manufacturing light-weight constructions in motor-car, airspace industries, and biomedicine due to the low density. This paper provides an overview of introducing magnesium into SLM technology and describes searching experiments to prepare samples of magnesium powder МPF-4 (Russian State Standard 6001-79) conducted in the Laboratory of Yurga Institute of Technology. The study has determined appropriate parameters to synthesize a compact structure: laser output power 100 W, laser beam movement velocity 200 mm/s, scanning pitch 0.1 mm, modulation frequency of laser irradiation m = 2500 Hz, linear energy density Е=5 J/mm2, the process is to be carried out in argon shielding medium.
