Laser Welding and Additive Manufacturing

Superior productivity and speed, coupled with low heat input are resulting in laser welding processes replacing the more conventional welding methods. In addition, the laser technology has further enabled metal additive manufacturing processes for both powder bed based and metal deposition. This FLOW-3D webinar provides a comprehensive review of our modelling capabilities to simulate laser welding and additive manufacturing processes. We look at how process parameter optimization and relevant physical models play an important role in predicting porosity, surface finish and the subsequent microstructure evolution in welding and additive manufacturing processes.
