Laser Metal Deposition (LMD) is a non-traditional manufacturing process used for production of intricate parts by successive addition of layers of material. However, obtaining processed parts with good surface finish always poses great challenges. In this study the effects of the processing parameter in LMD processes on the surface characteristics of Titanium Alloy (Ti-6Al- 4V) was investigated. The response function considered was Surface Roughness (Ra) and (Rmax), while the LMD input… Expand
