Aluminium-based metal matrix composites are widely used in the aerospace and automotive industries, but their manufacturability and mechanical properties are not well understood when these new materials are employed in additive manufacturing. This is an important consideration because, compared with traditional manufacturing technologies, additive manufacturing technologies such as selective laser melting (SLM) offer the ability to manufacture engineering parts with very complex geometries… CONTINUE READING
