Repair and Manufacture of High Performance Products for Medicine and Aviation with Laser Technology

M. Balazic, M. Milfelner, J. Kopac


High performance products used for special purposes in medicine and aviation are often manufactured from advanced materials such as titanium and nickel based alloys. As the most promising and effective technology for such production and repair the Laser Rapid Prototyping technologies are being used and implemented into the practice. Special focus has been orientated into the Laser Net Shape (LENS) technology. This paper will review the State of the Art of the LENS laser technology and present application case studies where LENS is being applied to manufacture of modern medical implants such as bone fixation plate and jet engine turbine inconel blades
