Capability Details

  • Manufacturer: Penn State ARL
  • System Type: Directed Energy Deposition System
  • Description: Utilizing 3rd-generation AeroMet high-deposition capabilities, our first in-house built DED system is capable of larger build volumes. This High-Power High-Deposition (HPHD) system utilizes a laser with power levels up to 12 kW in a customizable build volume.

    Rectilinear builds can reach 100cm x 30cm x 45 cm and cylindrical builds can reach 60cm in diameter and 30 cm high. A custom cladding head with water-cooled optics and an inert gas enclosure make this a truly powerful system.
