• Development of metal matrix composites by laser-assisted additive manufacturing technologies: a review

    2 monthes ago - By Springer

    Abstract
    Metal matrix composites generally possess superior properties than the monotonic matrix alloys, and thus, they have become excellent candidate materials in various applications. Also, the ability of property tailoring at an affordable cost is of particular importance to industries. Among the many manufacturing techniques for MMCs, laser-assisted additive manufacturing techniques have emerged and drawn increasing attention in the past decade. In the literature, a wealth of studies have been carried out on the synthesis of MMCs via laser-assisted AM techniques, as well as the...
