Élaboration "in-situ" par mélanges de poudres de composites à matrice métallique au cours du processus de fabrication additive

Abstract : As a new manufacturing technology, Selective laser melting (SLM) has a large potential in the manufacturing of complex parts with ultrafine microstructure.Selective laser melting has many significant advantages over traditional manufacturing methods but still faces a low availability of powder materials. With SLM, the part is firstly designed via 3D computer-aided design (CAD)), then built layer-by-layer with a high energy computer-controlled laser beam The work done in this study was therefore aiming at developing a new way to obtain alloys and composites directly from elemental powder mixtures with a large composition flexibility.Experimentally the choice was made of the aluminum-silicon system with several silicon contents (12, 18, 50 wt. %).Adding a static magnetic field was also considered as an additional way to control the microstructure. When parts are manufactured by SLM, laser power and scanning speed are the main parameters determining the density, microstructure, phase composition and mechanical properties. A systematic analysis of the role of these parameter on the manufacturing of Al - Si alloys by SLM from mixtures of powders was therefore conducted. Al - Si alloys with a very fine microstructure were thus obtained for several composition ranges corresponding to practical applications (lightweight structures, high wear resistance alloys, electronic packaging material, ...). The properties of the materials obtained in this way, according to the performed characterizations, compares favorably with those obtained via the conventional production technologies.
