This presentation describes the combination of additive friction stir deposition (AFSD), additive preform measurement, and CNC machining. Deposition strategies are selected and described which are suited to AFSD followed by machining. Final geometry, microstructure, and mechanical properties are evaluated to confirm that the part meets the designer’s intent. Examples are provided for various geometries and materials.
- Upon completion, participant will be able to make a more information decision about the adoption of additive friction stir deposition.
- Upon completion, participant will be able to integrate additive friction stir deposition with machining.
