Abstract

This paper presents the elaboration of the method, the laboratory equipment and the technology (developed in the department) of Selective Laser Sintering for preparation specimens from a Fe-Ni-Cu (-P) powder mixture. During the investigation we focused on the influence of the scanning speed upon the mechanical and structural properties of specimens. The laser-sintered probes were investigated by light microscopy, compression test and laser topography. The optimum scanning speed was established for 150 W laser power, 0.1 mm scanning distance and 0.1 mm layer thickness.
