Abstract

© 2019 Author(s). There is a clear industrial pull to fabricate high value components using premium high temperature aerospace materials by additive manufacturing. Inconveniently, the same material properties which allow them to perform well in service render them difficult to process via powder bed fusion. Current build systems are charac-terised by high defect rates and erratic microstructure, leading to components with inferior mechanical properties. The work presents microstructural texture imaging of powder-bed fusion components by a non-contact laser ultrasonic method, Spatially Resolved Acoustic Spectroscopy (SRAS). In short, this work demonstrates the ability to SRAS to detect and characterise meso-scale crystalline texture features. Probing samples manufactured by powder bed fusion, in the common nickel based aerospace superalloy Inconel 718, it has been shown the the primary crystalline orientation of can be inferred from the measured velocity, with good agreement with Electron Backscatter Diffraction. The studied sample was found to have a microstructure formation that bore a heavy resemblance to the chosen scanning pattern, with clear influence from the geometry through varying scan vector length and island-boundary scan strategy. This work forms part of a progression towards deployment of a SRAS system as an in-situ inspection solution for PBF.
