Abstract

The selective laser gluing process for rapid prototyping was proposed and investigated in this work. The main feature of the method is the premixed composition of metal powder and solid thermoplastic glue of low melting point. The scan of a laser beam over the free powder surface gives the local heating and melting of only the polymer component. The melting of thermoplastic glue particles leads to gluing of the nonmelted metal particles.
