In his recent article, Dr. Kanyilmaz and his colleagues looked into the ways to successfully connect metal 3D printed (LPBF) parts to the conventional steel. In particular, they tested fatigue performance of hybrid metal additive manufactured joints vs EN 1993-1-9 steel joints, measured the defects shape and orientation influence fatigue life of metal additive manufactured parts, and modeled the hybrid structural behavior of Laser Powder Bed Fusion-to-hot-rolled is modeled. These insights will provide understanding regarding the fatigue performance of hybrid metal 3D printed joints compared to conventional steel, opening new research directions on the integration of metal additive manufacturing components with traditional steel structures.
