Thermal imaging is an important tool for future developments in Laser Powder Deposition (LPD). Thermal imaging of the LPD process is typically used for the verification of mathematical models describing the process and/or dynamic melt pool control. The research discussed here shows how thermal imaging can be used to improve our understanding of the connection between deposition parameters, thermal gradients, and final part quality. Data gathered from melt pool and bulk-part thermal images were used to correlate deposition parameters to final part quality. The results presented here are for applications in internal barrel cladding and laser brazing.
