Abstract

In the paper first results regarding the realisation of gradient and multi-material parts manufactured
by Laser Beam Melting in powder bed of metals and polymers are published. Gradient properties
of additively manufactured metal parts can be achieved by varying the composition of alloying
components in the powder and adapting process strategies. As an alternative to atomizing prealloyed materials, mixtures of different powders are investigated. For realizing multi-material-parts
from polymers, at first relevant material properties concerning compatibility have to be analysed.
Therefore the paper shows the main requirements for compatibility between different materials and
also first results regarding the compatibility of polymer powders and possible combinations for the
manufacturing of multi-material components by laser beam melting of polymers.
