This article presents results relating to the production of a WC-Co gear cutting tool via selective laser melting (SLM). The influence of powder grain geometry and chemical composition on SLM process outcomes are firstly investigated by producing and testing simple cylindrical specimens, from which optimal process parameters and scanning strategies are establish for both the component itself and supporting structures. These parameters are then utilised to produce a real cutting tool that is subsequently employed for internal automotive gear fabrication.

Abstract

This article presents results relating to the production of a WC-Co gear cutting tool via selective laser melting (SLM). The influence of powder grain geometry and chemical composition on SLM process outcomes are firstly investigated by producing and testing simple cylindrical specimens, from which optimal process parameters and scanning strategies are establish for both the component itself and supporting structures. These parameters are then utilised to produce a real cutting tool that is subsequently employed for internal automotive gear fabrication.
