Abstract

Additive processes like Laser Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-LB) result in a distinctive microstructure characterized by metastability, supersaturation, and finesse. Post-process heat treatments modify microstructural features and tune mechanical behavior. However, the exposition at high temperatures can induce changes in the microstructure. Therefore, the present work focuses on the analyses of the tensile response at room and high (200 degrees C) temperature of the A357 (AlSi7Mg0.6) alloy processed by PBF-LB and subjected to tailored T5 (direct aging) and T6R (rapid solution treatment, quenching, and aging) treatments. Along with the effect of microstructural features in the as-built T5 and T6R alloy, the role of typical process-related defects is also considered. In this view, the structural integrity of the alloy is evaluated by a deep analysis of the work-hardening behavior, and quality indexes have been compared. Results show that T5 increases tensile strength at room temperature without compromising ductility. T6R homogenizes the microstructure and enhances the structural integrity by reducing the detrimental effect of defects, resulting in the best trade-off between strength and ductility. At 200 degrees C, tensile properties are comparable, but if resilience and toughness moduli are considered, as-built and T5 alloys show the best overall mechanical performance.
