This work demonstrates QuesTek’s the Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME) approach and in-house hot cracking susceptibility metric (HCS) to provide a more mechanistic and quantitative predictability of hot cracking than conventional metrics. QuesTek Europe and its sister company QuesTek Innovations have worked on over 100 projects in metal additive manufacturing to combine performance with printability by improving upon legacy alloys or with novel designs.
