Metal powder bed fusion with lasers (LB-PBF) is now used in safety and performance critical applications in aviation, space, medical and other industries. Producing parts via LB-PBF requires a fixed process with predictable outcomes. Calibration of the LB-PBF systems is a requirement to enable a qualified process in order to meet all specifications and requirements. This panel discussion will feature two industry titans who are producing critical parts with the MetalFAB1 system and their experience with calibration and qualification
