Two additive processing scenarios were considered covering manufacturing and repair applications. One scenario required evaluation of three processes for the addition of shaped blocks to a casing. The other involved infilling a shallow hemispherical indent with one of three polycrystalline alloys (alloy 718, waspaloy™ and RR1000) using different deposition strategies. Processinduced discontinuities were characterised and controlled using a design of experiments approach. As distinct from welding, process variables of overlap, Toolpath, bead shape,sequencing and incremental height were established as influential variables Toolpath in particular can give markedly different textures and grain alignment which would be expected to influence mechanical anisotropy. Fine pool processes seem less prone to cracking and more likely to yield fine microstructures.
