Laser Assist Powder Jet Deposition
Amorphous NiP plate is used as a mold of precision optical parts owing to the superior machinability. In the amorphous NiP plate, some pores, whose diameter is about 100m, are generated occasionally. At present, the amorphous NiP plates with pore are rejected. However, because size of the mold becomes large in recent years, the possibility of pores becomes high. In addition, the cost of the amorphous NiP plate also becomes high. Therefore, reparation method of the pore in the amorphous NiP plate should be developed. In this paper, laser assist powder jet deposition is proposed as a reparation method of the amorphous NiP plate. And fundamental experiments are carried out.
