This book introduces the emerging areas of laser-based manufacturing such as additive manufacturing (AM) of metal matrix composites (MMCs), joining of hard-to-weld superalloys, damage-free machining of fiber-reinforced composites, surface properties enhancement using cladding techniques, and modeling and simulation of laser beam manufacturing techniques. Laser Applications in Manufacturing provides a quick guide for researchers and academicians to recent advancements in the development of powder-based MMCs manufactured using AM technology.

This book:

- Shows recent developments in functionally graded sheets or laminates and fabrication of fiber-reinforced composite using sheet lamination printing
- Lists recent developments in the joining of dissimilar materials in diverse applications such as hybrid structures and lightweight components for increased performance and functionality
- Includes many recent developments in machining carbon fiber, glass fiber, and natural fiber composite laminates for investigations of delamination and surface quality characteristics
- Showcases different aspects of surface alloying of miniature components, hard and soft composite coating for various applications

Laser Applications in Manufacturing is recommended for researchers working on fabrication of numerous new and novel materials. The book serves as a resource for scientists and engineers working in laser-based manufacturing techniques who want to learn about the most up-to-date research.
