Laser or electron beam based powder fusing technologies are interesting processes for structural repair, overhaul of engine components and direct part manufacture. The interesting aspects are low raw material consumption, net shape manufacturing, new dimensional freedom in processing and short lead times to the first part. Currently a variety of processes is being developed mostly by traditional iron based powder melting process developers taking an active part in the development of titanium alloy melting technologies for the medical and aerospace industries. In order to evaluate these technologies for Ti-Al6-V4 structural repair or direct component manufacturing the properties under static and dynamic loading where investigated in this study.
