Abstract:

Optomec proposes to develop the capability to use the laser deposition process to provide a method to repair airfoils damaged by erosion, foreign object damage, and other causes. Previous data suggests that laser deposition can be a viable repair route for components damaged in this way. We will develop the process parameters to build up damaged areas, and will demonstrate the ability of laser deposition to make the repairs with the required shape, properties and economics. Accompanying processes such as finishing will be assessed. A cost model will be developed, and manufacturing plans established, such that a business case can be made to proceed to Phase II. The outcome will be an assessment of the process relative to traditional means, and an identification of methods to successfully develop and introduce the technology to the Navy.
