Arc-wire or laser-wire additive manufacturing seems promising because it allows large parts to be produced with significant deposition rates (ten times higher than powder bed additive manufacturing), for a lower investment cost. These additive manufacturing techniques are also very interesting for the construction or the repair of parts. A versatile 3D printing device using a Wire Arc Additive Manufacturing (WAAM) station or laser device Wire Laser Additive Manufacturing (WLAM) for melting a filler wire is developed to repair and build large titanium parts. The final objectives of the study are to optimize the process parameters to control the dimensional stability, the metallurgical and mechanical properties of the produced parts. In this paper, an experimental study is carried out to determine the first order process parameter ranges (synergic law, laser power, wire feed speed, travel speed) appropriate for these two techniques, for repair or construction parts on Ti-6 Al-4V.
Key words: Ti-6Al-4V / Wire Arc Additive Manufacturing / Wire Laser Additive Manufacturing
