Since 1992 Directed Energy Deposition has contributed to various areas of study and currently there are 6 manufacturers of systems that perform DED. The use of the technology has led to many repair strategies and component manufacturing applications. This Practice will be used as a guide for system set-up, machine operation, documentation, work practices, operator training and system monitoring.
Increased use of these technologies in government industries e.g. flight critical applications is driving the need for standardization.
