Abstract: Selective Laser Melting (SLM) is an Additive Manufacturing (AM) technique in which a part is built up in a layer- by-layer manner by melting the top surface layer of a powder bed with a high intensity laser according to sliced 3D CAD data. In this work, mechanical properties like tensile strength, elongation, Young's modulus, impact toughness and hardness are investigated for SLM-produced AlSi10Mg parts, and compared to conventionally cast AlSi10Mg parts. It is shown that AlSi10Mg parts with mechanical properties comparable or even exceeding to those of conventionally cast AlSi10Mg can be produced by SLM.
