Title: Rationalization of solidification mechanism of Nd–Fe–B magnets during laser directed-energy deposition [Rationalization of solidification mechanism of neodymium-iron-boron magnets obtained after laser directed-energy deposition process]

Abstract

Here, near-net fabrication techniques are highly beneficial to minimize rare earth metal usage to fabricate dense fully functional magnets. In this study, feasibility of using the directed-energy deposition technique for fabrication of magnets is evaluated. The results show that despite the ability to fabricate highly reactive materials in the laser deposition process, the magnetic coercivity and remanence of the hard magnets is significantly reduced. X-ray powder diffraction in conjunction with electron microscopy showed that the material experienced a primary Nd 2Fe 17B x solidification. Consequently, the absence of the hard magnetic phase resulted in deterioration of the build properties.
