This book is a comprehensive guide encompassing the latest advancements in additive manufacturing techniques for metallic materials, and it features a notable chapter contribution from Dr. Agustin Diaz of REM Surface Engineering, ‚Surface Post-Treatment of Additively Manufactured Components.‘

Dr. Agustin Diaz, a distinguished figure in the field of materials engineering and surface technologies, has made a significant contribution to this groundbreaking publication. His expertise and insights in the domain of additive manufacturing have enriched the content, offering readers valuable perspectives on cutting-edge techniques and applications within the field.

Dr. Diaz shared, „I am delighted to lead the writing and content development of this book chapter titled „Surface Post-Treatment of Additively Manufactured Components.“ This chapter is part of the upcoming book titled „Additive Manufacturing of High-Performance Metallic Materials,“ which explores the latest advancements in Additive Manufacturing (AM), focusing on high-performance materials. The book delves into two prominent AM methods: Powder Bed Fusion (PBF) and Directed Energy Deposition (DED). I had the privilege of collaborating with esteemed experts in surface texture and its impact on the mechanical properties of AM components. I extend my heartfelt gratitude to Justin Michaud, Tanya Mikulas, Joshua Boykin, Nima Shamsaei, Shuai Shao, Seungjong (John) Lee, Jonathan Pegues, Timothy Hall, Jamie Stull, Timothy S. Duffy, Alex J. Mirabal, and Paul Gradl for their valuable contributions. These experts hail from various sectors, including NASA, National Labs, the private sector, and academia, and their insights have enriched this chapter with unbiased and rigorous scientific findings. Our journey led us through the diverse landscapes of scientific research, and we have endeavored to provide readers with insightful perspectives on surface finishing in the context of Design for AM. I hope this chapter will serve as a practical tool for those involved in Additive Manufacturing, offering valuable insights into the crucial aspect of surface treatment.“
