This paper analyzes the geometric stability and microstructure characteristics of metal additive manufacturing parts using plasma transferred arc with Metal Matrix Composites. The technology used to enhance the capabilities of a plasma system to create an additive manufacturing system is described. Geometric stability, microstructure porosity and cross-sectional hardness analysis of the additive manufacturing parts are discussed. This work confirms that the new capabilities of the system allow building a 3D printed part of nickel-base metal matrix with tungsten carbide particles for wear resistance. The results will lead to the development of large-scale additive manufacturing parts for industrial purposes.
