This technology is a direct metal deposit with friction a friction stir process that results in a finished aggregated piece with comparable full structural quality to a wholly forged piece. This means that a broken part may be repaired with excellent bonding and strength or a piece may be constructed using rapid prototyping to result in a fully formed piece with completely bonded layers. The inventors showed a Ti-6Al-4V direct metal deposition layer could be formed with forged like characteristics. Potential Areas of Applications: * Metal part repair * Metal part fabrication * Metal part design Patent Status: US Utility Patent Application No. 12/787,075 Inventor(s): Joseph Newkirk; Frank Liou; Romy Francis Contact Info: Keith Strassner, firstname.lastname@example.org; 573-341-6725 Eric Anderson, email@example.com; 573-341-4551 Vera Anderson, firstname.lastname@example.org; 573-341-7263
