Advancements in the design, optimization and manufacture of turbine engine hot-section components during the past few decades have contributed enormously to the improvement in power-ratings and efficiency levels of gas turbine engines. Nickel-base superalloys are extensively used to produce the hot-section components as this class of alloys offer improved creep strength and higher fatigue resistance compared to other alloys due to the presence of precipitate-strengthening γ' phases i.e. Ni3[Ti, Al, Ta etc.] in the normally face centered cubic (FCC) structure of the solidified nickel. Although this second phase is the main reason for the improvement in properties, it also results in increased processing difficulty as these alloys are prone to crack formation. In this work, we demonstrate powder-bed additive manufacturing of René 142 onto René 125 substrates through scanning laser epitaxy (SLE). René 142 is a high strength, nickel-base directionally solidified (DS) alloy that has high rupture strength, excellent resistance to grain boundary cracking, and superior high-velocity oxidation resistance. Successful deposition of René 142 on René 125 provides an avenue to repair legacy hot-section components by depositing superior quality alloys at the damage locations. The microstructure of the deposited René 142 is observed to follow the polycrystalline or EQ morphology of the underlying René 125 substrate. The SLE processed René 142 exhibits dense and crack-free deposits, and microstructure refinement compared to the underlying cast René 125 substrate.
