AbstractThe proposed thesis topic aims at working on the dimensional control of the process of a 17-4PH martensitic stainless steel of interest to the mechanical industry and to increase the size of the manufacturable parts. Currently, most of the parts produced in MBJ have relatively low masses (< 400g) and sizes lower than 150mm diameter. This limits the use of parts in many areas of mechanical engineering.
