discuss some of these issues with you. Please contact myself or Steve Wirta
(our LENS manager). His email is and my contact

Dear List,

I am investigating the use of LENS type processing to form metal matrix
composites "in-situ" as part of the build process. Is there anyone out
there with real experience of this area who would like to discuss the
process / metallurgical issues involved?
