In the article the experimental study of influences of laser beam profiling on the microstructure of the material obtained by selective laser melting is presented. Microstructure was researched by the example of single-track formation. For these needs the optical and video-monitoring stand was constructed. The defects of single-track formation were obtained by microscopy and video monitoring. The technological gaps for each laser beam profile give the possibility to use higher power for laser systems in the future with the purpose to improve productivity of SLM processing.
