Composition, structure and properties of specimens made from Inconel 718 by selective laser melting (SLM) process applied in manufacture of aircraft grade parts are studied in this article. A comparison of a structure and properties of specimens subjected to a separate hot isostatic pressing (HIP), separate heat treatment, and a HIP followed by heat treatment typically used for Inconel 718 alloy has been carried out. It was found out that the best combination of mechanical properties is attained on the specimens subjected by HIP followed by heat treatment, which results in healing pores and discontinuities, γ΄΄-phase strengthening and remarkable reduction of excessive lamellar δ-phase.
