Laser additive manufacturing was employed to print near net shape components from gas atomised Ni-Mn-Ga powder. The heat-treated components exhibited a polycrystalline 10M martensitic structure. The magnetic-field-induced strain was measured to be 100 ppm. The results indicate that it is possible to use laser additive manufacturing to produce Ni-Mn-Ga devices that contain sections that can be strained by an external magnetic field.
