WEBAM for flexible production
The additive manufacturing of components using an electron beam (WEBAM – Wire Electron Beam Additive Manufacturing) enables faster production times than with other comparable AM processes. Using the principle of wire deposition welding, semi-finished products as well as large metal components can be manufactured in a flexible and highly productive manner – from a batch size of 1 up to serial production.
The production of three-dimensional industrial components is performed by continuously fusing of metal wire within the vacuum of the electron beam system. The inert environment prevents the material from being influenced by atmospheric gases. Using the electron beam also allows for the creation of near-net-shape workpieces out of metals that used to be difficult to weld in one single process step. Furthermore, the process is fast, material efficient and economic. Using our digitally controlled process, all operations can be automated and reproduced. There’s another benefit: Upon request, the material can be varied throughout the fusing process so that the component can be composed of different materials.
EBM for the fast production of small workpieces rich in details
Additive manufacturing using an electron beam in a powder bed (EBM – Electron Beam Melting) is suitable for both flexible and industrial serial production of compact as well as highly detailed components. Using our process, production times are shorter than with other comparable manufacturing processes.
With EBM, the component structure is melted in a powder bed using an electron beam that is added by the machine layer by layer. This process can be used for common alloys as well as for metals that, up until now, were difficult to process.
Our efficient and process reliable system concept allows for significantly faster production of workpieces. Several components can be formed within one production process. In addition, the need for support structures as with other powder bed processes is eliminated. There’s another advantage: Components are created in a high, verifiable and reproducible quality due to an automated and digitally controlled process as well as in-situ monitoring.
