Exploiting the inherent
advantages of AM

On a pan-industrial basis, there is a drive to adopt metal additive manufacturing (AM) technologies as true production alternatives to traditional fabrication processes. This is driven in large part by the fact that throughout all industry sectors companies are seeking to exploit the inherent advantages of AM.

AM allows for design optimization that leads to the creation of geometrically complex and innovative products impossible using conventional manufacturing processes. In addition, AM allows for the consolidation of multi-part assemblies into a smaller number of printed parts, often in unique or multi-material combinations.

Metal AM also saves time in production, eliminating the long lead times associated with casting and forging, and allowing production direct from a CAD file without the need for complex and expensive tooling. Costs are further rationalised as the AM process reduces material consumption and labour and assembly expense.

Complete control
over material properties

Wayland Additive’s NeuBeam metal AM solution is ideally suited for complex, high value metal applications where the emphasis is on process reliability and stability, the production of extremely accurate and fully dense parts in a wide range of materials (including materials not compatible with traditional eBeam or laser PBF processes, such as refractory metals and highly reflective alloys).

The NeuBeam system allows for complete control over material properties, meaning that manufacturers get the parts that they want, not just the best they can get.

Wayland Additive is eager to set up collaborative R&D projects with companies that have demanding applications for which the NeuBeam technology is ideally suited. Manufacturers will benefit from the use of a metal AM system that is open and therefore allows the freedom to develop new process parameters quickly and simply, and which has complete process transparency and control which facilitates monitoring and optimisation of manufacturing processes.


Wayland is addressing the fundamental physics of the eBeam AM process to make it fully stable, more reliable and completely flexible:

  • Fully neutralised charge accumulation
  • No “smoke events”
  • No sinter cakes to deal with
  • Simple powder recovery
  • Ability to build complex internal channels with the benefits of eBeam
