The headline benefits of metal additive manufacturing (AM) are generally well known across most industry sectors. Specifically, the ability to build stronger, lighter parts with complex geometries using less material. One of the greatest limitations of metal AM processes is the relatively small number and type of metal materials that can be utilised.
A core reason behind the development of Wayland’s NeuBeam metal AM process is to vastly improve material options and metallurgy to offer a wider scope of opportunities across more industrial applications. The Calibur3 system and its innate ability to process “difficult” materials is unlocking new metal applications in a range of industries that other AM processes cannot achieve.
