Process Technology

Various Arcam electron beam machines for powder bed based additive manufacturing are available. In addition, there is a new in-house developed electron beam machine (Athene) equipped with a 6 kW electron beam gun.
The vacuum-based electron beam technology allows building temperatures over 1000 ° C. These process conditions enable the processing of high performance materials such as intermetallic alloys or superalloys. An InssTek laser metal deposition system allows the fabrication of multi-materials and graded components. Secondary, it is a perfect tool to realize alloy libraries for combinatorial bulk materials development.
