Post-Processing: The Achilles Heel of Additive Manufacturing

Surface finishing and other post-processing requirements for AM production applications can run up to 60 percent of the total cost per finished part. Here’s how more capable and connected systems can simplify the overall process chain, provide economically viable parts and improve operational sustainability, cost, and timeliness.

Surface finishing and other post-processing requirements for AM production applications can run...

Reimagined Parts: Additive Manufacturing Takes Center Stage (Part One)

Additive manufacturing is moving beyond prototypes, part repair and producing non-critical parts, and entering the direct production of critical parts and lot sizes. To deliver these jobs quicker, digital networks are integrating AM with product design software, CAD/CAM, ERP and automation to develop new approaches that can build innovative products faster than ever.

Wayland Additive’s NeuBeam powder bed fusion

Unlike electron beam and laser powder bed fusion (PBF), Wayland Additive’s Calibur 3 uses NeuBeam technology, which focuses heat on the part instead of the process bed. As a result, the machine is able to process refractory metals and highly reflective alloys.
