Batch Manufacturing In Aerospace

Core Benefits with EBM- Electron Beam Melting
Hot Process - No residual stress,No heat treatment
Excellent Material Properties - Controlled microstructure, Better than cast, Compliant with applicable standards
Cost-Efficient Production - High productivity, Material recycling, Competitive powder cost
Benefits With EBM
High power (3000W) - Allows for high melting capacity,High productivity
No moving parts in the EB-gun - Extremly fast beam speed 8000m/s, Enables EBM Mulitibeam
Vacuum Process - Clean and controlled environment,Allows processing reactivs materials
Hot process (650C for Titanium) - No residual stress,No heat treatment,Faster melting
Benefits In Aerospace
The Aerospace industry's fundamental characteristics are-Extreme requirements on product performance, Geometric design complexity, Extensive use of Ti alloys, Use of exotic materials, Small/Medium production series
EBM® is the ultimate Additive Manufacturing solution for the aerospace industry with its- Design freedom, Excellent material properties, High productivity
Freedom in Design- Optimize geometry for weight savings,Optimize geometry for improved function,Brackets (weight), Brackets (function), Filters (function)
Materials Savings- Buy-To-Fly ratios of 15-20 are common in Aerospace, 95% of the material is machined away as scrap, For EBM®, Buy-To-Fly ratio is close to 1
Materials Flexibility- Many alloys with unique characteristics are difficult to cast and forge. EBM® has demonstrated that it can be used to process such alloys
