ALD Vacuum Technologies, GmbH, Hanau, Germany, has begun operation of its new large-format Electron Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-EB) Additive Manufacturing machine, EBuild® 850.

The new machine, developed by ALD Vacuum Technologies, has a build volume of 850 x 850 x 1000 mm and maximum electron beam power of 45 kW. A high temperature vacuum process eliminates the absorption of impurities, such as oxygen, pores and cracks, resulting in increased material quality. The machine also includes in-situ process control via backscattered electron imaging for quality assurance.

The EBuild Pilot System is now available for customer process developments and trials. ALD will present the EBuild 850 at Formnext in Hall 12.0, D66.
