BeAM Machines Inc., Cincinnati, Ohio, USA, the American subsidiary of BeAM Machines SAS in France, will begin taking pre-orders for the company’s new Modulo 5-axis Directed Energy Deposition (DED) machine at this year’s RAPID + TCT event, to be held in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA, May 8-11, 2017. The new machine offers BeAM’s standard suite of options including a 2kW fibre laser, fully controlled inert atmosphere system, multiple deposition heads, touch trigger probe and light duty milling spindle for dry machining, as well as reportedly enhancing portability and reducing overall size.

Tim Bell, General Manager of BeAM Machines, Inc., explained,  “The Modulo is truly a unique industrial DED solution for Additive Manufacturing, largely due to its integrated peripherals.  Typical DED systems place the required secondary equipment (laser, chiller, fume extractor, etc.) outside the machine envelope, which requires a considerable amount of floor space in addition to the machine. The BeAM Modulo fully integrates all required peripherals into the machine cabinet, significantly reducing the total required floor space.”

Once the machine is set up and in its intended position, all that is required is an electrical connection and a supply of inert gas, states the company. The Modulo will be the first machine sold directly by BeAM Machines Inc., which opened in January 2017.
