BeAM, Strasbourg, France, will showcase new monitoring solutions and multi-material applications for Directed Energy Deposition (DED) Additive Manufacturing at Formnext 2019, Frankfurt, Germany, which is taking place from November 19–22. As part of the showcase the company will present its new generation of DED machines, the Modulo 250 and Modulo 400.

According to BeAM, the Modulo 400 system has the following new features:

  • An automatic tool changer to swap automatically between two different deposition heads and a touch probe
  • A vibrating powder delivery system with up to four feeders, providing a more stable powder flow
  • Process monitoring options, such as an integrated pyrometer to control the melt-pool temperature
  • Integration of Siemens NX environment and utilisation of digital twin technology to program and simulate the entire build as well as avoiding collisions of the deposition head.

The company’s Modulo 250 machine is suitable for the production of small parts as well as materials research. New materials will also reportedly be showcased at Formnext, including Copper-Aluminium, Stellite, Ferro55 and Ti5553, as well as multimaterial parts and functionally graded materials.

At BeAM’s stand in the exhibition hall, there will also be a demonstration of how the Modulo 250 machine can be installed in the Flexcare Anywhere Factory, a modular and mobile factory concept offered by AddUp Group, Clermont-Ferrand, France, which acquired 100% of BeAM in June 2018.
