Jeol Ltd., a manufacturer of metrology, scientific, medical and other industrial equipment, headquartered in Tokyo, Japan, has announced the release of its JAM-5200EBM, an Electron Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-EB) metal Additive Manufacturing machine.

Leveraging technology from its high-performance electron microscopes and electron beam lithography system for semiconductor manufacturing, the JAM-5200EBM is said to offer high-power, high-density and high-speed AM production.

The machine makes use of a long-life cathode, providing over 1,500 hours of service, improving productivity by reducing the downtime for cathode replacement. Also of note is that no helium gas is needed to prevent the scattering of powder, here Jeol’s unique ‘e-Shield’ powder dispersal prevention system is used to avoid the scattering phenomenon.

An automatic electron beam adjustment function adjusts the focus and the distortion of the electron beam, said to result in high-quality and high-reproducibility of the new machine. A remote monitoring system also allows systems to be monitored 24/7.
