Wayland Additive, Huddersfield, UK, has launched Calibur3, the company’s first Additive Manufacturing machine, using its NeuBeam® metal AM technology. During a virtual launch from its headquarters in Huddersfield, the full capabilities of the NeuBeam process embedded into the Calibur3 were explained.

NeuBeam is said to represent a completely new system architecture based on a stable, reliable and flexible Electron Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-EB) process. It is able to produce fully dense parts in a wide range of materials, many of which are not compatible with traditional electron beam or laser-based processes, such as refractory metals and highly reflective alloys. As a result, the NeuBeam process can demonstrate vastly improved metallurgy, without many of the compromises that existing metal AM processes necessitate.

“It was a privilege for me to explain the genesis of our work at Wayland Additive and the ‘why’ behind the NeuBeam process and Calibur3,” stated Will Richardson, CEO of Wayland Additive. “All the hard work by the Wayland team that has gone into the development of the process and this new hardware platform has been realised today. I am so proud of our team and their dedication to the launch initiative. Now it is our mission to really demonstrate the difference that Calibur3 can make for metal AM applications.”

Peter Hansford, Wayland’s Director of Business Development expanded further on the potential for new applications and shared the real opportunities Calibur3 brings for business. “The Calibur3 system featuring the NeuBeam process offers a true 3rd way that sits between SLM & EBM systems, and provides a leap forward compared with any existing alternatives. In addition, Calibur3 promotes innovation, which should be key to any advancement in technology. And because it overcomes the compromises that most companies have to contend with when using metal AM, they can now revisit applications that were previously seen as troublesome or impossible and/or begin development projects with a clearer view of the process and more room to operate in. NeuBeam is a metal AM process that saves both time and money from end-to-end, one that can benefit commercial objectives through true production partnerships.”
