Following the virtual launch of Wayland Additive’s Calibur3, the company’s first Additive Manufacturing machine featuring its NeuBeam® metal AM technology, the company reports that there are a limited number of places still available for its physical launch event at its Huddersfield, UK, premises on May 19, 2021.

Taking place two days after the proposed further opening of premises in England as the country manoeuvres out of COVID-19 isolation, Wayland has implemented a series of procedures to ensure the safety of attendees and will be curating the event so that only small groups will be located together at any one time. The physical launch event will be the first time that interested parties can actually stand face-to-face with the Calibur3 metal AM machine, and can meet and discuss the technology with various members of the Wayland team.

“Our virtual event was extremely well attended, and we received a lot of interest as registrants heard in detail how the NeuBeamTM process contained in our Calibur3 metal AM system could be beneficial to their production requirements,” stated Peter Hansford, Director of Business Development. “However, there is nothing like being able to meet in person with our potential customers, media, and interested parties who are all going to join us in Huddersfield on May 19th. Until you actually stand in front of the Calibur3 and see the machine, look at how it works, and touch the parts that the process produces, you cannot get a precise feel for the technology. We are excited to host people at our HQ, and feel certain that this will be a day which will stimulate ideas and indicate possibilities for innovation through the use of our next-generation metal AM process.”

The company explains that NeuBeam is an AM process with a more open system which offers a much clearer picture of what is happening during the process. This means that companies are able to manufacture precisely what they want, rather than merely accepting what is produced.

“Many of the existing metal AM processes that are currently commercially available are more mature versions of the original ‘test-bed’ processes that were developed for rapid prototyping – that is to say, they were not designed specifically for production applications or to meet the high-level demands of a serious production environment, rather, they have been adapted and/or tweaked to try and meet these demands, while trying to overcome the inherent process limitations,” Hansford continued. “The team at Wayland, through the development of the NeuBeam process, has not just adapted off-the-shelf components and re-purposed them for additive or tweaked an existing process. Instead, the Wayland scientists, coming from the semi-conductor industry, have transferred their knowledge and built a new process and system from the ground up. In so doing the process has been designed specifically for production and has not been constrained by the legacy of rapid prototyping.”

Registration for the in-person event is available through the company’s website.
