Wayland Additive, based in Huddersfield, UK, will be showcasing its NeuBeam Additive Manufacturing technology at the upcoming AMADS (AM for Aerospace, Defence & Space) event, taking place in Bristol, UK, February 27-28, 2024.

NeuBeam is an Electron Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-EB) process that effectively neutralises the charge accumulation generated by the electron beam, said to be a limitation of traditional e-beam technologies. Eliminating the charge removes the need for the pre-sintering of the bed, allowing parts to be easily removed without a hardened sinter cake.

The NeuBeam technology is used in Wayland’s Calibur3 metal AM machines and can produce fully dense parts in a wide range of materials, many of which are not compatible with traditional Electron Beam or Laser Beam PBF processes such as refractory metals and highly reflective alloys.

Peter Hansford, CRO at Wayland stated, “Metal AM, in general, has come a long way and has made inroads for some production applications. Calibur3 has the potential to take production applications to the next level in a number of ways. At AMADS, our team members will be available to discuss new applications and new materials enabled by the capabilities of NeuBeam. We invite AMADS attendees to learn more about our hot part process, which eliminates residual thermal stresses, simplifies powder removal, and reduces post-processing requirements as well as the open approach that allows us to test and prove new material parameters in a matter of weeks.”

Metallurgical requirements can be tailored to match specific application needs, expanding the range of metals that can be utilised. The NeuBeam process also eliminates residual stresses, resulting in stress-free, crack-free parts, reduced energy consumption, and improved powder flow post-build.

“Since commercialising our technology two years ago, Wayland is now shipping machines all over the world across a variety of industry sectors, including aerospace, to exploit the potential of our NeuBeam AM process,” Hansford concluded.
