Metal Additive Manufacturing

Metal additive manufacturing is the process of creating a 3D object from a CAD model by building it up from metal powder, layer by layer. This technology can produce complex shapes that are not possible with traditional manufacturing methods.

The most common industries to commission production of specific components are aerospace, defense and transport, so reducing the chances of oxidization of the metal during the build process is essential as this can lead to a build failure, stress test failure or also a density test failure due to low quality standards. Interstitial absorption of any oxide embrittles the weld and may render the component useless.

Why Additive Manufacturing versus traditional methods?

This technology can reduce material waste, the amount of steps in the production process, and decrease the amount of distinct parts in the assembly process by a significant amount.

The future adoption of this technology in many industries depends on the measurement and control of oxygen concentration within the manufacturing process.
