How the ADDere Process Works
The ADDere Manufacturing Process
The Build Volume
ADDere’s additive manufacturing systems have a build volume that starts at around 15 cm (6 inches) cubed and scales upwards to meters for custom large-scale productions. To achieve the best results in speed and efficiency builds typically have a layer height of around 1-2mm, and a wall thickness starting at about 5mm.
The Components of ADDere
The ADDere additive manufacturing process is built around four main components: the laser heat source, the material delivery system, the motion control system and the ADDere Runtime Software control system.
Can ADDere help your business?
The demand for exotic superalloy metals has been rapidly growing in the aerospace, defense, marine, oil & gas and petrochemical industries. These exotic metals are inherently expensive and difficult to machine or cast on a large scale. However, with ADDere’s LWAM process, individual parts can be manufactured faster and more cost-effectively by eliminating material waste that would otherwise result from traditional machining or casting.
If ADDere’s high-quality large-scale metal additive manufacturing process sounds like something that your firm would benefit from, whether it’s in aerospace, defense, oil & gas or any other industry, contact us today. The ADDere laser-wire additive manufacturing process can produce large-scale builds in a wide range of sizes and materials near net shape to fit all your manufacturing needs.
