Wayland Additive will be exhibiting its original metal additive manufacturing (AM) system, Calibur3 featuring the NeuBeam process, at Formnext 2021 taking place in Frankfurt, Germany, November 16-19, 2021. After the launch of Calibur3 earlier this year, Formnext will enable opportunity to see Calibur3 in person and to get more understanding of the benefits that Calibur3 offers, specifically with how the NeuBeam metal
AM process facilitates this.

Some of the Wayland Additive team will be available on stand B139 in Hall 12 to meet visitors, introduce them to Calibur3—which will be on the show floor—and discuss any metal AM application requirements. Anyone planning their schedule ahead of the event can pre-book a meeting with a Wayland executive using this meeting booking form.

The NeuBeam process provides access to a metal AM production alternative. NeuBeam delivers on advantages of metal eBeam powder bed fusion (PBF) technology. At Formnext, Wayland will be highlighting the three core principles of NeuBeam:

  • Stability

An issue with electron beam (eBeam) AM technology has been the unstable nature of the processes and Wayland has resolved this. The
Wayland team has experience with eBeam research, development and implementation in the semi-conductor industry. 

  • Flexibility

Another key feature of NeuBeam is that it is a hot part process rather than a hot powder bed process like traditional eBeam processes. Calibur3 can produce parts that are free of residual stresses because the high temperatures are only applied to the part and not the whole powder bed, ensuring free-flowing powder post-build (no sinter cake) and stress-free parts with reduced energy consumption. This makes the process more flexible in part geometries and cost-efficient because heat treatments and other post-processing steps are reduced.

  • Metallurgy

Neubeam is material and can potentially run a much wider palette of metal materials, including refractory metals.

The Wayland Additive team plans to demonstrate Calibur3 in person at Formnext 2021, in Hall 12, Stand B139.
