The Arcam A2X is designed to process titanium alloys as well as materials that require elevated process temperatures (e.g. titanium aluminide, Inconel 718,…), which makes it suited for both production and materials R&D for sectors such as Aerospace and Industry. This Electron Beam Melting platform offers a large build envelope of 200x200x380 mm.
How the Arcam EBM process works?
The parts are built up layer-by-layer of metal powder melted by a powerful electron beam. Each layer is melted to the exact geometry dictated by the 3D CAD model. The Electron Beam Melting technology allows for high energy to be used providing high melting capacity and productivity. Parts are built in vacuum at elevated temperatures resulting in stress relieved parts with material properties better than cast and comparable to wrought material.
The Arcam A2X is capable of delivering a beam power of up to 3000 W while maintaining a scan speed that allows melting at multiple points simultaneously. The vacuum system is designed to maintain a vacuum level of 1×10-4 mbar or better throughout the entire build cycle.
The Arcam A2X is delivered with a Powder Recovery System enabling 95% recovery of unmelted powder in a build. The Powder Recovery System runs with minimal dust generation for safe operation, closed loop material recovery and elimination of magnetic materials and fine particles. After the recovery process the recycled powder is ready for re-use in the EBM process.
