Dr. Filomeno Martina of Cranfield University presents at the 3D Printing Materials Conference: “Large scale metal additive manufacturing”.
Depositing large structures (20kg+) in titanium, aluminium, steel and other materials is possible by using Wire+arc additive manufacturing (WAAM). High deposition rates, low material and equipment costs, and good structural integrity make WAAM a suitable candidate for replacing the current way of manufacturing out of solid billets or large forgings. This presentation will cover the latest advances in the WAAM technology from both the practical and metallurgical point of views.
