ADDere , the metal AM arm of Wisconsin-based Midwest Engineered Systems (MWES), has demonstrated how its Laser Wire Additive Manufacturing (LWAM) technology is a viable solution for large-scale metal 3D printing.
The company says its technology is capable of building large-scale, high-mass components for industries such as aerospace, energy, marine, defense and more. As powder-based metal AM technologies continue to progress, the focus has increasingly turned to the production of small-scale parts. In other words, scaling up powder-based metal AM processes has remained a distinct challenge.
ADDere says its LWAM technology offers a viable alternative for manufacturers seeking to explore AM for larger scale parts.
“Currently, the AM focus has been on powder based metal systems. That focus had a lot of potential markets stuck on the outside looking in,” commented Scott Woida, ADDere President. “But those industries now see a legitimate 3D printing roadmap for their parts through […]
