Advantages of wire-arc additive manufacturing
3D printing technology has historically been restricted to printing small components, but Lincoln Electric’s wire-arc AM is breaking size and weight barriers with its innovative process.
Wire-arc additive manufacturing
Advances in wire-based additive manufacturing (AM) technology have created new opportunities for prototyping, legacy part production, and aerospace tooling.
Large-part Additive Manufacturing
WAAM uses GMAW to create layers out of metal wire to grow large parts. Additive manufacturing (AM) is a layered manufacturing process in which layers upon layers of material are stacked upon one another and fused together to make a singular object.
Shaping Up Wire-arc AM can be used to build very large parts to near-net shape.
