Metal AM System targets aerospace and casting industries.

Press Release Summary:

Featuring both laser powder and laser hot-wire process, Robotic Metal Additive Manufacturing System will help move metal additive manufacturing out of traditional, small-area, bed-built processes and expand build envelopes for robotically printing metal parts. System is suited for producing titanium aerospace parts and low-volume, complex parts to replace design-constrained castings in steel-casting sector.


Original Press Release:

Wolf Robotics, Lincoln Electric Advance Robotic Metal Additive Manufacturing in Aerospace and Casting Industries

New system that expands build envelopes will debut at IMTS 2016 in Chicago

Cleveland – Wolf Robotics, a Lincoln Electric Company, is paving the road for advancements in Robotic Big Area Additive Manufacturing (R-BAAM). This effort will help move metal additive manufacturing out of the traditional, small-area, bed-built processes and dramatically expand build envelopes for robotically printing metal parts.

Wolf Robotics will demonstrate arc-based steel additives using Power Wave® Surface Tension Transfer® (STT®) Lincoln Electric’s booth at the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) in Chicago’s McCormick Place, Sept. 12-17. The booth is located in the North Building, B Hall - Fabricating & Lasers - N-6520.

Cultivated as a result of an industry need, Wolf developed this innovative, multi-meter build envelope, multi-feedstock and multi-material robotic additive system. As the first of its kind, the system features both a laser powder and a laser hot-wire process for steel and titanium materials.

The system is ideal for producing titanium aerospace parts and low-volume, complex parts to replace traditional, high-cost, design-constrained castings in the steel-casting sector.

Lincoln Electric is the world leader in the design, development and manufacture of arc welding products, robotic arc welding systems, plasma and oxy-fuel cutting equipment and has a leading global position in the brazing and soldering alloys market. Headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio, Lincoln has 48 manufacturing locations, including operations and joint ventures in 19 countries and a worldwide network of distributors and sales offices covering more than 160 countries.
