Electron Beam Melting (EBM)

Brief Overview

EBM is an alternate additive metal process in comparison to DMLS, and is a perfect solution for large parts built using Ti-6AI-4V. The EBM machine uses an electron beam gun to melt metal powder at 70 micron layer thickness, and builds solid details that have homogeneous material structure. Our primary material in usage is Ti-6AI-4V. The build chamber size is 9.8” x 9.8” x 12” and produces large, detailed parts that have particularly high volume and tall Z height. Post process machining, such as welding, brazing, machining or even extrude honing, is often required if tolerances tighter than 0.010” – 0.040” are required. As-built surface quality is approximately 250 RMS but can be finished to 32 RMS.
