With 3D printing on metals, Creatz3d produces small sized to medium implants with complex geometry. Our 3D metal printing is one of the most optimal and precise process to create the required materials. It is also one of the most reliable and fastest manufacturing options in the market. At Creatz3d, we make use of Electron Beam Melting (EBM), which is a powder-based process, used in the additive manufacturing of 3D parts. The powder bed is melted by an electronic beam under high vacuum atmosphere. Our EBM method is a lot more advantageous when compared to traditional manufacturing methods:
EBM holds a lot of promise and potential for additive manufacturing of highly complex 3D parts. Some of the benefits of EBM include:
EBM is perfect for applications that need high strength or high temperature, as it offers strong objects that completely match the characteristics of the fully dense target material.
High energy electron beam is used in the Electron Beam Melting (EBM®) Technology to generate the power output engineered for melting capacity of metal components and productivity to be kept at its maximum. With the paradigm shift in industrial manufacturing towards 3D printing, this process allows for freedom in design by building complex geometries without tooling, fixtures and minimal waste material. Arcam is, in addition to the freedom in design and cost-efficiency, an energy-efficient and environmentally friendly manufacturing route due to its high material utilization.
The EBM® process begins in a vacuum, clean and controlled build environment of high temperature, ensuring the build part maintains the material properties, and results in stress relieved components with build part properties comparable to wrought and even better than that of cast material. Coupled with MultiBeam™ to maintain several melt pools simultaneously, the Arcam process is capable of delivering precision and performance at the forefront of 3D printing in metal.
Achieving target material properties is important for any demanding application, for orthopedic implants and aerospace applications it is absolutely crucial. Arcam is committed to ensure first-class mechanical properties on all materials in our portfolio of standard materials. Extensive testing has verified that EBM-built material fulfills all relevant standards with regards to:
