The end-effector is available for several processes and shielding configurations: with and without wire position motion system (non needed for coaxial-feed processes), as well as with and without local shielding option (not needed for non-reactive metals or in case or deposition within a tent or chamber)

Motion

The position of the end effector is recorded throughout the deposition process. The recorded trajectory is then matched with the data coming from all the other sensors.

Layer height

Achieving the target layer height is just as important as is challenging, in directed-energy-deposition processes. Based on our unique laser interferometric solution, the layer height is continuously monitored and recorded, without any need to interrupt the process. This capability potentially enables the operator to perform corrective actions immediately, should the deviation be unacceptable.

Melt pool

A high-resolution camera looks at the side of the melt-pool and enables the operator to monitor the behaviour of the process remotely.

Power

Arc current and arc voltage are monitored and their values recorded for quality control and assurance.

Wire feed speed

Wire feed speed is monitored and its value recorded for quality control and assurance.

Wire auto-positioning

Our proprietary closed-feedback-loops on wire position (for off-axis-feed processes) automatically adjusts the position of the wire, ensuring continued optimal metal transfer.

Temperature
by admin — last modified 15 Jan, 2020 12:24 PM

The temperatures before and after the deposition are continuously monitored and recorded by two pyrometers. These temperature values are used also to know when to start deposition, or to interrupt local gas shielding in the case of reactive materials like titanium.

Environment
by admin — last modified 15 Jan, 2020 12:24 PM

The oxygen content within the deposition environment in continuously monitored and recorded.
