Webinar on Wire-Directed Energy Deposition of Nickel-Based Super Alloys

FasTech LLC is excited to invite you to the upcoming webinar on the Wire-Directed Energy Deposition (DED) of Nickel-Based Super Alloys in collaboration with Meltio, game-changers in the additive manufacturing industry with their innovative and unique laser wire technology.

During this webinar, we will cover a range of topics designed to give participants a comprehensive understanding of wire-DED technology and its applications with nickel-based super alloys. Here’s what you can expect:

A Brief Introduction to FasTech and Meltio

Get to know FasTech LLC and Meltio, two actual pioneers in the field of additive manufacturing. Learn about our journeys, core values, and what drives us to continuously push the boundaries of wire arc and laser wire DED technologies.

‘End-to-End’ Manufacturing Capabilities at FasTech

Discover FasTech’s extensive manufacturing services, which include cutting-edge solutions in Reverse Engineering, Additive Manufacturing, 3~5 axis Machining and Metrology services.

Our Gefertec arc605 machines (WAAM technology), enables the efficient fabrication of large metal components with reduced waste, faster production times, and a significant cost advantage over traditional manufacturing methods. But also, with our LW-DED process powered by Meltio, we offer unparalleled precision, allowing the print of intricate designs and the repair of high-value components with minimal heat input and distortion.

Value Proposition for Wire-DED of Metal Components

Understand the significant benefits of using wire-DED technology for metal components. We’ll explain how this method can enhance your manufacturing processes and improve the quality of your products.

Wire-Directed Energy Deposition (wire-DED) is a transformative technology for manufacturing high-quality metal components. It offers several compelling advantages that make it an attractive option for various industrial applications.

One of the most significant benefits of wire-DED is its cost efficiency. By using wire as the feedstock, manufacturers can reduce material waste compared to traditional subtractive manufacturing methods. This efficiency translates into lower overall production costs, making it a more economical choice for producing metal components.

Comparing WAAM and Laser-Wire DED (LW-DED) Technologies at FasTech

Wire Arc Additive Manufacturing (WAAM) and Laser-Wire Directed Energy Deposition (LW-DED) are two advanced techniques we employ at FasTech. This segment will provide a detailed comparison of these technologies, highlighting their unique advantages and applications.

Wire Arc Additive Manufacturing (WAAM) and Laser-Wire Directed Energy Deposition (LW-DED) are both advanced additive manufacturing techniques that use wire feedstock but differ significantly in their processes and applications. WAAM uses an electric arc to melt the wire, resulting in higher deposition rates suitable for large-scale industrial applications like aerospace and shipbuilding, albeit with coarser grain structures that may need more post-processing. Conversely, LW-DED employs a high-power laser to achieve precise control overheat input, producing finer grain structures and detailed geometries with superior surface finishes.

This makes LW-DED ideal for industries requiring high precision, such as medical devices and aerospace components, though it typically involves higher costs and slower deposition rates compared to WAAM.

Nickel-Based Super Alloys Printing Using WAAM and LW-DED

The webinar will delve into the specifics of printing with nickel-based super alloys using WAAM and LW-DED. We will present several case studies to illustrate the practical applications and successes we’ve achieved with these methods.

Meltio Engine Robot Integration

One of the standout features of our additive manufacturing capabilities is the integration of the Meltio Engine Robot. This innovative solution combines the precision of robotic automation with the advanced capabilities of Meltio’s laser-wire deposition technology. The result is a highly flexible and efficient system that can handle complex manufacturing tasks with unparalleled accuracy.

This informative session will be presented by Yashwanth Bandari, Director of Business Development at FasTech, and Alejandro Lázaro, Process and Materials Manager at Meltio.
