DOE Laboratory to Use Senvol’s AM Data-Collection Procedures

Wednesday, September 20, 2017
 
Additive-manufacturing (AM) database operator Senvol, LLC, New York, NY, and the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) have signed a two-year research agreement focused on pedigreed AM data generation. Senvol and ORNL will use Senvol’s Standard Operating Procedure document, which covers the collection of appropriate geometric information, key processing parameters and material-testing protocols. The partners will evaluate this information in order to define best practices and ensure that all required data is captured and accurately extracted during AM data-generation projects.

BeAM Machines Debuts New Cincinnati Location

Tuesday, September 5, 2017
 

At an August 31 open house, BeAM Machines introduced its 20,000-sq.ft. facility in Blue Ash, OH, near Cincinnati, where it will handle sales, service, process/material development, applications, R&D and training. The event included live demonstrations of the company’s directed-energy-deposition (DED) additive-manufacturing (AM) machines, including its flagship product, the Magic 2.0 (pictured). The facility houses a dedicated AM workspace, metallurgical lab, applications-training section, assembly area and post-process machining department.

DED works by feeding metallic powder through a deposition nozzle and melting it with a high-power laser to create a layer-by-layer construction, with CNC control to provide accuracy (see video). It can create parts from various materials including stainless steel, titanium, nickel alloys and cobalt chromium. The Magic 2.0, a large-scale five-axis machine, is designed for serial production or repair of high-value components in industries with long lead times and high buy-to-fly ratios, according to Tim Bell, who, as BeAM Machines’ general manager and vice president of U.S. business development, heads up the new facility.

Other products include the Mobile, a small-scale five-axis machine, ideal for material research, low-volume production and repair of thin-walled and complex parts, and the new Modulo, a medium-scale five-axis serial production machine for constrained space environments and remote sites such as oil rigs and military-conflict zones.
