Wayland Additive has introduced the signing of a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with engineering consultancy EWI Inc., which can see one if its Calibur3 additive manufacturing methods put in at EWI’s Buffalo Manufacturing Works facility within the US.
The 2 corporations are set to work collectively to determine collaborative industrial and authorities initiatives, and additional advance electron beam (eBeam) powder mattress fusion (PBF) expertise.
Will Richardson, CEO at Wayland, which first launched its Calibur3 manufacturing system final yr based mostly on its proprietary NeuBeam metallic 3D printing course of, commented: “EWI has a stellar popularity for working with and leveraging superior expertise for trade. Calibur3 opens up many new alternatives for manufacturing functions of eBeam metallic additive manufacturing due to the distinctive capabilities of the NeuBeam course of. EWI shortly understood this and have dedicated to working with us to develop new industrial alternatives in various areas. We’re very excited to assist EWI and the Buffalo Manufacturing Works staff going ahead.”
EWI is an impartial engineering consultancy, trusted throughout trade and authorities, with complete labs and superior manufacturing expertise assets devoted to manufacturing course of improvement and enchancment. Working with Wayland, EWI expects to leverage the capabilities of the Calibur3, which is already being deployed bv Canadian engineering consultancy agency Exergy Options, to determine new alternatives for metallic AM manufacturing functions.
Mark Barfoot, Director of AM Applications at EWI mentioned: “The Wayland expertise was recognized as a part of an Additive Manufacturing Consortium (AMC) mission that researched rising applied sciences. Calibur3’s means to print with out solidifying all the powder cake offers it the potential to supply options that had been previously not fitted to eBeam PBF.”
“We look ahead to working with the modern staff at Wayland Additive so as to add this distinctive functionality to our suite of metallic AM processes,” Ron Aman, Senior Know-how Chief of AM at EWI added. “Our clients are very eager about leveraging the capabilities of Calibur3 for his or her functions and EWI is effectively positioned within the US and worldwide markets to assist the breadth and depth of curiosity.
