Novel 3D printing technique for metal components using multiple energy beams.
Additive Manufacturing (AM) applied to the production of metal components by the melting of metal powders rely on expensive and lengthy methods. Well established technologies using Electron Beam (EBM) and Selective Laser Melting (SLM) currently steer a single or a limited number of beams to raster scan a bed of powder. These methodologies are relatively slow and expensive compared to conventional manufacturing techniques. They have limited production rates for obtaining high density, and high quality, functional components. Even though they are continuously increasing their performance they can only offer an increased throughput at a high cost, requiring multi-stage and post-processing operations. As an alternative, the simultaneous use of multiple laser beams can increase productivity, and reduce some of the issues found during processing of metal powders.
