Download the 2021 May/June Issue of 3D ADEPT Mag NOW!
As we release this third issue of 3D ADEPT Mag for the year 2021, we can’t help but note that sanitary measures combined with the advancement of vaccinations around the world will already enable some organizers of events to effectively hold some in—person trade shows as from this Summer.
This means that this May/June issue of 3D ADEPT Mag will not only be distributed at home/office, but the 5th Military Additive Manufacturing Summit that is being held in the USA, will be receiving and distributing this May/June issue to all their attendees as well.
That being said, this issue is specifically interesting for military uses as we have extensively covered the topic of wire-arc additive manufacturing in our “dossier”. A dossier reminding us that WAAM may be one of the oldest processes to exist – with the first patent being delivered in the 1920s – but it remains the least highlighted in the range of AM processes, and obviously, there is a reason for this.
Main feature: Unveiling the disguised complexities of Wire-Arc Additive Manufacturing
Although it is acknowledged for the large-scale manufacturing industry, WAAM does come with a number of constraints at the manufacturing level. The present dossier aims to:
- Help professionals understand how the WAAM process works;
- Shed light on the different challenges engineers often encounter when manufacturing with WAAM and shed light on the potential solutions that could be used to overcome them. This includes revealing the gap in the supply chain we mentioned above;
- Share some examples of applications & a few WAAM-dedicated solutions available on the market.
