Wire Arc Additive Manufacturing (WAAM) is an application whereby parts are produced using the combination of an electric arc as a heat source and wire as feedstock. It has a certain similarity to FDM technology, by welding wires to build near net shape parts in layers. The raw part is built in 3D on a 5axis build platform. Maximum part size is 1 m³. The raw part undergoes cnc milling to get its final condition. Benefits of the technology are a high material efficiency which is able to save 60% of manufacturing costs when compared to conventional subtractive cnc technology, and build rates that outrival any powder-bed-based AM technology. Areas of application are aviation, motorsport, and machinery, but WAAM is also recommendable to manufacture outstanding design products.
