Additive Manufacturing | Cladding / Wire Arc Additive Manufactureing (WAAM)
Equal Heat Distribution
The Wire Arc Additive Manufacturing is a combination of two processes: Gas Metal Arc Welding and additive manufacturing. The metal wire is melted by using an electric arc and deposited layer by layer until a desired 3D shape is created. The heat of the former layer may influence the shape of the next layer. A temperature monitoring during the cladding process and the information of the heat distribution gives feedback of the quality of the welding process.
