Wire Arc Deposition

Technology deep dive

Wire Arc Deposition

Wire Arc Deposition, also known as Wire Arc Additive Manufacturing, is based on conventional wire based welding processes such as MIG, MAG and TIG welding. Due to its simplicity and low cost input material, the technology promises very high build rates at low cost. However, to achieve the full flexibility that Additive Manufacturing claims, further development efforts in data preparation are still necessary.

The complexity of the complete Additive Manufacturing process chain

The 3D Printing process is only one step of the Additive Manufacturing process chain. In the past years, the focus of many Additive Manufacturing users shifted from only the ideal AM design more and more to the pre and post processes of Additive Manufacturing. Today, users begin to understand not only design for AM is important, but also to find a design that suits post processing steps such as machining or surface processing.
