We have developed state-of-the-art WAAM additive manufacturing technologies that help our customers implementing outstanding AM solutions for large-scale industrial metal components.

Wire Arc Additive Manufacturing enables the manufacture of components up to very large size and mass, whether in titanium, steel, bronze, nickel, or aluminium.

Advantages of using WAAM Technology.

Cost reductions

With no forging tooling or casting dies, and with reduced material usage, parts are cheaper to produce.

Waste Reduction

WAAM process creates near net shape components needing minimal finishing, minimising machining swarf and raw material usage.

Simplified supply chains

WAAM can enable onshoring of metal parts and local management of spare parts and repairs.

Improved Properties

With our patented in-process cold-work solutions you can achieve forged-like mechanical properties for your parts.

Fabrication Elimination

You will get the freedom and flexibility to merge multiple parts into a single part designed specifically for AM.

Lead Time Reduction

Your parts can be procured much more quickly leveraging on WAAM’s digital process workflow.

Introducing WAAM3D RoboWAAM™

RoboWAAM, our wire arc additive manufacturing machine, was first commissioned in 2020. Our MKII machine, powered by the operating system WAAMCtrl, has novel sensors, specialised end-effectors and advanced health and safety solutions.

"Working with WAAM3D is a guarantee of success that reduces the risks and costs of developing new products using DED-Arc (WAAM) technology. For us, WAAM3D is a provider of premium materials to achieve the highest levels of quality and a single-stop solution provider where we can solve the most demanding challenges of this technology. Working with the WAAM3D team is always a very positive experience."

Pedro Alvarez



"WAAMCtrl will provide full traceability for the user of issues that are discovered during and after subsequent deposits. If an issue was deemed to be material related and full traceability of suppliers' spools were maintained it would be possible to investigate if any issues occurred during the production of that spool."

Daniel Barber

Managing Director

Perryman Europe Ltd

“I am really happy with how this first interaction with WAAM3D has gone, from the support in reaching a good design solution to how rapidly the additional material was deposited for addressing shrinkage issues. We now have a functional part that we can all be proud of and a better understanding of the advantages of the WAAM process.”
