WAAM3D HARDWARE

Microshot of vent robowaam vent

The manufacturing process of the future cannot rely on hardware from the past.

From sensors to end-effectors and automation to health & safety, we have put you, the user, at the core of our hardware design process. We have redefined what state of the art means, in and around the deposition volume, to give you the best possible experience. What’s more, it all comes together in a vehicle through which we enable you to make the best possible parts: RoboWAAM.

THE HARDWARE

RoboWAAM™

RoboWAAM™

The best features of RoboWAAM are the ones you do not see: on board fumes treatment, automatic deposition environment purging, quick wire changeover system, and the 40 sensors keeping an eye on the key process variables, tens of times per second.

END EFFECTORS

End Effectors

Much more than a welding torch needs to go at the end of a robot. Our end effectors measure temperatures, provide melt pool imaging, house ShapeTechTM, and with the local-shielding option they also protect reactive materials from oxidation. For PTA options, they also feature automatic positioning of the wire within the plasma arc, to further ensure consistent deposition.

RoboWAAM™ SYSTEM

RoboWAAM System

RoboWAAM is the result of two decades of R&D work, printing component after component for particularly challenging projects across several industries. Our most meticulous stakeholders have informed our vision for an integrated system which can do what it says on the tin: deliver excellent parts.

ShapetechTM

ShapetechTM

Across the many firsts featured on RoboWAAM, ShapeTechTM is the most impressive. Say goodbye to laser scanners or touch probes. ShapeTechTM is powered by interferometric technology to provide real-time geometrical data, stored on WAAMCtrl®’s server and shown within WAAMCtrl® process dashboard. Not just the layer height, but the full 3D profile of what you are depositing, live.
