RoboWAAM

WAAM3D HARDWARE

Standalone shopfloor installation

With RoboWAAM the only services you need to print are power and gas.

Printing the Future

RoboWAAM features the highest payload, largest build volume and the most on-board sensors of all the wire-DED systems out there.

Reconfiguration made easy

RoboWAAM can be easily reconfigured to accommodate wide-area parts with tooling of various sizes, or rotational components.

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.

We offer full-service metal additive manufacturing for manufacturers of highly critical metal components and structures.

How do we ensure a smooth implementation of the WAAM process within your organisation or your suppliers?

RoboWAAM leverages on WAAM3D’s best-in-class integrated hardware-software ecosystem

It works seamlessly with the programmes generated by WAAMPlanner. It is managed by WAAMCtrl, the operating system overseeing the whole of the build process, providing process monitoring and governance over the many health and safety capabilities, as well as fully auditable process trail.

The beauty of RoboWAAM is what’s
happening behind its gorgeous enclosure.

Our 20 years of experience has enabled us to design 80% of the components from scratch to create a truly coherent hardware and software ecosystem.

It’s all the innovation we have
packed into RoboWAAM.

What is the difference between a robotic welding cell and a WAAM system?

Fume Management System

END EFFECTOR

WAAM3D HARDWARE

Our end-effectors are where
the magic happens.

Quality uncompromised

With our optional local shield variant you can ensure quality without the need for a global enclosure purge.

Designed for WAAM

Much more than just a torch: our bespoke end-effectors have aerospace robustness and a compact footprint.

Home to advanced process intelligence

Our end-effectors connect to WAAMCtrl to let you know what is happening throughout the build process.

The melt pool is established, material is deposited, and the on-board sensors deliver data to WAAMCtrl, right to the operator’s eyes and ears in real time.

Our bespoke end effectors provide heat and wire feedstock but they can also in real time:

Measure the layer height and reconstruct the 3D shape of the deposit thanks to ShapeTechTM to continuously verify the geometry’s accuracy.

Monitor pre-deposition and post-deposition temperatures with two advanced pyrometers. This ensures a consistent start temperature and cross-checks the robustness of process parameters.

View the melt pool with the remote process camera.

Provide electronic and automatic adjustment of the wire position for additional process stability (only available for PTA).

Locally shield reactive materials to reduce gas consumptions and pre-deposition operations time (optional with local shielding).
