WAAMCtrl and what it does

Key to the success of any component is that it meets set parameters and is safe. Wire-arc additive manufacturing can deliver many benefits to manufacturers, yet in the past the qualification and production aspects of the process were more difficult to monitor. Now, thanks to the introduction of WAAMCtrl®, a digital quality control tool with the support of robust Statistical Process Control (SPC) is now possible.
