What is Directed Energy Deposition and how does it work?

Directed Energy Deposition (DED) 3D printing is an amazing additive manufacturing process that allows for new repair possibilities, the ability to add features, and the creation of near net shapes.

DED is an additive manufacturing process where focused thermal energy is used to fuse materials by melting them as they are deposited. BeAM’s industrial solutions typically utilize a deposition nozzle mounted on the z-axis of a DED dedicated CNC machine.

This allows the continuous 5 axis freedom to build/repair components layer by layer without the need for support structures. Utilizing traditional CNC controls and using ISO g-code gives our customers tools that their skilled workforce is already accustomed to.

DED in action!

Many of BeAM’s customers include businesses in Aviation/Aerospace, Gas and Oil, and Universities.
