Powering BeAM Directed Energy Deposition with AutoDesk PowerMill

Constant pressure for greater fuel efficiency is forcing aerospace manufacturers to build complex and robust parts, faster and cheaper.  

BeAM is a manufacturer of industrial metal additive machines which use directed energy deposition, also called laser metal deposition.

Working with Autodesk, BeAM can produce parts quickly, on-demand and to specification. BeAM has a broad range of customers in the aeronautics, defense, and energy sectors. Directed energy deposition is the innovative solution used to build near net shapes with a great competitive advantage.

Using PowerMill Additive, BeAM is able to make complex parts that are closer to the finished size and shape, requiring a minimal amount of finishing processes such as machining. Making parts faster will certainly help enable new design freedom to deliver greater fuel efficiencies and reduce the environmental impact.
