What is Directed Energy Deposition and how does it work?

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.
