Functionally and Geometrically Ordered Ti Armor


Design and Processing of Ti Composite Armors

3: Additive Manufacturing for Ti Composite Armors

Electron Beam Melting

Electron Beam Melting, a process developed by ARCAM, utilizes a high power electron beam to melt metal powders site specifically. Net-shape components are directly manufactured from computer models. ORNL is working with ARCAM to develop and implement in situ process monitoring and closed-loop control to expand the technology for additional materials and to increase the processing speed.

Oak Ridge National Laboratory is working with additive manufacturing equipment manufacturers and end users to revolutionize the way products are designed and built. Our research and development in this crucial field are enabling a wealth of opportunities for product customization, improved performance and multifunctionality.
