Wolf Robotics, a Lincoln Electric Company, is paving the way for advancements in Robotic Big Area Additive Manufacturing (R-BAAM) with its Power Wave® Surface Tension Transfer® (STT®) system.
The first of its kind, Wolf Robotics developed the innovative, multi-meter build envelope, multi-feedstock and multi-material robotic additive system as a result of industry need.
The system features both a laser powder and a laser hot-wire process for steel and titanium materials, and is ideal for producing titanium aerospace parts and low-volume, complex parts to replace traditional, high-cost, design-constrained castings in the steel-casting sector.
This will help to move metal additive manufacturing out of the traditional, small-area, bed-built processes and dramatically expand build envelopes for robotically printing metal parts.
Wolf Robotics will demonstrate arc-based steel additives using the Power Wave® Surface Tension Transfer® (STT®) system at Lincoln Electric’s booth at the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) in Chicago’s McCormick Place, from 12th – 17th September.
The booth will be located in the North Building, B Hall – Fabricating & lasers – N-6520.
US Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx has announced that the Department’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) propose equipping heavy-duty vehicles with devices that limit their speeds on US roadways, and requiring those devices be set to a maximum speed.
