Wire arc additive manufacturing (WAAM) uses arc welding to build up the component in layers. A metal wire is melted at the right place using a welding torch to form the desired blank. The rotating building platform means that the material build-up takes place across 5 axes with a maximum component size of 1 m³. This allows complex structures or cavities to be manufactured. The built-up component is then finally machined by CNC milling.
