Title: Electron Beam Melting Technology Improvements

Abstract

ORNL and Arcam AB have collaborated to improve and broaden the application and dissemination of electron beam melting (EBM) technology. While EBM is a promising additive manufacturing technology with the potential to revolutionize many industries, several issues prevent its widespread adoption at an industrial scale. In collaboration with Arcam, ORNL researchers have worked to improve the reliability of EBM processes using in-situ monitoring methods and data analytics, developed new scan strategies to allow site-specific microstructure control, and expanded EBM technologies to high-temperature materials. This report details the results of this collaboration.
