Cleveland – Wolf Robotics, a Lincoln Electric Company, is paving the road for advancements in Robotic Big Area Additive Manufacturing (R-BAAM). This effort will help 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 demonstrated arc-based steel additives using Power Wave® Surface Tension Transfer® (STT®) Lincoln Electric’s booth at the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) in Chicago’s McCormick Place, Sept. 12-17.
 
Cultivated as a result of an industry need, Wolf developed this innovative, multi-meter build envelope, multi-feedstock and multi-material robotic additive system. As the first of its kind, the system features both a laser powder and a laser hot-wire process for steel and titanium materials.
 
The system 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. 

Learn more about the advancements in R-BAAM at FABTECH 2016, North America's largest metal forming, fabricating, welding and finishing event. Visitors can see new products and welding demonstrations at booth N5200, Nov. 16-18, at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

Lincoln Electric is the world leader in the design, development and manufacture of arc welding products, robotic arc welding systems, plasma and oxy-fuel cutting equipment and has a leading global position in the brazing and soldering alloys market. Headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio, Lincoln has 48 manufacturing locations, including operations and joint ventures in 19 countries and a worldwide network of distributors and sales offices covering more than 160 countries.
