BeAM Machines manufactures 3D additive manufacturing machines that use a combination of DED and computer numerical control (CNC). DED works by feeding metallic powder through a deposition nozzle and melting it with a high-power laser to create a layer-by-layer construction with CNC-controlled accuracy. The machines support a range of materials such as stainless steel, titanium, nickel alloys, and cobalt chromium to manufacture and repair parts for clients in multiple industries, including aerospace, defense, nuclear, and oil & gas.
