Wire Arc Additive Manufacturing

This collection shows flat pieces of steel-titanium being fabricated in a small-scale cabinet for making test pieces by wire + arc additive manufacturing (WAAM). This process deposits layers of metal from a wire in a technique derived from welding. The concept was first described in 1927 but developments in robotic control are creating interest in its possible use in the manufacture for aircraft parts.
