electron beam melting (EBM)

Electron Beam Melting (EBM) is a 3D printing technique for rapid prototyping

. In this process, individual powder layers are applied one after the other and fused together in a vacuum. In contrast to Selective Laser Melting (SLM), in electron beam melting the melting temperature is not generated by a high-power laser, but by an electron beam. According to the process, in electron beam melting, the 3D object is printed through individual layers one by one and fused together by a focused electron beam. To avoid oxygen inclusions, the 3D model is in a vacuum and is modeled by the approximately 1,000 °C hot electron beam, which is deflected electrostatically. The resolution

is between 50 µm and 100 µm.

In this way, 3D models of any geometry can be created. The process can also be used selectively and is then referred to as Selective Electron Beam Melting (SEBM).
