Formnext 2023 – Wayland to showcase fully commercialized Calibur3-Technology

Wayland Additive will again showcase its fully commercialized Calibur3 metal additive manufacturing (AM) system at this year’s Formnext exhibition in Frankfurt, Germany. Wayland Additive has been able to increase its production capacity and achieve more sales of Calibur3 over the past year by working directly with various OEMs and research organizations.

At booth B139 in Hall 12, Wayland will present the developments and applications of Calibur3 and NeuBeam technology to the public. Visitors will have the opportunity to learn about their own metallic AM applications and discuss them with the Wayland team.

Will Richardson, CEO at Wayland Additive, commented: “Formnext is an important event on our calendar, not least because it allows us to showcase the progress we have made in the last 12 months. The show is also valuable for attracting new business and forming new relationships and partnerships.”

Wayland’s approach to partnerships, specifically for material development and metal AM applications, is a defining principle of the company and its approach to business. Peter Hansford, Wayland’s CRO explains more on this: “The word is well and truly out about Calibur3 and the USP’s of NeuBeam technology, compared with traditional eBeam metal AM processes. The results off the machines speak for themselves and lots of companies and organisations have expressed interest. The thing is, though, we don’t just sell them the box.”

Wayland works with various organizations on specific projects for materials such as tungsten, vibenite, titanium and carbon steel. Some of these projects are located directly at the customer site, while others are located in the production suite at the Huddersfield headquarters. Calibur3’s modular design and user-friendly interface, as well as a de-powdering and recycling unit, are also notable.

He continued: “The capabilities of NeuBeam means that we can tackle a much broader spectrum of metal materials and develop them for Calibur3, and we can do this rapidly. We are partnering with a number of organisations and working on dedicated projects for Tungsten, Vibenite, Titanium and Carbon Steel applications, to name a few. Some of these projects are at the customers’ sites and some are at our Production Suite at our HQ in Huddersfield. This versatile approach is reaping hugely successful results. Some of the parts we are producing in these materials will be on-site at Formnext, but we are always keen to talk to more potential new partners, and Formnext is great for that.”

The main USP of the Calibur3 system is that it neutralizes the unstable nature of the eBeam process, a problem that has been completely solved by Wayland.

Richardson concluded: “We are working with companies from a wide range of industry sectors. Each one can see and has identified the inherent value of NeuBeam technology. We look forward to meeting more partners at this year’s Formnext as we continue to grow and expand.”
