JEOL Additive Manufacturing Technology
Using technology of the world's highest level performance electron microscope and electron beam lithography system for semiconductor manufacturing,
JEOL has developed an "Electron Beam Metal AM Machine" with higher power, higher density and higher speed than other laser beam methods.
It allows for cost savings and design freedom through increased productivity.
Long Life Cathode
"The Long Life Cathode, which lasts over 1,500 hours, can greatly reduce downtime for cathode replacement." The secret is JEOL's original vacuum technology, developed in the manufacturing of electron beam related equipment.
Helium-Free and powder dispersal prevention system
No helium gas is needed to prevent scattering of powder. JEOL's unique powder dispersal prevention system avoids the scattering phenomenon. Thanks to the helium-free environment, not only can parts be manufactured in a clean space at a low-cost, but "the surface of the cathode is also less susceptible to damage, allowing the electron beam to remain stable." As a result, the manufacturing quality can be maintained until the end of the cathode’s lifetime.
Automatic Electron Beam Correction
The focus and spot shape of the electron beam are automatically corrected according to the irradiation position by the technology developed in our electron beam lithography system for semiconductor manufacturing.
Remote Monitoring System
The manufacturing status and the machine conditions can be checked from a remote location at any time. An alarm notification function is also available.
Realization of an eco-friendly and sustainable society
With JEOL’s “Electron Beam Metal AM Machine”, you can build more than one part in a single printing process. Almost no cutting is required, preventing materials from being wasted.
Reusing metal powder is another possibility. Thus, JEOL is working on the realization of an eco-friendly and sustainable society.
