Best quality wire alloys for a revolutionary technology for perfect Wire Arc Additive Manufacturing

With the manufacturing of wires which are tailor-made to its specific purpose, voestalpine Böhler Welding is creating the basis for innovative Wire Arc Additive Manufacturing. The metallurgical and application knowhow of its materials specialists makes the company a central element in this technological revolution.


Key benefits of the Wire Arc Additive Manufacturing Process

  • Wide range of deposition rates (low to high)
  • Near-Net shape and therefore reduced material loss
  • Conventional machining time reduced to minimum
  • Reduction of lead times
  • High structural integrity
  • Low to medium complexity components


Metallurgical features of Böhler Welding 3D-printing wires:

  • Made for low cooling rates and high heat input
  • Accepts multiple hardening/tempering cycles by multiple layers
  • Optimised for post print heat treatment where necessary
  • Tailor-made metallurgy for complex materials like duplex steels

Process features of Böhler Welding 3D-printing wires:

  • Made for max. process stability for automated processes
  • Drum and spool weights can be adopted to the weight of parts
  • Extended quality control to ensure constant arc and feeding
  • Optimized surface technology for long arc cycles
    Liners stay clean, contact tips last longer
