Developer of the exclusive Electron Beam Additive Manufacturing (EBAM) process, Sciaky Inc is introducing a new way to monitor a metal 3D print while it is being formed. The new process is a closed-loop control system called IRISS and is expected to reduce the post-inspection time and improve the final product with real time printing adjustments. Interlayer Real-time Imaging & Sensing System (IRISS) provides EBAM users consistent and reliable control over in-process part geometry, mechanical properties, microstructure construction, and metal chemistry for large-scale AM parts. The closed-loop control will use its advanced sensors to monitor the actual metal deposition process in real time and make instant adjustments to the printing parameters to compensate for any variations or disruptions that may occur during the build process.
