Development of High Speed Scanning System for the Fabrication of 3D Metal Parts Using Electron Beam Selective Melting Technology
In this article a method of high speed scanning in Electron Beam Selective Melting (EBSM) technology is presented. Based on the conventional point-to-point vector scanning method, a scanning method nominated profile vector scanning was developed in cooperation with the existing manufacturing system. A scanning speed up to 200m/s was realized using the improved system. 3D parts from 316L metal powder were fabricated using this scanning system and the quality of the fabricated parts was evaluated.
