Japanese company JEOL Ltd. has announced the release of Electron Beam Metal AM Machine JAM-5200EBM. 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. Moreover, thanks to the long life cathode and helium-free, cost reduction and mass production of parts of high quality and reproducibility are achieved. Use in the fields that require a high level of quality such as aerospace, industrial power, and medical is expected.
– The World’s Longest Life Cathode of 1,500 hours for improved productivity
– No need for helium gas maintains manufacturing quality until the end of the cathode’s lifetime
No helium gas is needed to prevent scattering of powder. JEOL’s unique powder dispersal prevention system ‘e-Shield’ avoids the scattering phenomenon. Due 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 Adjustment Realizes High Quality and Reproducibility
The technology developed in the electron microscope and electron beam lithography system for semiconductor manufacturing has enabled JOEL to automatically adjust the focus and the distortion of the electron beam allowing both a high quality and high reproducibility in manufacturing to be achieved.
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.
