The rapid development and application of 3D printing technology provide great assistance and support for researchers to conduct project research. Electron beam 3D printing has advantages of high design freedom, high energy absorption and conversion efficiency, open source forming process, flexible and convenient selection of material system, low equipment investment and maintenance cost, as well as high printing efficiency, which can significantly shorten the development cycle and reduce R&D costs, and bring good engineering application effect, contributing to achieve new breakthrough in additive manufacturing of new material, smart material and intelligent equipment.
Titanium and Titanium alloy; Tungsten, Molybdenum, Tantalum, Niobium and other refractory metals; Titanium Aluminum alloy; Brittle and difficult processed materials; Copper and Copper alloy; Zirconium alloy; Nickel-base superalloy; Ceramics and metallic composites.
Lattice Structure：Metal lattice, as a periodic porous structure, can be further designed as hierarchical and gradient structures by changing the pore size of the structure. The 3D printing lattice structure can achieve multi-functional integrated design such as energy absorption, noise reduction, heat dissipation and biocompatibility as well as a perfect balance of manufacturing cost. For example,porous structure in medical implants can induce the growth of bone cells and increase the bonding strength between the implant and bone tissue.
