iLMD inert gas systems
Additive Manufacturing in inert gas environment
LUNOVU LMD systems can use and manufacture a variety of materials. In most cases, the shielding gas that is fed in via the powder nozzle is sufficient to keep the ambient air away from the melt pool. For certain materials, however, a completely air-free environment is necessary. For these cases, LUNOVU has developed the iLMD systems, in which the entire work area is permanently flooded with protective gas – in most cases argon. This way, extremely oxygen-sensitive materials such as titanium alloys are manufactured in the highest quality.
