Directed Energy Deposition (DED)

Directed Energy Deposition (DED) forms 3D objects by melting material as it is being deposited using focused thermal energy such as laser, electron beam or plasma arc. Both the energy source and the material feed nozzle are manipulated using a gantry system or robotic arm.
