Title: METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR WIRED ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING
Abstract:
The invention relates to a method and an apparatus for the wired additive manufacturing of shaped bodies (5) built up in layers. The additive construction of the shaped body (5) takes place by means of a plurality of individual wires (4) that are arranged alongside one another in a substantially parallel manner and form a wire pack, said individual wires (4) being conveyed into the region of a welding zone each with an individual wire infeed and being pressed against the surface (7) of the shaped body in an uninterrupted manner under mechanical preloading. Each particular shaped-body layer (6) is formed in the welding zone with the wire materials being melted and deposited. The method and the apparatus for carrying out the method ensure high process stability of the wired additive shaped-body production together with high efficiency.
