Electron beam Surfi-Sculpt
The electron beam is controlled by a programmable system comprising hardware and software developed at TWI. EB Surfi-Sculpt is currently under development for a range of industrial applications.
Laser beam Surfi-Sculpt
Although less mature, work is under way on a wide variety of materials employing high brightness laser beams, with rapid work piece movement or galvanometric mirror beam deflection
Currently, features of the order of tens of microns up to tens of millimetres in height can be made. The figure on the right shows several Surfi-Sculpt features made on the head of a pin. Further work on micro and macro processing using Surfi-Sculpt is underway as part of the TWI Core Research Programme (CRP)
