JAM-5200EBM E-Beam Metal Additive Manufacturing System for 3D Printing

We are radically changing the world of 3D Printing. Together with JEOL's unique additive manufacturing technology, innovation in additive manufacturing is advancing at an unprecedented speed.
JEOL’s electron beam metal AM machine makes it possible to efficiently and cleanly produce lighter manufactured parts used in the aerospace and energy sectors. It increases output and shortens development time by high quality and high repeatability modeling, integration of multiple parts, and weight reduction.

JEOL Additive Manufacturing Technology

Using technology of the world's highest level performance electron microscope and electron beam lithography system for semiconductor manufacturing, JEOL has developed an "Electron Beam Metal AM Machine" with higher power, higher density and higher speed than other laser beam methods. It allows for cost savings and design freedom through increased productivity.


Long Life Cathode over 1,500 Hours and Helium-Free Electron Beam Metal AM Machine

Main Features

The JEOL Advantage for Additive Manufacturing

  • Emphasis on total system uptime, with a long-life cathode over 1,500 hours. The full cathode life and manufacturing quality are maintained in the system’s clean manufacturing environment.
  • A clean, helium-free environment and “e-shield” that eliminates smoke events during manufacturing. JEOL's unique powder dispersal prevention system avoids the scattering phenomenon.
  • Focus and spot shape of the electron beam are automatically corrected according to the irradiation position. This technology was developed inhouse, based on our market-leadership in electron beam lithography systems for semiconductor manufacturing.
  • The ability to remotely monitor conditions and manufacturing status.
  • Eco-friendly manufacturing. The system can build multiple parts in a single run.
  • Manufacturing capacity of 250mm (diameter) x 400mm (height).
  • JEOL USA’s existing extensive service network of over 180 field service engineers.

A 3D Printer Built on JEOL Expertise and Support

What makes the JEOL JAM-5200EBM stand out in this growing field is that it is backed by JEOL’s decades-long expertise in the development and production of advanced electron optics technology used for research and industrial applications.
JEOL is the market leader in electron microscopy instruments, already contributing to the 3D printing value stream from materials characterization and particle analysis to imaging and chemical analysis. Additionally, the JAM-5200EBM’s electron beam technology draws upon JEOL’s 50+ year experience in development and production of generations of mask writing and spot beam lithography tools with unique vacuum technology.

Long Life Cathode

"The Long Life Cathode, which lasts over 1,500 hours, can greatly reduce downtime for cathode replacement." The secret is JEOL's original vacuum technology, developed in the manufacturing of electron beam related equipment.

Helium-Free and powder dispersal prevention system "e-Shield"

No helium gas is needed to prevent scattering of powder. JEOL's unique powder dispersal prevention system avoids the scattering phenomenon. Thanks to the helium-free environment, not only can parts be manufactured in a clean space at a low-cost, but "the surface of the cathode is also less susceptible to damage, allowing the electron beam to remain stable." As a result, the manufacturing quality can be maintained until the end of the cathode’s lifetime.

Automatic Electron Beam Correction

The focus and spot shape of the electron beam are automatically corrected according to the irradiation position by the technology developed in our electron beam lithography system for semiconductor manufacturing.

Remote Monitoring System

The manufacturing status and the machine conditions can be checked from a remote location at any time. An alarm notification function is also available.

Realization of an eco-friendly and sustainable society

With JEOL’s “Electron Beam Metal AM Machine”, you can build more than one part in a single printing process. Almost no cutting is required, preventing materials from being wasted. Reusing metal powder is another possibility. Thus, JEOL is working on the realization of an eco-friendly and sustainable society.
