Lincoln Electric, one of the leading companies in the welding industry, with its innovative welding machine Digiwave III; It undertakes all welding operations of the World's First 3D Printed Metal Bridge (MX3D) to be built on the Oudezijds Achterburgwal canal in Amsterdam. The bridge, which is built with 3D (three-dimensional) printing method using stainless steel material, is created in the form of 3D printing with Digiwave III welding machine. 3 Digiwave III welding machines are used in the construction of the bridge. Typical industrial robots used in the construction of the 3-meter steel bridge built by MX3D using 12D printing are equipped with purpose-built tools and software to control these robots is developed. Thanks to this approach, it is possible for 3D printing to produce a solid, complex and elegant metal structure. The “MX3D Bridge” project aims to showcase potential applications in multi-axis 3D printing technology.
The design and engineering steps of the bridge, which started to be designed in 2015, are revised in 2017 according to official permits and safety measures. After programming, fundraising and trial printing, the actual printing of the bridge begins. Later, pieces about one meter in length are printed to be put together. After the 3D printing of one third of the bridge is completed, the robot placed on the bridge continues from here. The Bridges; The metal, which accumulates and solidifies in layers, is aimed to appear in a design that opposes gravity. After seeing that the heads of the bridge are not completely parallel to each other in three-dimensional scans, it is decided that the bridge should be asymmetrical on the plan. The moving form shows that the technology can break out of traditional forms. The bridge to be built on one of Amsterdam's old canals connects the city's past with the technology of the future.
Digiwave III adds value to the construction of the MX3D bridge
We collaborate with various technical teams in the construction of the bridge designed by Joris Laarman Lab, and the welding processes of the bridge construction are signed by the Digiwave III welding machine, developed by Lincoln Electric's organization, SAF-FRO, which designs welding and cutting products, solutions and services. The entire bridge is created in 3D printing with a Digiwave III welding machine. 3 Digiwave welding machines are used in the construction of the bridge. Consisting of a three-phase inverter based on software-based switching technology, this machine can save up to 30% energy. In addition to its outstanding welding performance, this welding machine has new communication tools such as USB, Ethernet and even Wi-Fi, which provide accurate monitoring and tracking of welding work with upgradeable Linux software. DIGIWAVE III, which offers excellent results in welding processes, provides more than 200 synergic welding modes. Offering an excellent welding performance for a wide variety of materials, diameters, wire, gas combinations, this machine has 50 special synergic modes. Machine; It gives excellent results in MIG / MAG welding, welding of carbon steel / stainless steel materials and covered electrode welding. Digiwave III also adds value to the construction of the MX3D bridge.
