Working on a new group feedstock materials for WAAM

Despite the difficult times of COVID-19 pandemic our project team is working almost as usual. They are working on developing a new group of materials as a feedstock for WAAM. These materials will have special chemical composition for the use in marine environment. This proces is shown below:
