The possibility of introduction of a new electron beam technology of adaptive manufacturing xBeam 3D Metal Printing into industry was studied. The ability to produce a net-shape blank, using xBeam 3D Metal Printing adaptive manufacturing is demonstrated, and economic advantages of the proposed technology application over the traditional methods of metal product manufacturing are substantiated. Ref. 16, Tabl. 1, Fig. 7.
