About us

Who we are

“LILAS GmbH” is a research and development company. We find solutions to commercial, industrial, research and defense challenges. Our electron beam wirefeed 3D printing technology is ideal for aerospace applications.


“LILAS GmbH” has developed compact, simple and reliable modular additive manufacturing system based on electron beam and metal wire feedstock. The proprietary multiple heat sources technology provides controlled distribution of temperature in the melt zone and ensures optimal conditions for the optimal metallurgic process.


“LILAS” e-gun AM technology does not require complicated vacuum systems, there is no pollution of e-gun elements by vapors and there is no X-ray radiation - so the system does not require heavy protective shielding. The system is light, efficient and cost-effective. The shape of "LILAS" electron beam emitters is determined by the specifics of the future AM object to ensure efficient AM process.

I used to wonder how it comes about that the electron is negative. Negative-positive... these are perfectly symmetric in physics. There is no reason whatever to prefer one to the other. Then why is the electron negative? I thought about this for a long time and at last all I could think was “It won the fight!”!
