Via magnetic deflection and rapid scanning at high frequencies, the electron beam can be effectively directed at the powder bed and thus enable preheating temperatures significantly above the BDTT.
Regular stationary magnetic deflection measurements--to record the dynamics of the development in the entire national territory.
Colvin's history of Adirondack mapping in his 1882 survey report traced a century of confusion and disputes about boundaries and locations to the mistakes caused by magnetic deflection. He marveled that explorers and travelers of his day were more interested in the remote areas of the polar regions of darkest Africa than in the unexplored wilderness of "our own great State of New York, ...
