LASERTEC 3D hybrid: Finished part quality in one setup
DMG MORI successfully entered the market four years ago with machines in the LASERTEC 3D hybrid series, which combine laser deposition welding and subtractive machining. This concept is used both in the LASERTEC 65 3D hybrid with additional 5-axis milling and in the LASERTEC 4300 3D hybrid combining laser deposition welding and 6-axis turning/milling. Both machines are designed for manufacturing comparatively large parts such as complex turbine components.
Additive team player for the manufacturing industry
DMG MORI has now uniquely upgraded its portfolio with these LASERTEC 3D hybrid machines, developing a complete range for additive manufacturing. While the LASERTEC 65 3D has been designed for pure laser deposition welding of larger parts, the LASERTEC SLM series has expanded the product range for the powder bed method using selective laser melting. As additive team players, these two innovations combined with high-tech machines in the DMG MORI machining portfolio offer numerous options for full industrial processing.
LASERTEC SLM: Revolutionary powder machine
The LASERTEC SLM machines are the current highlight. In the powder bed method, a thin layer of powder is applied to a lowering platform. A continuous laser beam then melts the applied powder at the programmed positions in a cycle time of 10 μs.
Once all positions in one layer have been processed, the platform lowers according to the required layer thickness (between 20 and 100 μ). This process is repeated until the component has been fully built. When the completed workpiece is released from the powder bed, any excess powder falls through a mesh into a container for reuse.
