LASERTEC 3D hybrid: Additive manufacturing using a powder nozzle and conventional machining in a single set-up
The LASERTEC 3D hybrid and LASERTEC 3D machines are available for users in the field of laser deposition welding with a powder nozzle. The first combine additive manufacturing and conventional machining in a single set-up. The LASERTEC 65 3D hybrid is designed for the 5-axis simultaneous machining of parts measuring up to ø 19.7 x 15.7 inches. The LASERTEC 4300 3D hybrid enables 6-sided turn & mill operations for workpieces with sizes up to ø 26 x 59 inches. Designed for the complete machining of demanding geometries, the LASERTEC 3D hybrid machines enable flexible changeover between laser deposition welding using a powder nozzle and mill or turn operations.
LASERTEC 65 3D: The right addition to the machines already installed on the shop floor
A second process chain based on the powder nozzle includes the compact LASERTEC 65 3D for 5-axis laser deposition welding and a machining center for final finishing of the additively manufactured components. This makes the LASERTEC 65 3D the ideal addition to the machines already installed on the shop floor, a combination that ensures optimum utilization of production capacity. With travel paths of 29 x 25.6 x 22 inches, the work area of the LASERTEC 65 3D is around 40 percent larger than the hybrid version and its footprint is about 45 percent smaller.
DMG MORI completes the process chains in laser deposition welding with NC programming in hybrid CAD / CAM with SIEMENS NX, technology parameters from a material database plus process monitoring and documentation. “Different materials can also be combined in one build process in the two process chains with the powder nozzle, a capability that can give parts special properties,” adds Patrick Diederich.
