MULTI-LASER METAL DEPOSITION

Can be used for micro-additive manufacturing and cladding of thin base

material that is affected by heats

  • Stable supply of metal powder
  • Efficiently welds metal powder reduces effect on base material
  • Deviation of powder supply due to gravity is minimized even when AM head is tilted

All processes, from machining to 3D additive manufacturing, are incorporated in just one machine to reduce production lead time

Machining                                              Additive Manufacturing (cladding)                          Grinding

Gantry AM head

Gantry AM head drive is independent from milling spindle for large machining area.
