Additive Manufacturing

Introduction

Additive manufacturing is a production method that, in contrast to the traditional subtraction process, can directly process a 3D digital model into a physical component. This process is colloquially known as “3D-printing”. The 3D printing process is able to produce highly complex exteriors, light yet sturdy structures, conformed cooling designs with specific functions, and other features that are not possible with traditional methods. This brings about a myriad of new design possibilities in which the designer's ideas can be realized and the product development process accelerated.

Metal Powder Bed Fusion Machine

The selective laser melting process splits workpieces into workable layers with 3D digital models by using professional software. Then, multiple cycles of metal powder are deliverd, laser melted, and layered until the work is completed. The actual workpiece is removed and cleaned off of excess melted powder which can then be recycled. The metal powder bed fusion machine can greatly decrease the development time for any product development, allowing concepts to be realized rapidly.

Metal Powder Direct Energy Deposition and Subtractive Manufacturing Machine

Metal powder direct deposition processing transmits the metal powder via gas and uses powerful lasers to melt the metal onto the board for creating structures. The machine integrates a CNC multi-axis machining function and laser hardening function, thereby allowing for complex exterior designs, while also being used for repair, surface processing and other industrial applications.
