ADD+PROCESS incorporates a technology in which metal powder is injected into the focused beam of a high-power laser so its surface is melted into a pool of base material, powder delivered into this same spot is absorbed in the melt pool generating a deposit while the LMD moves around the working area creating the required shape layer by layer.
NOTHING CHANGES, EVERYTHING CHANGES
The combination of this technology is possible thanks to a LMD head attached to the tilting head of our 5axis machines which provides the same range of movements of a milling tool but working in the opposite way: adding material instead of removing it.
This technology creates extremely strong unions with properties similar or even superior to the base material. Different materials can be combined and the possibility to change the size of the material deposition spot allows creating very complex geometries.
MULTIPLY THE PRODUCTION CAPACITY OF YOUR MACHINE
By integrating ADD+PROCESS technology we join additive manufacturing capacity with 5axis machining capacity, combining different processes, operations and materials in one final workpiece thanks to a simple change of heads.
This system follows a tool path layer by layer to create a new shape that can later be finished following traditional machining methods.
New shapes over a previously manufactured work piece combining different materials.
Cladding of specific areas to improve their mechanical properties and life cycle.
Repair damaged parts by machining down the worn surface and building it back up by depositing cladding material.
