3D-Hybrid announces new revolutionary tools that will simplify metal additive manufacturing as printing tools for existing CNC machines. The tools lower the cost of metal AM, increase speed, and offer new capabilities like multi-material parts.
Just like using different cutting tools for different metals, 3D-Hybrid offers different printing tools for different applications. Through 3D-Hybrid’s experience on polymetallic alloy AM for pioneering aerospace and research applications, it has diversified its portfolio with directed energy methods based on Electrical, Optical, and Kinetic energy. The three technologies are emerging to be known as Wire-Arc Additive Manufacturing, Laser Metal Deposition, and Cold Spray. Each technology offers different characteristics, and 3D-Hybrid will guide you in finding the most cost-effective solution for your application.
The video demonstrates 3D-Hybrid’s Wire-Arc Tool, which utilizes dip-transfer technology and proprietary methods for hybrid manufacturing. The special Arc Tool offers the most economical AM approach and a more effective option to alloys that are reflective to laser wavelengths. The Laser Tool enables a wide variety of feedstock options from wire to blending powder materials for gradient and custom alloy generation. Lastly, the Cold Spray Tool is the most ideal solution for additive manufacturing of alloys with high thermal conductivity.
“Our commitment to solving complex manufacturing problems with advanced AM methods has led us to revolutionize and integrate AM technologies to any CNC machine” – Mr. Hranka, Founder of 3D-Hybrid.
