DMG MORI is focusing on strengthening its future technologies and is bundling production processes for metallic materials under one roof. DMG MORI already has extensive know-how in the field of laser deposition welding with powder nozzles through SAUER GmbH. By integrating REALIZER products, DMG MORI is gaining access to “Selective Laser Melting” (SLM). In this process, the material is applied in powder form in very thin layers and melted by laser. The two leading production technologies enable complex, metallic components to be produced from powder. For this purpose a wide variety of weldable materials up to and including multi-material applications can be made use of.
“This is the perfect complement to our high-tech machines in the field of Advanced Technologies. Selective laser melting in the powder bed opens up completely new areas of application for our customers,” says Christian Thönes, Chairman of the Executive Board of DMG MORI AKTIENGESELLSCHAFT.
As a pioneer of the powder bed process, REALIZER has consistently developed SLM technology, elevating it to the level of mass production and now has more than 20 years’ experience in its application. In future, development and assembly will take place in Borchen and at DMG MORI in Bielefeld.
