The economies and production rates that are gained on metal parts produced by additive manufacturing processes can suffer when post-machining is required due to a sub-standard surface finish. That’s where these innovative machine tools come in: they combine additive and subtractive technologies to eliminate secondary operations. Here’s a closer look at how some of the newest systems do it.
The Vertex 55X-H from Mitsui Seiki is ideal for producing super hard materials used in parts and diesel engines, and repair of high-pressure turbine and compressor blades, low pressure blades, blisks/IBRs and impellers for aerospace, power generation, oil and gas applications.
The OPM250L Metal 3D Printer from Sodick can quickly print and mill a variety of high hardness tool steels with a 99.99 percent density.
