Hybrid Machine Tools

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.

Additive Precision Grinding

The additive hybrid millGrind machine from Elb-America combines grinding, milling and the option of laser deposition welding in a single machine, saving not only equipment costs, but also valuable setup changing and retooling time.

The Shape of Hybrid Machining

The SAUER LASERTEC 45 Shape from DMG MORI uses 3D laser ablation to make small integrated parts or achieve defined textures in injection molding tools, and their SAUER LASERTEC 65 3D hybrid machine combines laser deposition welding and 5-axis milling to make highly complex parts in one setup.

Groundbreaking Innovations in Manufacturing Technology

Mazak will demonstrate new high-level developments in full digital factory integration, smart technology and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) connectivity, and new machining and automation systems that prepare shops for the next industrial revolution.

Hybrid Multi-Tasking Technology

Ideal for small lot production of difficult-to-cut materials used in aerospace applications, the Integrex i-400AM hybrid multi-tasking machine from Mazak can easily generate/clad near-net-shape component features, then quickly complete them with high-precision finish machining operations.

Metal Laser Sintering/ High Speed Milling in One

The LUMEX Avance-25 metal laser sintering hybrid milling machine from MC Machinery Systems can fabricate dies and molds with very complex geometries in one piece with high accuracy, shortening lead time and reducing manufacturing costs.

Flying High: Aerospace Machine Tools

Competition can be brutal in the aerospace supply chain. To help your shop stay competitive on job bidding, these new machines can hit your bottom line by saving more time and labor, processing ever more complex parts quicker and more accurately – and doing it all with less of that extremely expensive material.
