Frankfurt, Germany, Nov 7 – Today marks a significant milestone in the world of manufacturing as we proudly introduce the Hybrid3, a cutting-edge multi-technology manufacturing platform that promises to reshape the industry.
Advanced Technology Integration:
The Hybrid3 seamlessly combines Liquid Metal Jetting (LMJ) and Laser Directed Energy Deposition (LDED) capabilities alongside CNC machining. This powerful synergy enables precision, speed, and material versatility, setting new standards for advanced manufacturing.
LMJ, with its high-resolution capabilities, unlocks the potential for creating intricate and fine-detailed components. It utilizes cost-effective Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) welding wire, with complete material utilization.
Swift and Efficient Production:
LDED, renowned for its high deposition rate capability, accelerates manufacturing, making it ideal for producing larger components or reducing lead times. Just like LMJ, LDED employs COTS welding wire and complete material utilization to drive cost efficiency.
The Hybrid3’s unique multi-material capability offers endless possibilities by integrating both LMJ and LDED heads within a single system. Complex components with varying materials and properties are now within reach.
The system’s subtractive process, primarily driven by CNC machining, plays a pivotal role in achieving the desired surface finish and tight tolerances for parts manufactured using additive processes. The Hybrid3 ensures that the final products meet and exceed the most stringent quality standards.
This unveiling marks a groundbreaking step forward in manufacturing technology. The Hybrid3 is poised to become the go-to solution for industries seeking customized, cost-efficient, and top-quality components.
