Hybrid Machine combines machining and additive manufacturing.

November 3, 2014

With additive capability, INTEGREX i-400AM HYBRID Multi-Tasking Machine enables manufacturers to generate/clad near-net-shape component features then complete them with finish machining operations. System melts metal powder using fiber laser heat then uses cladding heads to apply molten material layer by layer, each of which solidifies as desired shape grows. Machine provides -30/+210° B-axis movement in milling spindle, full C-axis contouring with turning spindle, and programmable NC tailstock. Read More
