“So many of our customers are true innovators and I know this product is going to accelerate their prototyping process,” said Greg Volovic, president. “They will be able to turn their ideas into reality quickly and effi ciently without ever making a chip.”


Others, like Mitsui Seiki (Franklin Lakes, NJ), will be intro- ducing hybrid additive/subtractive machines. The company’s Vertex 55X-H combines a traditional CNC vertical machining center with a spindle-adapted laser powder feed nozzle. “The process is under full adaptive control as we are mak- ing the part, ensuring that as we’re moving back and forth between additive and subtractive, we are maintaining the in- tended surface or feature as it’s being produced,” said Robb Hudson, technology and business development manager. “In the very near future we will be able to add nozzles for localized heat treatment, cleaning the workpiece surface, drying the part of coolant residue, and even laser drilling and


cutting,” he added. “The possibilities are virtually endless.” —Kristen Golembiewski


Direct Metal 3D Printer Methods 3D Inc., a subsidiary of Methods Machine Tools Inc., has added the ProX 320 to its line of direct metal 3D printers from 3D Systems. It is designed for high-pre- cision, high-throughput direct metal printing and is optimized for critical applications requiring complex, chemically-pure titanium, stainless steel, or nickel superalloy parts. The ProX DMP 320 is well-suited to produc- tion manufacturing, with exchangeable modules that support rapid material change or replenishment. The unit offers a large 275 × 275 × 420-mm build volume and is designed to handle critical industrial applications in aerospace, automo- tive, and medical. The printer comes in two confi gurations, one optimized for titanium and one optimized for stainless


steel and nickel superalloys. Methods Machine Tools Inc.

Explore the potential of additive manufacturing


Renishaw’s additive manufacturing systems use powder bed fusion technology to produce fully dense complex metal parts direct from 3D CAD.


Also known as 3D printing, this technology is not constrained by traditional manufacturing design rules. Create complex geometries such as conformal cooling channels for


tooling inserts, reduce component weight by only placing material where it is needed, and consolidate multiple parts in one assembly. Additive manufacturing is also complementary to conventional machining technologies, and directly contributes to reduced lead times, tooling costs and


material waste.  No requirement for tooling.


 Increased design freedom—complex geometries and hidden features.


 Rapid design iterations right up to manufacture.
