LASERTEC 65 3D – Additive Manufacturing in milling quality

dmg_lasertec653d_featured

The unique technology combination of laser deposition welding by means of powder nozzle and milling on the LASERTEC 65 3D is an innovative, generative manufacturing process which enables complex geometries and individualised components to be produced faster. In particular, large components up to 500 mm diameter can be manufactured quickly and efficiently with this hybrid solution. Flexible switching between laser machining and milling also enables component segments which are no longer accessible on the finished part to be machined directly.

1998 was a great year for technology. Apple launched the iMac, the first MP3 player hit store shelves, Game Boy was offered in color and a little-known search engine named Google hit the World Wide Web. Luckily gas was $1.06 per gallon in the United States, so at least you had a chance at affording some of these amazing new devices.

When SOLIDWORKS® 95 was introduced it revolutionized the way engineers and designers created products. One of the company’s original missions was to put easy-to-use, but powerful 3D CAD on every engineer’s desktop. At the time the idea was radical; 3D CAD was expensive and required specialized hardware. SOLIDWORKS cut the price from $40,000 to $4,000 and created a powerful program capable of running on a Windows® operating system. Fast forward a few decades and we know the approach was a great success.
