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.
Simufact presented new versions of their established product lines for forming, welding and now also for additive simulation processes. Simufact launched the product novelties at this year’s EuroBLECH in Hanover. Besides the releases of the known product versions Simufact Forming for forming simulation and Simufact Welding for welding simulation, they also announced the launch of Simufact Additive, a groundbreaking new software solution for the simulation of metal additive manufacturing processes.
