DMG MORI’s Lasertec 65 hybrid manufacturing machine combines additive and subtractive processes to produce a complete part from powder. Unlike additive machines that use powder bed technology, the Lasertec 65 uses a powder spray technique that deposits material at 10× to 40× rates. It then uses conventional milling/turning processes to remove material from unwanted areas.
According to the company, the combination of these two processes on a single platform and the ability to execute them sequentially provides design engineers with increased freedom and flexibility.
