Video: Update on Hybrid Manufacturing
Greg Hyatt of DMG MORI discusses hybrid manufacturing, the strategy that combines subtractive and additive processes.
Machine tool builder DMG MORI is one company advancing the “hybrid” manufacturing concept that combines additive and subtractive operations into one machine. In this video, Greg Hyatt, senior vice president and CTO, describes the company’s progress in bringing hybrid manufacturing into production. According to Dr. Hyatt, recent areas of growth include the incorporation of new subtractive processes such as grinding into hybrid systems, and an expanding portfolio of compatible materials.
This interview was filmed during the 2016 Additive Manufacturing Conference. The next edition of the conference takes place October 10-12, 2017. For more information, visit additiveconference.com.
A hybrid system combining metal 3D printing with machining gives the Marine Corps perhaps its most effective resource yet for obtaining needed hardware in the field. It also offers an extreme version of the experience a machine shop might have in adding metal AM to its capabilities.
Additive manufacturing provides new ways of making medical implants, but its impact is greater than this. How 3D printing is changing medical manufacturing and improving patient outcomes.
