At the heart of our rapid production tooling technology is our HYBRID Additive Manufacturing (AM) machine, the first of its kind to be installed the UK.
Thanks to this investment we have the ability to compress plastic injection mould tool lead times by up to 50%, by combining the latest laser metal additive technology with conventional CNC machining in a single, integrated system. Complex parts can therefore be formed in a wide range of metals.
Marcel Gowers, our Additive Applications Engineering Manager, spoke to MTD CNC TV about the benefits our HYBRID Additive Manufacturing (AM) machine brings to our customers and how the new technology is expanding our capability. Click here to watch.
