A system with a laser, a mobile metal deposition head, and a wire feeder or metal powder nozzle is the primary tool used in laser additive manufacturing machines.
The 3D printing-compatible metal deposition head is moved across a construction platform as it adds metal powder or filament by melting it on the surface and heating it with the laser beam.
The next metal layer can be added after the material has cooled, adding up to create a three-dimensional component that follows the building plan.
The laser additive manufacturing method uses a similar technical foundation as the cladding process. The key distinction is that three-dimensional forms are formed rather than two-dimensional layers.
Other options that go well beyond the interaction between additive powder coating and subtractive machining are also provided by the different additive manufacturing uses for Laserline’s diode lasers.
For instance, a twelve-axis milling machine can incorporate lasers for powder coating, welding, and hardening. Corresponding optics are used in conjunction with the laser and powder nozzle for this purpose, with the ability to switch back and forth between them based on the processing operation.
As a result, laser additive manufacturing machines enable the completion of intricate production procedures based on a single beam source.
The Global Laser additive manufacturing machine market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
The NXG XII 600, a new laser additive manufacturing machine from SLM Solutions Group AG, Lübeck, Germany, has been formally introduced and is now open for business. A 600 x 600 x 600 millimetre square build envelope is provided by the Laser Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-LB)
Additive Manufacturing machine, which is outfitted with twelve 1 kW lasers. The NXG XII 600 is the fastest AM machine on the market providing build speeds 20 times faster than those achievable with a single laser and outfitted with sophisticated features like a zoom function to ensure maximum productivity and dependability.
It is intended to be used for both building large parts and serial production for high-volume applications.
