Hybrid CNC machines incorporating both additive and subtractive processes have been commercially available and collecting headlines for about five years, but should companies use them? Hybrid Manufacturing Technologies, winner of the first International Additive Manufacturing Award for its laser cladding head and the developer of the Ambit PE-1 extrusion head, has been among the forefront of companies exploring the ambidexterity of machines that switch from adding material to removing it.

Dr. Jason B. Jones, president, will present lessons and specific application outcomes from commercial hybrid CNC machines during the 2018 Additive Manufacturing Conference taking place September 11-12 at IMTS 2018 in Chicago. The presentation will set up a framework for explaining the value proposition, maturation rate and outcomes of hybrid manufacturing for use by companies deciding whether or not to incorporate hybrid manufacturing technology into their facilities. Learn more on Tuesday, September 11, at 9:45 a.m.
