At the recent Euromold show in Germany, DMG Mori produced the part seen in this video to demonstrate the capabilities of its new hybrid machine, which is capable of both CNC machining and additive manufacturing through laser metal deposition. This video illustrates various capabilities of the machine, including the ability to use CNC machining to achieve tight tolerances on the additive part as it is being built, as well as the freedom to use the machine’s five-axis motion to additively build the part’s features in various different directions throughout the cycle. Sent straight from Euromold, this video is captioned in German but still easy to follow.
