3D-Hybrid Introduces ATC Solution for Hybrid Manufacturing

IMTS 2018: The Automatic Tool Change (ATC) Solution for hybrid manufacturing equips a machine tool with a high-deposition wire arc 3D printing head.

3D-Hybrid is introducing its Automatic Tool Change (ATC) Solution for systematic 3D hybrid manufacturing. The high-deposition rate wire-arc tool debuts with Takumi USA’s H12 double-column machining center.  The hybridized machine offers X-, Y- and Z-axis travels of 53" × 37" × 23", or about 26 ft.3 of 3D printing and finish machining volume, with nearly 100 fpm travel speed.

At IMTS, 3D-Hybrid will demonstrate the tool with the Takumi H12, a high-speed, high-precision machining center with a rigid and thermally stable double-column design. The focus of the demonstrations will be on tooling, die and mold, and large-scale metal additive applications.
