Laser wire direct energy deposition head.
Laser Mechanisms’ FiberWeld DH is a high power, laser wire direct energy deposition (DED) head for processing macro-scale industrial and aerospace components and tooling.
Engineered for high duty cycle production applications, FiberWeld DH features direct-cooled reflective optics, back reflection protection and wire feed. The head’s advanced optical design permits filler wire to be fed directly into the beam path – right into the center of the melt pool. This allows the deposition process to have total directional independence. In addition, FiberWeld DH’s easily accessible, protective cover glass extends the life of internal optics.
The largest additive manufacturing exposition in North America is now a mature industry trade show. Here is what the editors of Additive Manufacturing Media saw at this year’s Rapid + TCT.
Investing in 3D printing for rapid tooling brought product development time from months down to weeks for this moldmaker.
Disrupted supply chains are just one more effect of the coronavirus pandemic. These 3D printing service providers are ready to help fill production gaps with parts, tooling and prototypes.
