OR Laser says it has built a welding solution which can be equipped with a powder nozzle for additive manufacturing
Direct metal deposition (DMD) can be up to 250 to 330 per cent faster than manual laser cladding.
New Additive Manufacturing 2.0 (AM 2.0)-capable laser welding systems can now be equipped with a recently developed powder nozzle from OR Lasertechnologie that permits fully automatic layerwise buildup.
This solution holds enormous potential for tool and mold making applications at small and midsized companies. [Read more…] about OR Laser develops additive manufacturing which enables ‘fast modification of molds’
