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.  Continue reading OR Laser develops additive manufacturing which enables ‘fast modification of molds’
