DMG MORI, headquartered in Tokyo, Japan, is participating at this year’s RAPID + TCT, with its DMG MORI USA division showcasing an array of new advancements in its Additive Manufacturing technologies. Included in the show will be the LASERTEC 30 SLM US, which is designed and manufactured in the USA. Also on display will be the LASERTEC 12 SLM and a Blue Laser option for LASERTEC DED machines aimed at highly reflective materials. Scan3D, an integrated 3D scanning solution on hybrid DED machines will be introduced and, with an extended length up to 3 m, the LASERTEC 3000/ 3000 DED hybrid machine combines additive and subtractive processes.

Scan 3D enables manufacturers to integrate precise three-dimensional data into their workflows. Mounted in the machine spindle, the Scan3D scans the workpiece and creates a digital representation as an STL file. Furthermore, Scan3D is wireless and completely integrated into the machine tool magazine, just like any other tool, allowing automated tool changes.

Originally launched in 2021, the LASERTEC 3000 DED hybrid now offers an increase in the distance between spindles from 1500 mm to 3000 mm, allowing for the handling of larger parts. Designed to tackle the most demanding applications from aerospace to automotive, this machine offers multi material solutions in repair, coating, and production of parts with up to 3 kW laser power.

Blue Light Laser has also become a new option on DMG MORI’s LASERTEC DED hybrid machines enabling deposition of highly reflective materials such as copper and increasing productivity for all metals in energy deposition. At 450nm wavelength, applications range from space components to high-performance tooling components.

The LASERTEC 30 SLM US is Buy America Act compliant with over 60% of the components made in the US. With a build volume of 300 x 300 x 300 mm and a 1200 W programmable laser allowing for on-the-fly changes between 80 µm beam spot to 240 µm ring spot in seven laser modes, is designed to meet the rigorous demands of industries such as aerospace, tooling and medical.

The LASERTEC 12 SLM is an advanced machine designed to cater to industries requiring increased detail and accuracy, such as medical, dental, and fine jewellery manufacturing. The LASERTEC 12 SLM boasts an ultra-fine 35 µm laser focus diameter with a build volume of 125 x 125 x 200 mm and 200 W or 400 W laser. Furthermore, rePLUG powder modules are utilised, allowing for material change overs in an inert environment in under two hours. This approach maintains the quality of the powder, improves safety by minimising the amount of direct contact the operator has with the powder, and eliminates the need for external sieving equipment. The machine’s compact design, coupled with a user-friendly interface, allows for seamless integration into various manufacturing environments.

The DMG MORI USA booth is #2039 at RAPID + TCT.
