Roush, a design and engineering service provider headquartered in Livonia, Michigan, USA, has added a Concept Laser Xline 2000R to expand its Additive Manufacturing capabilities. The Xline 2000R is the largest machine in Concept Laser’s range and Roush is the first service supplier in North America to install this model.

With a build envelope of 800 x 400 x 500 mm (160 l), the Xline 2000R enables the production of large-scale parts such as engine blocks. The machine has a dual laser system, each with an output 1000 W, as well as a rotating platform that allows two build modules to be used reciprocally.

Roush, which is a subsidiary of Roush Enterprises, Inc., stated that it is expanding its Additive Manufacturing capabilities with equipment to benefit multiple industries, including aerospace, automotive, defence, energy, entertainment, medical and consumer products.

Dean Massab, Executive Vice President of Business Development for Roush Enterprises, stated, “During the past year, Roush has invested millions of dollars in new Additive Manufacturing equipment to expand our reach into more industries. Investing in the latest Additive Manufacturing technology continues our commitment to innovative, high-performance solutions — from concept maturation and optimisation, all the way through to hardware integration and development.”

Roush has been providing Additive Manufacturing services to its customers for more than fifteen years. Its most recent investments include large-frame machines from Stratasys, equipment from EOS and added capabilities in design for additive and topology optimisation to its existing stereolithography, selective laser sintering and rapid prototyping services.

The company offers a number of services to support its AM capabilities, including 3D scanning, metallurgical testing and inspection, machining, fabrication and assembly and full-spectrum design engineering. Non-specific to AM, it also offers performance testing, product design and advanced engineering.

“Roush is a single-source product development supplier for customers,” stated Brandy Badami, Business Development Manager, Additive Manufacturing for Roush. “Our unique advantage in the Additive Manufacturing industry allows Roush to provide seamlessly integrated services like no one else can.”

Roush is International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) compliant and Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) registered for tanks and military vehicles, aircraft and associated equipment, military training equipment, auxiliary military equipment, spacecraft systems and associated equipment.
