Machinery manufacturer Sugino Corp, headquartered in Itasca, Illinois, USA, has released XtenDED, a new machine which combines powder-based metal Laser Metal Deposition (LMD) Additive Manufacturing, a form of Directed Energy Deposition (DED), and the tool magazine of a CNC machine.

The XtenDED features an AMBIT laser head developed by Hybrid Manufacturing Technologies. Together with the subtractive CNC capability, the new machine is said to enable increased in-process finishing of Additive Manufacturing parts with greater accuracy, higher deposition rates, better surface finish and improved productivity.

The machine is suitable for use with nickel-base superalloys (Inconel), cobalt-base superalloys, and steels (stainless to tool steels). It has a build size of 300 x 400 x 200 mm, and a typical build rate of 10-25 cm3/h.

As well as its Illinois headquarters, Sugino also features a Technical Center in Wixom, Michigan, and produces precision equipment for high-pressure cleaning, deburring, machining, drill & tapping, burnishing, waterjet cutting and more.
