GF Machining Solutions Demonstrates AM Production, EDM Cut-Off Solutions at AMUGexpo 2020
At the 2020 AMUGexpo, exhibitor and platinum sponsor GF Machining Solutions will demonstrate its high-throughput DMP Flex 350 metal 3D printer and its AgieCharmilles Cut AM 500 horizontal wire EDM March 22-26 at the Hilton Chicago.
At the 2020 AMUGexpo, exhibitor and platinum sponsor GF Machining Solutions will demonstrate its high-throughput DMP Flex 350 metal 3D printer and its new AgieCharmilles Cut AM 500 horizontal wire electrical discharge machining (EDM) in Booth P1, March 22-26 at the Hilton Chicago. These high-precision machines combine to create a complete automation-ready additive process that includes the ability to quickly and accurately separate parts from build plates without the use of a band saw.
The DMP Flex 350 enables efficient 24/7 production of very dense, pure metal parts from 11 ready-to-run challenging alloys, including thoroughly qualified Inconel, titanium, cobalt chrome, aluminum and steel. Improved gas flow technology produces more-uniform part quality throughout the build area. Short changeover times and streamlined 3DXpert all-in-one parametric software speed the process from 3D model to successful part printing, with reduced assembly steps for better manufacturing efficiency and maximum uptime through well-developed and tested print settings.
The DMP Flex 350 generates precise parts and guarantees excellent microstructure density, stable mechanical properties and consistent powder quality for high-quality parts. For the ultimate in flexibility, the DMP Flex 350 upgrades to the DMP Factory 350, with integrated powder management system, high-performance sieving and automated powder conveyance. The AgieCharmilles Cut AM 500 cuts AM parts that feature specific support structures and cavities with remaining AM powder.
Additive manufacturing can complement your subtractive manufacturing processes, establishing you as modern mold shop.
Indirect tooling methods use the RP process to generate a pattern from which tooling inserts are made. This article describes two such indirect tooling processes - cast resin and sprayed metal tooling.
