GF Machining Solutions says its AgieCharmilles AM S 290 Tooling system, which is based on EOS’s M290 metal laser sintering system, was created to extend the scope of solutions for mold and die manufacturing. With the additive manufacturing provided by the system, moldmakers can move thermal exchange closer to the surface of a mold, improving temperature homogeneity to reduce throughput times and increase part quality, the company says. The incorporation of AM also is said to lower energy consumption and enable programmers to improve part designs through conformal cooling and heating channels.

The system features controls and software designed to allow easy and quick integration with existing machine tools and measuring devices.

Three Cool Uses for Directed Energy Deposition

Most machining professionals don’t like to admit that they ever make mistakes, but every now and then wouldn’t it be nice to have an “eraser” to go back and repair a gouge or fix a nicked edge? Or maybe you took off a bit too much material on that last machining pass and you’d like to add it back? Well, directed energy deposition (DED) enables you to do that and more.
