Metal 3D Printer using the powder DED method which supports modeling of large parts










Local shield

Using local shield gas that prevents air flowing into the melt pool, it makes possible to shape materials that dislike oxidation, such as titanium alloys, in the atmosphere.

Quality improvement of additive manufacturing

The feedback function stabilizes the state of the melt pool and improves the quality of additive manufacturing.

The monitoring function records the status of the melt pool and ensures quality traceability

Case Study

Modeling from near net shape

If it is premised on overlaying with DED, you can use a material with a near net shape (dimensions close to the final shape).

LAMDA illustration

・In the case of cutting, the material is taken and cut at the outermost shape of the product shape.
There is a lot of cutting margin, and the cutting time is especially long for difficult-to-cut materials. It also costs a lot of material costs.

・When using DED, use the "near net shape" material that minimizes the shaving margin, and build up to finish the product shape.
Delivery time can be shortened by modeling and cutting only the necessary parts. Material cost can be reduced by thinning.

Efficiency of high-mix low-volume production

If you need similar shape variations of parts, you can streamline their production.

LAMDA illustration

・In the case of a construction method in which a casting mold is manufactured according to the final shape, each mold is required even if only a part of the shape is different.
The delivery time of the material will be longer, and it will be difficult to handle the production of special shapes.

・When using DED, each flange part is modeled based on the basic shape. It is OK to prepare only the minimum necessary casting mold.
If the material has a simple shape, the delivery time can be shortened. At the same time, it becomes easier to handle variations in the shape of parts.
