Mazak to Showcase Additive Innovations at RAPID + TCT

Mazak will feature several of its HYBRID Multi-Tasking technologies, including HOT WIRE AM (HWD) and LASER METAL DEPOSITION (AM) along with AUTO GEAR (AG) and Friction Stir Welding (FSW), at RAPID + TCT 2019 on May 20-23 in Detroit, MI. "Visitors will learn how machines with these innovative functions combine additive and conventional subtractive capabilities to handle the most demanding, complex parts in single setups for complete part processing," said a Mazak spokesperson.


HOT WIRE AM (HWD), also known as wire arc AM, uses an arc torch to melt metal wire directly onto workpieces, creating exceptionally precise sealing coatings, as well as near-net-shape part features. LASER METAL DEPOSITION (AM) uses the heat from one or more lasers to create perfect coatings and build intricate micromachined part features.


On Mazak’s HYBRID Multi-Tasking Machines with AUTO GEAR (AG), the package integrates powerful solutions for skiving, milling and hobbing of OD spur, spline and helical gears to make those processes more affordable than ever before. To combine joining capabilities with those of subtractive machining, Mazak’s Friction Stir Welding (FSW) from Mazak MegaStir uses highly precise levels of frictional heat and forging pressure to create full-penetration, defect-free welded joints with minimal heat-affected zones.


"Mazak’s HYBRID Multi-Tasking innovations create new levels of cost efficiency," the spokesperson added. "These highly productive combinations of additive, subtractive and joining processes can eliminate WIP and transform manufacturing operations through reduced lead times, improved part accuracy, shortened setup times and streamlined processes."
