Hybrid Manufacturing Benefits – 5-Axis Possibilities

December 16, 2019

From 3 to 5-Axis in 30 Seconds on The Hybrid 2 Cubed At DMS we are committed to advancing metal-additive manufacturing. So we continue to push the envelope with our Hybrid additive/subtractive process, this time by adding 5-axis capabilities to our turn-key Hybrid 2 Cubed metal-additive machine. Our Hybrid 2 Cubed is a popular choice…

Hybrid Manufacturing Benefits – Component Reduction

November 18, 2019

Designing a manufactured part from the ground up for hybrid manufacturing achieves the greatest benefits. We applied this concept to a low volume 5 axis yoke that we produce. Casting is traditionally the preferred method for producing these types of parts, but the low-volume, casting is not feasible. It was redesigned to be manufactured with…

Hybrid Manufacturing Benefits – Existing Part Spotlight

August 20, 2019

Hybrid Manufacturing Part Spotlight: Hybrid Process (left) vs. Subtractive Process. (right) The redesign work to produce the part featured involves taking an existing design and making modifications suited for additive and hybrid processes. From this analysis, it was necessary to reduce the maximum build angle from 45º to 35º and reduce the thickness so that the…
