Mazak to Showcase Additive Innovations at RAPID + TCT

FLORENCE, Ky., April 22, 2019 – Mazak will feature several of its groundbreaking 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 in Detroit, MI. Visitors to booth 2165 will learn how machines with these innovative functions combine both additive and conventional subtractive capabilities to handle the most demanding, complex parts in single setups for complete part processing.

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.
