When it came time to choose a processing head for their 3D additive manufacturing system utilizing layered
metal deposition, ADDere, a division of Midwest Engineered Systems (MWES), selected Laser Mechanisms’ FiberSCAN™ HR.
The ADDere system employs a 3D laser-wire additive manufacturing process where high-deposition rates for large parts are essential. For this demanding application, FiberSCAN™ HR was the perfect choice due to its ability to handle high-power laser sources up to 30 kW and its rugged design optimized for 100% duty cycle process times.
“Historically, if you asked people what does Laser Mech® manufacture they would immediately say cutting and welding heads, but that perception is quickly changing,” said Laser Mechanisms’ President Mark Taggart. “Today, more and more integrators are turning to Laser Mech® for additive manufacturing solutions for their system designs,” added Taggart.
