Additive Manufacturing – It’s Only Truly Perfect with CAD/CAM
hyperMILL® Additive Manufacturing is a powerful solution for additive manufacturing. It allows you to perfectly, flexibly control both additive and subtractive processes.
Additive manufacturing opens up new opportunities for manufacturing. Using an innovative CAD/CAM solution is essential in order to take full advantage of this potential – and that’s where hyperMILL® comes in. Our innovative strategies let you perfectly, efficiently control processes in this manufacturing environment.
Two methods have become established in the field of additive manufacturing: Powder Bed Fusion (PBF) involves generating components on a powder bed through imprinting in layers. We are the ideal solution provider for this; our CAD/CAM software optimally integrates into the process chain of post-process printed parts.
The other method is Directed Energy Deposition (DED), during which the material is fed in as a powder or wire and melted onto the component using source of heat. hyperMILL® ADDITIVE Manufacturing actively controls the material application and thereby ensures optimal results.
The best of both worlds
Hybrid machining represents a special field of additive manufacturing. Many manufacturers are already integrating a laser machining head into their CNC machines. This combination of additive and subtractive processes is giving rise to entirely new areas of application. hyperMILL® incorporates strategies and reliable simulation of material application and removal – it’s the perfect solution for fully leveraging the potential of hybrid manufacturing.
This video shows the additive process of an aerospace nozzle made on a BeAM Magic 800 machine. It was programmed using hyperMILL® ADDITIVE Manufacturing which is a flexible CAM solution for 2D, 3D and 5-axis additive machining.
