As an innovation in Additive Manufacturing of complete 3D-parts up to Ø 500 mm, SAUER LASERTEC has now introduced a universal, hybrid CAD / CAM solution for the programming of the additive laser build-up process, as well as for the subtractive milling process. Both combined in only one software package. Thereby all special laser machining strategies have been fully integrated in the existing CAD / CAM module. This allows the flexible production of complete 3D parts by laser deposition welding with intermediate milling operations.
Hybrid CAD/CAM for additive and subtractive programming
|1) CAD/CAM data of the customer; seperation in additive and subtractive areas; slicing of the single workpiece sections||2) Generation of the NC-pathes for the laser process and milling in the post-processor; definition of the programmed sequence||3) 3D-simulation for collision protection with consideration of the integrated laser head|
|4) Laser Deposition Welding and Milling combined on the LASERTEC 65 3D (flexible changeover possible)||5) Finished workpiece ready for quality inspection|
