New “Hybrid” Additive/Subtractive Machining System at IMTS 2016 See it in action in Booth S-8519

FRANKLIN LAKES, NJ, Sep 9, 2016 --  Mitsui Seiki USA, Inc., one of the leading builders of machine tools in the “high precision” category, has developed new machining technology that successfully combines both an additive and subtractive process on one machine tool platform. Named the Vertex 55X-H, the new “hybrid” technology will be demonstrated in Mitsui Seiki’s IMTS 2016 Booth S-8519, September 12 – 17 in Chicago.

Robb Hudson, Technology & Business Development Manager, will be giving demonstrations of the new machine during IMTS in the company’s booth. He will also be giving a more formal presentation about the new technology during the IMTS Conference on Thursday, September 15 at 10:00 am in Room W193-A.

The basic concept of Mitsui Seiki’s new Vertex 55X-H combines a precision-built traditional CNC vertical machining center with a spindle-adapted laser DED (Direct Energy Deposition) / powder feed nozzle. Parts can be 3D printed from nothing or material can be added to existing parts.

The nozzle loads into the tool changer like any conventional tool and is changed automatically via the CNC program prompts, a milling/drilling tool replaces it and aspects of the workpiece can be machined conventionally – including internal features. For example, perhaps surface work needs to be machined before the next layer of material is added. Or, the workpiece can be printed to completion and then subsequent machining operations can be accomplished.
