Midwest Engineered Systems, Waukesha, WI, offers the ADDere metal 3D printing system that consists of a 6-axis industrial robot combined with a 2-axis coordinated motion workpiece positioner. The laser wire additive system is capable of building components from a number of common or specialty metal-based materials such as titanium, stainless steel, Inconel, and most ferrous-based metals. The 4-Kw laser combined with a 500-amp hotwire welding package provides power for depositing material at a large scale. All of the system’s components are built on a portable frame, allowing it to be easily relocated. The system features a real-time closed-loop sensor system, a build part size up to 40 × 40 × 20", build part weight up to 440 pounds, deposition rate up to 10 lbs/hour, and power requirements of 100 KVA.
