3D Hybrid Solutions Inc, a provider of metal printing tools for any CNC machine announced today a joint venture with Multiax to offer the world’s largest metal 3D printer at RAPID + TCT on May 9th 2017.  The collaboration with Multiax, a large format 5 axis CNC machine tool builder offers a printable and machine-able space in excess of 500 cubic meters.

It will also be one of the fastest metal 3D printers with deposition rates beyond 20 pounds per hour.  The addition of a metal printing tool to a CNC machine embraces the inherent need of post machining, but also brings with it added values such as machined internal features, 5 axis printing, and the efficient approach of printing only what is necessary.

 “Hybrid manufacturing is the future for medium to large-scale metal additive manufacturing,” said Karl Hranka, founder, 3D Hybrid Solutions. “The infrastructure costs and paired value makes hybrid the obvious answer.”

Multiax and 3D Hybrid Solutions aim to target the large-scale metal additive manufacturing market as the only supplier.  In metal additive manufacturing, parts are built near net shape with only a small amount of material removal being required, allowing lighter duty CNC machines to meet the requirement.

3D Hybrid Solutions also makes its announcement that they are offering their Multi-Metal Printing Tool for nearly any CNC machine including 5 axis mills and lathes.  As leaders in applying the technology to past clients in the rocket, aerospace and machine industry they know the power in it. Their tool allows applications involving complex 5-axis, multi-metal designs to become a reality.  Printing in 5 axis eliminates the need for support structures and offers nearly unlimited freedom in design.

“Some of humanity’s greatest engineering feats are now happening because hybrid has the ability to economically furnish parts made with blends of dissimilar metals and composites. It’s material property freedom,” said Hranka.

3D Hybrid Solutions was founded to change the world through the development and application of the metal additive manufacturing technology by commercializing it into CNC machines, the perfect complement to Direct Energy Deposition.  3D Hybrid Solutions considers this technology another tool for the CNC machine but respects its differences for integration.  3D Hybrid Solutions offers their Metal Printing Tool for virtually any CNC machine as well as turn-key process development services.
