ADDiTEC, an innovator in advanced metal additive manufacturing, has unveiled two revolutionary manufacturing platforms, AMDroid and Hybrid3, that are anticipated to redefine standards of precision, efficiency, and versatility in the sector.

AMDroid laser-wire DED deployable robotic system

AMDroid is a turn-key deployable system uniquely designed for a wide range of materials, including titanium.  The system is optimized to achieve a high deposition rate – setting a new standard for mass production and manufacturing excellence.

ADDiTEC launches two new additive manufacturing platforms - the AMDroid laser-wire DED robotic system and Hybrid3 multi-technology platform.

The portable AMDroid makes forward-deployable, on-demand manufacturing a reality – providing multi-axis and large-scale reactive and non-reactive part printing capability using a robotic architecture within a welded enclosure. AMDroid’s architecture enables hassle-free installation and the commencement of printing within a single day – transforming the way companies approach rapid prototyping and component production. ADDiTEC’s state-of-the-art software makes 3D printing more accessible and efficient for both experienced users and newcomers to the field.

ADDiTEC has collaborated with major industrial robot brands to provide flexibility in robot selection – enabling industry leaders to maximize their production capabilities in additive manufacturing using their preferred robotic solution.

The AMDroid will begin shipping in Q1/2024.

Hybrid3 – a multi-technology manufacturing platform

ADDiTEC launches two new additive manufacturing platforms - the AMDroid laser-wire DED robotic system and Hybrid3 multi-technology platform.

ADDiTEC’s Hybrid3 seamlessly combines Liquid Metal Jetting (LMJ) and Laser Directed Energy Deposition (LDED) capabilities alongside CNC machining. This powerful synergy enables precision, speed, and material versatility, setting new standards for advanced manufacturing.

LMJ, with its high-resolution capabilities, unlocks the potential for creating intricate and fine-detailed components. It utilizes cost-effective Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) welding wire, with complete material utilization, whereas LDED, renowned for its high deposition rate capability, accelerates manufacturing – making it ideal for producing larger components or reducing lead times. Just like LMJ, LDED employs COTS welding wire and complete material utilization to drive cost efficiency.

The Hybrid3’s unique multi-material capability offers endless possibilities by integrating both LMJ and LDED heads within a single system. Complex components with varying materials and properties are now within reach.

The system’s subtractive process, primarily driven by CNC machining, plays a pivotal role in achieving the desired surface finish and tight tolerances for parts manufactured using additive processes. The Hybrid3 ensures that the final products meet and exceed the most stringent quality standards.
