To solve the problems with powder-based printers, Mitsubishi Electric is now launching the AZ600 -- the world's first (according to the company) wire-laser metal 3D printer that combines simultaneous 5-axis spatial control and digital additive-manufacturing technology to control processing conditions. This machine provides high-quality, high-precision 3D printing and contributes to manufacturing that considers its environmental impact by reducing energy consumption and waste.
The new machine contributes to manufacturing in a decarbonized era by reducing energy consumption, saving resources by shortening of processing time, and using highly efficient production methods such as "near-net-shape."
The AZ600 supports the build-up of repairs for the maintenance of specialist parts for automobiles, ships and aircraft. Additionally, a new contract printing service utilizing these printers will help the adoption of additive manufacturing by offering product design consultation, prototyping and general advice about the application of 3D metal printing.
