Directed Energy Deposition (DED)

hyperMILL® ADDITIVE Manufacturing provides a flexible strategy for direct material deposition. The Directed Energy Deposition (DED) process involves directly, selectively applying material to a component or platform. Both laser-based powder nozzle machining heads and wire arc additive manufacturing (WAAM) can be controlled during this process.
When additive and subtractive manufacturing are combined in a single machine tool, this is referred to as a hybrid manufacturing process. hyperMILL
® enables users to perfectly program the cladding and the milling together. True-to-detail application and removal simulation as well as stock tracking between the individual machining steps guarantee the greatest possible process reliability.

The high deposition rates of the direct material application, combined with modern machining centers, enable a wide range of applications. Hybrid manufacturing is perfect for carrying out local, limited repairs on worn or damaged areas such as tooling or stamping die components or turbine blades and this within a short period of time. Moreover, composite metal structures can be manufacture by welding various materials or via heat treatment with a laser. This new technology is highly significant, particularly in the field of tool and mold making as well as in the aerospace industry.
hyperMILL® by OPEN MIND offers the perfect solution for securely, continuously controlling all processes, from additive material application through to machining.
