Formnext 2019 / GF Machining Solutions Showcasing metal AM
At Formnext, GF Machining Solutions and 3D Systems are presenting a metal AM workflow to manufacturers.
Identifying a critical part to be produced with metal AM is only the beginning — and many manufacturers feel left alone to navigate the complexity of setting up a metal AM production unit for factory. Well aware that a project’s cost-effectiveness depends on the entire workflow from design to the final, quality-approved parts, GF Machining Solutions and 3D Systems (NYSE: DDD) bring their combined and technical know-how to the customer’s doorstep. At Formnext 2019, the two manufacturing technology powerhouses bring the metal AM factor to life with a streamlined workflow, including 3D printers, wire-cutting Electrical Discharge Machining (EDM) and high speed milling machine, advanced 3D-Xpert software, services and thoroughly tested materials, according to the company.
GF Machining Solutions and 3D Systems will take the stage at Formnext 2019 to demonstrate how they make it easy for manufacturers to integrate metal AM into their operations. At the same time, they maintain their part integrity, profit from a fast separation process and low running costs, and face the future with confidence that they have a scalable, automation-ready solution.
To illustrate the benefits of their improved metal AM workflow, both companies will highlight two intriguing metal AM parts: a spinal fusion cage for orthopedic surgery and a lightweight bracket used in the aerospace industry for satellite technology.
