Two years ago, GEFERTEC presented the additive 3DMP process at the EMO for the first time. Meanwhile, this innovative 3D metal printing technology has become established as a new industry standard. The process is based on proven arc welding technology using wire as a source material. 3DMP is more cost efficient and faster than powder-based 3D printing – and wire for most standard raw materials is available at a much lower price. At this year’s EMO, GEFERTEC will be presenting a number of applications developed in cooperation with industry partners for different customers. Hall 9, Stand K03 is where the company will be showcasing examples from the aerospace, rail, natural gas and petroleum, toolmaking, and mining industries.
An arc405 made by EMAG will be used for a live metal printing demonstration at the trade show. Metal components measuring up to 0.06 m3 with a maximum mass of 200 kg can be produced on the 5-axis machine. The arc405 is the first result of a joint venture between GEFERTEC and the EMAG GROUP. As a minority shareholder, EMAG will be responsible in the future for mass production of the 3DMP machinery. This will enable GEFERTEC to meet growing market demands and ensure shorter delivery times.
EMAG will also be at the trade show (Hall 17, Stand C29) to demonstrate the wide range of applications using 3DMP manufactured components. The subsequent processing of printed components in the EMAG world will also be shown.
