Hybrid manufacturing

Combination of the geometric complexity
of Additive Manufacturing and the high precision of subtractive methods to speed up
and streamline the production process.

Benefit from
the combination of Additive Manufacturing
and CNC machining

The hybrid advantage is the combination
of additive manufacturing and subtractive
processes such as milling.
Hybrid manufacturing processes are fundamentally
on the same machine, but it is possible to combine
several production facilities together.

Design freedom

Design freedom

Create complex geometries,
that would be difficult
or impossible to produce using conventional manufacturing methods alone. Use hybrid manufacturing to design lightweight structures, higher performance components
and innovate product designs.

High precision

High precision

With hybrid production,
almost every surface can
be printed and machined
in the same reference
coordinate system,
allowing tighter tolerances.

Cost efficiency

Cost efficiency

During the production process
material is added to the parts
only where it is needed.
Excess material (powder)
can be recycled and reused.
This makes it possible to keep costs as low as possible.

Combination

The best of both worlds

Additive Manufacturing CNC milling Hybrid manufacturing
1 Additive Manufacturing

Additive Manufacturing

 

+ Material saving
+ Design freedom
+ Available materials
+ Complex parts production

– Lower production precision
– Lower surface quality

 

 

 

2 CNC milling

CNC milling

 

+ Repeatable
+ Accurate
+ Good surface quality
+ High productivity

– High material waste
– Higher costs for piece production

Hybrid manufacturing

 

Combining the advantages of CNC milling and Additive technologies.
The result are high-performance parts with engineering precision.

Main advantages

+ Engineering precision for complex parts
+ Versatility
+ Personalisation options
+ Guaranteed assemblability of parts in engineering assemblies

Ongoing quality control

The ZEISS GOM ATOS 5 industrial scanner doesn't miss a single detail

We measure manufacturing deviations throughout the production process
to ensure high engineering accuracy.
We use state-of-the-art equipment in our in-house ONE3D laboratory.

How it all works

The part's journey from design
to shipping

Product design Production by Additive technologies Post-processing Shipping to the customer
1 Product design

Product design

Using advanced 3D design software, we will create
a CAD model of your part.

We will perform the necessary tests and simulations
to ensure the required properties.

2 Production by Additive technologies

Production by Additive technologies

Then we select the ideal material and set the appropriate printing process parameters.

We achieve production accuracy as specified by ISO 2768.

3 Post-processing

Post-processing

After printing and cleaning the parts from the production powder, CNC machining comes next. We machine touch surfaces, threads, holes, and more to machine precision.

4 Shipping to the customer

Shipping to the customer

Once all production and post-production
operations are completed, the finished product
is ready to be sent to the customer and applied.

Case studies

Together, we create
new construction rules

Obzor – mounting blocks
Engineering

Costs half, weighs a tenth

Using the honeycomb structure and the additive technology SLS, we have reduced the cost of the mounting blocks and eased the work of the press operators.
