Mitsubishi Electric Corporation announced that on March 1 it will release two models of the “AZ600” wire-laser metal 3D printer that melts welding wire with a laser beam to create high-quality 3D structures. Digital additive-manufacturing technology combined with simultaneous 5-axis spatial control and coordinated control of machining conditions, a world’s first, delivers stable, high-quality 3D printing. Furthermore, it contributes to manufacturing in a decarbonized era by reducing energy consumption, saves resources by shortening of processing time and using highly efficient production methods, such as ‘near-net-shape’, and supports the build-up of repairs for the maintenance of specialized 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.
