INTRODUCING A NEW BREED OF HYBRIDS FROM PHILLIPS

Phillips has taken the innovative laser metal deposition technology of Meltio and integrated it with the world-renowned Haas CNC vertical machining centers, bringing the best value additive hybrid machines to the market! Rather than buying a separate metal 3D printer, we install additive capabilities directly to your existing or new Haas machining center. Benefit from both additive and subtractive technologies along with Phillips’ trusted service and expertise.

INTRODUCING A NEW BREED OF HYBRIDS FROM PHILLIPS

Phillips has combined Meltio’s innovative laser metal deposition technology with the well-known Haas CNC vertical machining centers, bringing the best value additive hybrid machines to the market! Rather than acquiring a separate 3D metal printer, you can integrate additive capabilities directly into your existing or new Haas machining center. This integration allows you to benefit from both additive and subtractive technologies, enhancing your manufacturing capabilities. You’ll also have access to Phillips’ trusted service and expertise to ensure a smooth implementation and ongoing support. 

This groundbreaking fusion of technologies underscores Phillips’ commitment to delivering the utmost value and excellence in the manufacturing industry.

FAQs

Our machines can use nearly any weldable metal wire forms except for reactive powders (aluminum, magnesium, and titanium, for example). This versatility is a key feature of Hybrid Additive Subtractive Manufacturing.

Tolerances for printed parts are based on the build strategy, geometry, and deposition rate. While we can achieve +/- .010” on features, most of the time it is faster to avoid using perimeter passes. We recommend overbuilding by .030,” ensuring there is material for post-process machining for the most accurate manufacturing. Machined parts will always be more accurate and have a better surface finish as opposed to a printed part.

An important aspect of Hybrid Additive Manufacturing is the consideration of the height parameters. Our parameter sets are developed for around .040” (1mm) layer height for solids and around .020” (.5mm) for single walls.

 

Typically to achieve the required tolerances, we recommend overbuilding during the additive process, followed by machining to achieve the desired surface finish and size. To remove fully printed parts from a build plate, a bandsaw or Wire EDM can be used. In some cases in the Subtractive and 3D printing process (Hybrid Additive manufacturing) heat treatment can also be required depending on the internal stress of the material, how much weld material was deposited, and the required hardness post-welding.

The two biggest considerations in the realm of Hybrid Additive Manufacturing are shielding gas and welding wire. While not a cost-driving factor, consumables such as the copper wire nozzle do have to be replaced periodically.

3D printing is technically a subset of Additive Manufacturing, an umbrella term that also includes some sculpting and welding machining. Additive Manufacturing consists of any process that increases the mass of a part. Processes like manual welding can be considered Additive Manufacturing, but not 3D printing. That is until you incorporate the welding process with a robot or CNC to deposit the material in a layer-by-layer process. When talking about 3D printing, the term Additive Manufacturing is quite often used synonymously.
