Our Machine do remove at a fraction of the cost of the others, easily and economically all your parts from their base-plate made by following processes :

 

AM : Additive Manufacturing

RP : Rapid Prototyping

Power Bed Fusion

SLS : Selective Laser Sintering

SLM: Slective Laser Melting

DMLS : Direct Metal Laser Sintering 

EBM : Electron Beam Melting (Laser Cusing)

Metal Binder Jetting

Additive manufacturing (AM) of metal parts is a game-changer.

The technology is seeing an explosive growth and a very fast acceptance across many industries.  
But this new technology comes also with some limitations and problems, specific and most in post processing.
Everybody is concentrated on making the parts, but many forget that when the parts are printed, then the most of problems appear.

 

When your metal part is done 3D printing,

you just pull it out of the machine and start using it, right?

 

Not even close!!

 

A metal additive manufacturing (AM) part is essentially “welded” to the build plate, and you will not be able to pull it off without some assistance. Even then, the AM part will need postprocessing before it is ready to use. 
We have solved now one big problem with our Novicut-M-AM-3D wire cutting machine:

We part the base plate from the workpieces in an optimal way, like never done before!

NOVICUT-M AM3D : Wire EDMs Designed for Metal 3D-Printed Part Cut Off

We offer a cutting process that is:

 

Stable and reliable

Fast cutting:

Handle ALL hard conductive materials

Reliable : based on an 30 years existing technology

with a minimum loss of material (0.18mm)

Precise : +- 0.005 mm

zero-force cutting: never damage a part

With low investment

At a ridiculous low cutting cost per hour

Easy to operate

Flexible : fit for most of the base plates of any brand

We reuse our wire continiously

Almost no wire breakage problem by powder inclusions

 

The EDM range is intended as an affordable option for removing metal 3D-printed parts from build plates.

The vast majority of metal printers in use today are based on powder bed fusion technology in which a layer of fine metal powder is spread across a machine bed. The selected regions of the powder layer are then fused to the layer beneath them and the process repeats layer by layer, until the entire part is built within the powder bed. By exception that the first layer is fused (welded) to the base plate and forms one piece with it! Later the parts have to be cut off from the base plate.

The melting is typically done with a high-power laser.

With that background, here is some industry insider insight: Common acronyms, including direct metal laser sintering (DMLS), selective laser melting (SLM), direct metal laser melting (DMLM), and laser cusing all refer to the same process.  Competing equipment suppliers use lasers and the same basic melting process, and the only difference is most of the time the marketing behind the name.

So if industry competitors use the same lasers and same technology, how do you compare them?

That’s where things get interesting. The major differences are how machines are designed and operated.

But all use a metal base plate !

 

Why the Build Plate or building platform Matters in 3D metal printing?

The build plate is arguably one of the most important parts of any 3D metal printer (SLM, DMLS,BMD,EBM, ...), as you can’t very well print without it. They come in many variations, depending of  the maker of the 3D metal printer, with different surfaces and materials made of,  different thermal characteristics, differnt dimensions and price tags.

In short, the build plate is a flat surface that printed objects will stick to during a print. Without this, your printer would need some sort of stasis field to hold a print in place while your printer fabricates objects in midair. As cool as that sounds, that sort of technology doesn’t exist yet (unfortunately), so we’re all stuck printing on metal

The primary function of a build plate is to provide a perfectly (or almost perfectly) flat surface for the bottom layer of your print. The second function is usually to provide an adhesive surface for the melted metal to form a “temporary” bond with during a print, or a surface onto which an adhesive can be applied. This "tempory" bond seems never to be "temporary" which becomes a real nightmare for every 3d metal printing company.

How to remove my parts from the base plate is the ultimate question, as the "tempory" bond is nothing else than that the building up base plate and the parts are welded together and became one.  

Here comes in our Novicut-M3D AM with a complete new concept build on a proven standard machine from which have been delivered thousend worldwide! Our modifications done on the machine in Europe to suit 100% for this Additive manufacturing segment of the industry, gives brilliant results which let every enduser save huge amounts of money, huge amounts of time and lower drastically the initial investment.

 

HIGH SPEED WIRE CUTTING MACHINES

The EDMs are equipped with a reusable Molybdenum wire feature, which quickly moves inexpensive wire from the source capstan, to the receiving capstan, and then back again so that the wire is continuously moving back and forth through the workpiece. The rapid speed of the wire (till 50 times faster than a normal wire cutting machine) creates its own flushing so high-pressure pumps are not required. The Molybdenum wire is very resistant to wire breaks, offering an advantage over the brass wire that is typically used in a wire EDM. The dielectric is a mixture of water and oil to reduce oxidation on the part surfaces.

Additive Manufactoring Changing The Economics Of Manufacturing

Digital manufacturing is rapidly changing the fundamentals of how products are developed, scaled and manufactured. By digitizing traditional manufacturing methods, including injection molding and CNC machining, and leveraging newer technologies, like 3-D printing, the industrial internet of things (IIoT) and artificial intelligence (AI), companies are optimizing their supply chains, reducing development cycles, increasing efficiencies, and driving down costs. The Fourth Industrial Revolution continues to gain traction and is completely changing the economics of manufacturing, for those willing to embrace the change that is.

Digital manufacturing is enabled by multiple manufacturing methods, but one area that has really grown has been industrial 3-D printing. Over the past decade, additive manufacturing technologies have really grown from hobbyist applications to industrial-grade equipment capable of producing engineering-grade, end-use components.

Additive manufacturing not only enables the creation of new products but is also influencing design. For example, if an engineer had complete design freedom for a plastic injention mould, how might he or she design it to accomplish the cooling step and reduce overall costs for the manufactured product? Redesigning the interior channels to cool the plastic more effectively might enable them to make a smaller mould and reduce process and material costs. They might also look to 3-D printing to consolidate and reduce the number of components and individual processes involved in their creation. Therefore, the real benefit of additive is really in the design freedom and assembly reduction, which unlocks tremendous opportunities in designing what previously was just un-manufacturable.
