HIGH SPEED WIRE CUTTING VERSUS SAWING

Are You still using a Sawing machine to remove the base plate from a 3d metal printed part?

Disadvantages of a sawing machine to remove the base plate.

  • Dangerous machine for getting wounded at your hands.
  • Big sawing force can deform the part
  • Loss of at least 2 mm of material
  • Big "left overs" on the base plate
  • Low precision of cutting
  • No contouring, only straight cut possible!
  • No  3d cut possible.
  • High risk of breaking of fragile parts
  • Need special and expensive saw blades for hard materials and special alloys

And does this looks like your result?

Luckily there are no fingers cut! The result is not good: NO precision! BIG left-overs on the base plate - huge losses of expensive building powder

Are your parts too fragile and collapses under the cutting force from your special sawing machine?

NOT with our solution.

Hours of printing, loads of expensive material, days of programming and then your sawing machine destroy it all with the cutting force applied.

We deliver a solution with a minimal loss of 0.2mm and perfect programmable by 0.01 mm precision. 

 

NEVER AGAIN BROKEN PARTS BY SAWING WITH OUR SOLUTION!

HIGH SPEED WIRE CUTTING VERSUS SAWING

How much time cost one millimeter 3d metal printed?

Saving time by reducing the cutting-off width and the positioning precision of cutting

Additive manufacturing of 3d metal parts evolves, but everybody put themselves the question: How fast is a 3d metal printer printing?

Based on the parts printed by the very latest RenAM 500Q - 4 laser additive manufacturing system by Renishaw exposed at the Latest formnext, it is very simple to calculate the cost or time of every milimeter printed.

On Formnext Renishaw exposed the difference in speed and output of one laserbeam printing, two laser beam printing and Four laser beam printing, which they are able to do with their new machine. 

Total building time for the 3 parts is identical 19 hours, but the result is dramatical different:

1 laser Beam : 584 layers of 60µm in 19 hours = 35,04 mm total build height
2 laser Beam : 1019 layers of 60µm in 19 hours = 61,14 mm total build height
4 laser Beam : 2022 layers of 60µm in 19 hours = 133,33 mm total build height

AVERAGE Building time for 1 layer

1 laser Beam : 1 layer of 60µm in 117 SEC (1,96 min)
2 laser Beam : 1 layer of 60µm in 67 SEC (1,12 min)
4 laser Beam : 1 layer of 60µm in 31 SEC (0,52 min)

 

AVERAGE Building time for 1 mm of 3d printed material

1 laser Beam : 1 mm of 60µm layers in 1.950 SEC (32,51 min)

2 laser Beam : 1 mm of 60µm layers in 1.117 SEC (18,62 min)

4 laser Beam : 1 mm of 60µm layers in 517 SEC (8,62 min)

Pictures are taken from exhibition Formnext and used only as base for calculation.

Customer Sample : 3x times saving

By reducing the cutting width from 3,2 mm to 0,3 mm the savings are huge.

How much time must your printer work for this 3,2 mm extra printing used for cutting off?

Check how you save big with our NovicutM-AM3D compared to a sawing machine!

Customer Sample:

By reducing the cutting width from 3,2 mm to 0,3 mm you save huge :

Based on given information and calculation up we can calculate :

AVERAGE Building time for 1 layer

1 laser Beam machine : 1 layer of 60µm in 117 SEC (1,96 min)
2 laser Beam machine: 1 layer of 60µm in 67 SEC (1,12 min)
4 laser Beam machine: 1 layer of 60µm in 31 SEC (0,52 min)

 

 TIME REDUCTION by NOT printing the 2,9 mm (3,2 - 0,3mm) :

 

1 laser Beam : 2,9 mm of 60µm layers in 5.655 SEC (94,25 min)

2 laser Beam : 2,9 mm of 60µm layers in 3.239 SEC (53,99 min)

4 laser Beam : 2,9 mm of 60µm layers in 1.499 SEC (24,99 min)

 

This creates extra available time for your expensive 3D metal printing machine and you generate like this more output for your 3D metal printing machine.

Beside that, your parts are also much faster made.

And you do not consume this metal powder too.

It's a TRIPLE saving!

MONEY IN THE POCKET !!

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.
