ModuleWorks unleash the full potential of InssTek DMT

Wednesday, 15 January 2020 16:37 Company InssTek integrates the additive production computing core ModuleWorks into their DMT (Direct Metal Tooling) technology. The innovative ModuleWorks software enables InssTek to leverage the multi-axis feed capabilities of its DMT machines to provide a fully automated and cost-effective solution for concurrent 5-axis manufacturing and repair of complex parts. DMT with the integrated ModuWorks computing core, supplied as a plug-in Rhino module, automatically generates a toolpath that utilizes the machine's 5-axis motion capabilities to enable the production of parts with very complex geometries. This means that these parts, eg guide lamella rings, can be manufactured in a single continuous manufacturing step. Additive toolpaths are collision-free and can be optimized with user-defined parameters to reduce residual stress in the material.

On November 19, 2019, the world's largest 3D printing professional exhibition, FORMNEXT, was held in Frankfurt, Germany. Over 800 3D printing manufacturers from around the world participated in the exhibition, and more than 70 exhibitors   from China. In order to satisfy the hundreds of thousands of bear friends in China's understanding of the latest developmentof global 3D printing, Antarctic Bear, as the professional media for strategic cooperation of FORNNEXT2019, reports at the exhibition site. At the exhibition site, Antarctic Bear saw the booth of insstek, the largest metal 3D printing manufacturer in Korea. At the exhibition site, insstek showed its laser coating technology DMT technology, which was developed by INSTEK and was classified as passing the ASTM directional energy deposition technology standard Using 2 vision cameras, the machine analyzes and controls the height of the molten pool in real time.

Collaboration on simultaneous multi-axis additive technology

A single continuous production step is only one of the capabilities of the 5-axis machine. Moduleworks also aims to prevent printing errors and more. Insstek Inc. has integrated the Moduleworks additive manufacturing calculation core into its DMT (Direct Metal Tooling) technology. The Moduleworks software enables Insstek to use the multi-axis traversing capabilities of its DMT machines to provide a fully automated,cost-effective solution for simultaneous 5-axis additive manufacturing and repairing of complex parts. Delivered as a Rhino plugin, DMT with the integrated Moduleworks calculation core automatically generates a toolpath that uses the 5-axis motion capabilities of the machine to enable the production of parts with highly complex geometries. This means that these parts, e.g. guide vane rings, can be manufactured in a single, continuous production step. The additive toolpaths are collision-free and can be optimised via user-defined parameters to reduce residual stresses  in the material.

Manufacturers of 3D printer parts teamed up, targeting automobile market. Czech researchers and developers from companies, schools and universities engaged in the production of industrial parts from 3D printers have joined together to establish the Czech Technology Platform for Additive Production (ČTPAV). They want to be better positioned to reach major NASA customers and world automakers. More than fifty subjects from the Czech Republic established the platform in the Comtes FHT science and research park in Dobřany. ČTPAV is also supposed to make it easier for Czech companies to gain support for research, development and innovation at national and European level. ČTPAV is an organizational unit of the Mechatronics Cluster, an interest association based in Dobřany. The cluster brings together dozens of companies from engineering, electronics and computer science and currently focuses on robotic workplaces. "We would like to move technology support towards end-users so that additive manufacturing doesn't just remain in the academic world," said platform chairman Jan Džugan, director of R&D for Comtes FHT, where the 3D printing lab is. According to Džgan, ČTPAV is an opportunity for Czech industry to work with high added value. Moreover, all companies are now on the same starting line.

Meet the New generation of Additive Manufacturing

InssTek, Inc. which is global Metal 3D printer manufacturer held 1st Open House event on 29th October at InssTek head office in KOR. InssTek, Inc. introduced InssTek’s accumulated 3D metal printing technology as DED(Direct Energy Deposition) method and new product (MX-Lab) which is developed for research and development. This InssTek’s Open House event was designed to invite 80 people who related industries, academic people. InssTek’s major technologies are DMT technology (Direct Metal Tooling), multi optic module (Cartridge Type Optical Module), active powder splitter, CVM powder feeder system (Clogged Vibration method) and simultaneous 5-Axis AMCAM (World’s first simultaneous 5-Axis CAM software) The innovative technology of new generation “MX-Lab” model is a metal 3D printer that possible to mix up to six different metal powders at the same time to manufacture additive material. The one of the major feature of this new “MXLab” model is CVM (Clogged Vibration Method) powder system which is powder feeding rate range 0.1 ~10g/min (Based Ti) Se-ho Park who is vice-president said “Current 3D printer has been applied with mixtures of two materials, however “MX-Lab” new model has overcome this technology limitation.

Hyundai Wia developing a hybrid system with InssTek

The development of hybrid metal 3D printing system between Hyundai Wia and InssTek, Inc. (www.insstek.com) is introduced in Korean articles on 15 Mar. InssTek and Hyundai Wia kicked off to add DED (Directed Energy Deposition) and PBF (Powder Bed Fusion) technology to a tooling machine and this project will be completed by 2018. Hyundai Wia plans to integrate InssTek’s metal 3D printing technology to their conventional, subtractive metal cutting system which will reduce lead time significantly by switching two types of modules in one system. The project is divided into two phases: Combining I. DED and II. PBF technology for the hybrid system development, so the system will take advantage of both DED and PBF methods. In addition, Hyundai Wia will initiate medical application in artificial hip joint with the hybrid system and the company will also do GtM in global market by 2020.

InssTek debuts MX-Mini, first 'DED' desktop metal 3D printer

South Korean 3D printer manufacturer InssTek was one of many companies to make a big impact at additive manufacturing expo formnext 2016, only they managed to do so with a very small metal 3D printer, the MX-Mini. The company also claims that its latest release is the first ever desktop metal 3D printer to use Directed Energy Deposition (DED) technology. MX-Mini, was debuted at formnext 2016 in Frankfurt. Like InssTek’s other 3D printing systems, the MX-Mini is based on Directed Energy Deposition (DED) technology (which actually encompasses the DMT method). The main thing that sets the new 3D printer apart from its predecessors, however, is its size. That is, unlike InssTek’s fleet of large-scale metal 3D printers, the MX-Mini has been minimized in both size and weight so it can be used as a desktop 3D printer.
