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 to ship world’s largest metal DED Additive Manufactu…

South Korea’s InssTek has signed a US$2.3 million contract to ship one of its MX-Grande metal Additive Manufacturing system to a customer in Russia. With a working envelope of 4000 x 1000 x 1000 mm, the six-axis MX-Grande is said to be the largest Directed Energy Deposition (DED) type system in the world. The company also announced it has won a bid to supply a German university with an MX-450 system in a $1.2 million deal. InssTek produce a number of metal AM systems ranging from a compact desktop model to its flagship MX-Grande model incorporating a 5 kW Ytterbium fibre laser. The company was founded in 2001 and has developed its own patented Direct Metal Tooling (DMT) technology, classified as Directed Energy Deposition in the ASTM standard. The technology can be applied in electronics, automotive, medical, aerospace and defence industries.

InssTek wins orders to provide metal 3D printers to Europe

InssTek, Inc. has elbowed out its larger global rivals in winning orders to export their metal 3D printers to European countries. InssTek signed two separate contracts to provide giant metal 3D printers for precision lamination to Germany and Russia. The company signed a USD 2.3 million contract to provide the world’s largest metal 3D printer in a Russian University and a USD 1.2 million deal to export MX-450 for alloy development to a German university. The official said InssTek had a close bidding race with Franch metal 3D printer BeAM in Russia and US  metal 3D printer Optomec in Germany.
