Manufacturing Today - May/June 2017 - 30
or laser will introduce its groundbreaking additive manufacturing
hardware when it brings the orlas creator to rapid expo.
or laser's capabilities are vast,
and include printing crowns
for dental applications.
The cornerstone of two of the
most advanced additive manufacturing (AM) technologies for metal
materials is the quality and the performance of the industrial laser capability within the process.
It is from this angle that German
company O.R. Lasertechnologie
GmbH (OR LASER) has developed its
innovative and proprietary metal AM
platforms for industrial applications.
OR LASER is one of only two
companies worldwide that has commercialized both a directed energy
deposition (DED) metal AM process
- also called direct metal deposition (DMD) or 3-D laser cladding /
welding - and a direct powder bed
fusion (PBF) metal AM process. The
company's history with developing
and manufacturing advanced industrial laser equipment is extensive
and spans almost 20 years. During
which, OR LASER has successfully
progressed application development
across a wide range of sectors including automotive, aerospace, mechanical engineering, electrical, medical,
plastics, and tool- & mold-making for
organizations that include Siemens,
OR LASER / www.or-laser.com / HQ: Dieburg, Germany / Specialty: Laser technology / Ludovico Camarda, vice president of business development: "This is in fact a paradigm shift and a fundamental pillar of our belief and motivation."
