VMC incorporates AM technology
Mazak has released the Variaxis j-600AM (additive manufacturing) vertical machining centre, which is equipped with its Wire Arc-type metal deposition system.
This AM system incorporates a standard wire arc-welding head mounted on the machine’s headstock to deposit material layer by layer and grow near-net-shape 3-D forms.
The machine also has a 12,000-RPM, B-axis tilt spindle and C-axis indexing table. It is suitable for numerous applications, including the production and repair of aerospace parts, moulds and dies, and oil drilling components.
