Synova launches 5-axis Laser Microjet precision machining system for ceramic-matrix composites

Categories: Tags:

provider of advanced laser cutting systems, announced Sept. 5 it is launching a new CNC machine with full 5-axis capability to process complex three-dimensional geometries. Applications targeted include the machining of industrial diamond employed in toolmaking as well as various composite materials used in aviation.

The LCS 305 laser system is said to offer accuracy, quality and speed with highly dynamic axes, water-cooled linear and torque motors, mineral casting machine bed and fully automatic offset calibration system.

According to Synova, the flexible Laser MicroJet (LMJ) system enables 3-D cutting and shaping of large and multi-tooth diamond tools resulting in smooth cutting surfaces and sharp edges for ultra-hard materials such as PCD, SCD, natural diamond or tungsten carbide. The machine’s two highly dynamic torque motor driven rotary axes also allow chamfering for K-land edges and single or multiple clearance angles. Tools reportedly can be exchanged quickly and with accuracy thanks to the HSK 63 tool holder.

The LCS 305 laser system with water jet guided laser technology is capable of precision machining parts made of ceramic-matrix composites (CMC, a composite made of SiC) while protecting the material from heat-related effects. The low weight and heat-resistant new material is used for hot section aero-engine components to increase aircraft efficiency.

“The issue of heat affected zones and micro-cracks is greatly alleviated when using Synova’s unique Laser MicroJet systems because of the inherent heat dissipation properties of the water jet,” says Dr Bernold Richerzhagen, Synova Founder and CEO. “The LMJ has already been successfully deployed for the drilling of holes and cutting of CMC shrouds and has proven the necessary precision and reliability required for such applications.”

The LMJ “wet laser” technology cools workpieces while washing away debris. The water jet maintains the laser’s focus creating a cylindrical laser beam that results in parallel walls and tight kerf widths.

The LCS 305 includes the SynovaCut 5.0 CAD/CAM software and SmartFactory functions such as an integrated laser power meter, positioning sensor and automatic jet angle correction. According to Synova, the machine can be incorporated into production as either a standalone system or into automated lines for operator-free high-volume production.

Categories: Tags:

This new, very large, complete 3D Hybrid machining center will be on display at IMTS in Chicago on Sept. 10-15th in Takumi USA‘s booth #422380. The hybridized machine boasts X,Y, and Z travels of 53”x 37”x 23”or about 26 cubic feet of printing and finish machining volume. With nearly 100 feet per minute travel speed, and 3D-Hybrid’s high deposition rate wire-arc tool, this machine will be one of the fastest 3D hybrid machining centers.

At IMTS, 3D-Hybrid will demonstrate the tool in accordance with the strengths of the Takumi H12, a high speed, high precision machining center with an extremely rigid and thermally stable double-column design. The focus of the demonstrations will be on tooling, die & mold industry, and also the large scale metal additive capability.

3D Hybrid Manufacturing is an industry recognized term for consolidating a 3D printing or additive manufacturing capability with subtractive or CNC machining capability. The paired value of the joined forces brings new capabilities, such as machined internal features and complete processing in one work offset. 3D Printing brings its inherent values such as increased freedom of complexity, lower costs in material and processing time, as well as novel materials. Hybrid manufacturing brings on an additional capability, repair and salvage of large parts. Large metal parts bring large capital costs. The ability to repair and fill in worn out surfaces with material stronger than the original, followed with final machining can save customers from downtime and extreme costs.

3D Hubs releases its quarterly report that shows real world data on which CNC materials and surface finishes are requested the most by engineers globally.

Every quarter 3D Hubs releases the Digital Manufacturing Trends; a report that summarizes all real-world data collected from a global network of 6,000 manufacturing services, who produce more than 200,000 parts are produced quarterly. It is the only report in the manufacturing industry that is based on hard numbers, providing the most extensive overview of the latest trends in technologies such as 3D printing, CNC machining and more.

Here’s some of the latest insights (from Q2/2018) regarding the most requested materials and surface finishes for CNC machining.

Q2 marks the halfway point of 2018. Spring is always a busy time for manufacturing and prototyping: engineers begin new projects after the end of the financial year and students are preparing their final year projects.

The Most Popular CNC Materials

Almost every material with sufficient hardness can be CNC machined. The most common examples include metals,such as aluminum and steel alloys, brass, or plastics (such as ABS, Delrin, Nylon etc).

In Q2, 19 new materials were introduced to 3D Hubs which had a big impact on the Top 10 most requested materials.

The most popular materials in Q2/2018. Other denotes a material not specified in the listed materials.
Aluminum 6061 is an aerospace grade material but also the most affordable material for CNC machining as is it easy-to-machine. In Q2, it was by far the most requested material but its market share was decreased marginally by 2.3 percent compared to Q1 as more material options became available on the platform. Even with this decrease, however, it still keeps the lion’s share with more than 50 percent of the machining being done with Al 6061.

Stainless Steel 304 is at #2, but saw the biggest drop in popularity in Q2, dropping from 11.6 percent in the previous quarter to 6.8 percent now. This is partly explained by the introduction of Stainless Steel 316 (at #9 with 2.6 percent), which has similar mechanical properties but higher corrosion and chemical resistance, making it more suitable for applications in harsh environments. The introduction of Mild Steel 1018 (at #4 with 5.0 percent) further impacted the popularity of SS 304, as it is a more economical option with similar mechanical properties.
