MC Machinery Systems’ Mitsubishi AZ600 wire-laser metal 3D printer

Date Published: May 13, 2023 / By: Admin

MC Machinery Systems has unveiled the Mitsubishi AZ600 wire-laser metal 3D printer, which uses commercially available welding wire as feedstock. The machine uses the same proprietary wire-feeding technology used in the manufacturer’s wire EDMs, and its laser oscillator and processing head prevent material oxidation.

The low-spatter process also helps keep the inside of the machine clean, and parts manufactured using other processes can be incorporated into the 3D printing process, making it effective for build-up welding. Applications include rapid prototyping, mold and die, one-offs, short runs, mass manufacturing, maintenance, repair, and tooling.
