The productivity of machine tools and the demand for the accuracy of manufactured parts has significantly increased in past years. Manufacturers must increasingly machine materials with extremely hard cutting materials, with ever higher machining speeds and quality requirements.
Conventional, mechanical machining processes like grinding and eroding reach their limit here soon. Here, SAUER GmbH – a subsidiary of the DMG MORI Group – with its existing product portfolio and long-standing experience in this segment, provides solutions along the entire value-added chain.
For example, in the field of additive manufacturing, tools with inner bionic design can be built up by means of selective laser melting on the LASERTEC 30 SLM. With the high-precision structure in layer thicknesses between 20 and 100 µm, filigree and completely new constructions can be realised with this procedure.
