MHI showcase its new technologies at RAPID + TCT 2019

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Machine Tool Co., Ltd., a group company of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (MHI) based in Ritto, Shiga Prefecture, is set to begin overseas marketing of its 3D printer using its proprietary Directed Energy Deposition (DED) process. The aim is to enhance recognition and gain a foothold in the United States, which is driving the rapidly growing global market for 3D printing. MHI Machine Tool will attend RAPID + TCT 2019, held from May 20 23 in Detroit, to showcase its new technologies essential for the practical application of metal 3D printing, along with the monitoring feedback and local shielding functions.

This metal 3D printer was developed by MHI Machine Tool based on the results from a technology development project conducted by the Technology Research Association for Future Additive Manufacturing (TRAFAM), commissioned by the New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO).

The monitoring and feedback function optimizes the printing conditions automatically, eliminating the need for trial and error. The local shielding function allows for printing of materials such as titanium and aluminum, which are averse to oxidation, in an air environment without the use of a chamber.
