Additive Manufacturing

GF Machining Solutions now delivers design freedom to the mold industry, with Laser Additive Manufacturing making possible mold inserts with thermal exchange close to the surface for better surface quality and higher detail reproducibility.


Key Points

AM S 290 Tooling

Achieve fast, flexible, cost effective production of metal inserts directly from CAD data with the AgieCharmilles AM S 290 Tooling. As the benchmark for Laser Additive Manufacturing of high-quality metal inserts, this solution has enhanced quality management features and a build volume of 250 x 250 x 325 mm. This machine is based on the proven and successful EOS technology.
