Highlights

Deposition head

Unlike other 3D metal printers, the deposition head on the CHIRON Group's AM Cube can be changed during an active printing/ coating process. This allows different process requirements to be fulfilled: For example, one deposition head can be used to achieve a high-quality surface finish, while another can be used to achieve a high deposition volume. The automatic head change function enables these properties to be combined in a single workpiece. The AM Cube has three deposition heads in total and additionally allows the deposited material to be changed. Wire and powder can be deposited in different phases of the same manufacturing process.

Programming

Like CHIRON Group CNC machining centers, the AM Cube uses a conventional, Cartesian coordinate system. Operation and programming are both intuitive. The system is programmed either using a standardized DIN ISO code or, for complex components, using a CAD/CAM software tool. All aspects of the system can be controlled using tried-and-tested Siemens components, from hardware to the HMI through to programming of the AM Cube.

Easy NC-programming

  • Cartesian coordinate system
  • Siemens 840D sl Touchline as HMI with »Run my Robot Direct Control«
  • CAM-programming

Modular axis configuration

The system is designed as a platform and can be reconfigured from 4-axis operation to 5-axis operation with relatively little effort.

Operational safety

Because the AM Cube is equipped with a state-of-the-art sensor system and therefore fulfills all the relevant safety requirements, it does not need to be constantly manned. When working with highly reactive materials such as titanium, the entire system can be flooded with shielding gas to reduce oxidation. This protective atmosphere allows production to continue for multiple hours.

Process parameter documentation

DataLine is a SmartLine module that enables the process parameters to be visualized on the control system; the data is saved for documentation purposes.

Incredibly compact

With a footprint of just 2.7 x 2.7 m plus peripherals, the AM Cube takes up very little space.
