Takumi Partners with 3D-Hybrid Solutions


Takumi USA will showcase 3D-Hybrid’s Metal 3D Printing Tool at IMTS 2018. The result will be one of the largest and fastest Metal 3D Printers with full in-process machining capability, according to Karl F. Hranka, founder of 3D-Hybrid Solutions.


With Takumi’s large double-column machining center and 3D-Hybrid’s economical Wire-Arc Additive tool, we will be breaking new ground in the market for a high precision, lower cost metal 3D Hybrid machining center, said Hranka. 


Takumi USA:  The Takumi H12 double-column machining center is the perfect platform to accept the integration of the additive process, due to the large work envelope and high speed machining capabilities.


3D-Hybrid:  “Large scale Metal Additive Manufacturing applications will be realized with the technology on Takumi’s machine.” – Karl Hranka, Founder of 3D-Hybrid. The demonstration will be focused on matching with the machine’s strengths for producing very large high precision parts found in the tooling, mold and die industries.
Why Hybrid? Consolidating 3D-Hybrid’s Additive Manufacturing Tool with a CNC machine is filled with value propositions:

  • Single setup and in-process machining
  • Simplified management structure and reduced learning curve
  • Greatly reduced barrier to entry for Metal AM
  • Repair and Salvage Applications
  • Just-in-time Manufacturing, feeding wire to near net shape production
  • Reduced material costs on large parts
  • Multi-Material parts

Production metal 3D printed parts require post machining to be joined to mating parts. 3D-Hybrid embraces that and is focused on evolving and advancing directed energy deposition technologies as 3D-Tools for the CNC environment, said Hranka. The company offers three metal AM technologies for CNC machines: Wire-Arc Additive Manufacturing, Laser Metal Deposition and Cold Spray. Together these technologies can handle almost any metal AM application and alloy, said Hranka.
