THE POTENTIAL OF ADDITIVE
HOW IT WORKS
ADDITIVE DEFINEDAdditive Manufacturing – also known as 3D Printing –uses 3D design data to build components in layers of powdered materials (i.e., metals, plastics, and composites). Rather than removing material from a solid block, additive manufacturing “adds” layers of materials to build components. Additive Manufacturing goes by many names including 3D Printing, Multi-Jet Fusion, Selective Laser Sintering, Electron Beam Melting, Direct Metal Laser Sintering and more.

- The new washing rotor consists of 3 instead of 32 assembly parts, two of which are produced by Hettich using AMM
- Improved product functionality
- Tools are no longer required
- No more costly deburring
- Much faster assembly and lower logistics costs
- 43 per cent shorter cooling time (16 sec. instead of 28.5 sec.)
- 31 per cent shorter cycle time (26.5 sec. instead of 38.9 sec.)
- 43 per cent shorter production time for the injection mold (13 days instead of 23 days)
- Consistently high functionality
