CMS and Fraunhofer IWU developing 'CMS Kreator' hybrid thermoplastic 3D printing system

Italian machining specialist CMS has announced a new partnership with the Fraunhofer Institute for Machine Tools and Forming Technology (Fraunhofer IWU) through which they will jointly develop a hybrid system for 3D printing and machining thermoplastic composite parts. Within the additive manufacturing industry, it is becoming an increasingly common belief that 3D printing will only come to reach its full potential if it is used in combination with other manufacturing processes, such as machining and milling. This idea has led many companies and research groups to explore the potentials of hybrid manufacturing systems, which integrate both additive and subtractive […]
