Diversified Machine Systems (Colorado Springs, CO, US) is featuring its new Hybrid Two3 line of hybrid 3-axis additive/subtractive machining centers as well as its latest, traditional 3- and 5-axis CNC machine centers. The Hybrid Two3 additive/subtractive production process is designed to integrate traditional milling in intervals between 3D-printed layers. The machine is said to increase efficiency, save time and use up to 90% less material than predecessor systems. The process operates in an enclosed space using conventional, non-hazardous, readily available materials and can be used for the production of tooling, prototypes, layups, fixtures, arrays and ready-to-use parts for aerospace, automotive, marine and other applications. The Hybrid Two3 features a work envelope that is 2 by 2 by 2 ft. The machines use a dual carriage, which includes an additive deposition head and a 3-axis, 12-HP, 24,000-rpm spindle. Booth S29.
