Coherent to unveil new additive manufacturing system at Formnext

At the upcoming Formnext show on 19-22 November in Frankfurt, Germany, Coherent will be unveiling its latest industrial metal AM system. Full details will be revealed at the company’s dedicated press conference, taking place on Tuesday 19 November at 10:45 am, in Hall 12.0, Booth C101.

The new AM platform will be on show alongside the full range of Coherent’s additive platforms, including the CREATOR, CREATOR Hybrid, EVO CUBE and ROBOLASER systems.

Coherent focuses on developing both laser powder bed fusion (L-PBF) and direct metal deposition (DMD) solutions. Both of these processes, which are fully vertically integrated within the company, are seeing strong growth across industrial sectors for a range of applications.

At Formnext, the DMD highlights on Coherent’s booth will be the EVO CUBE and the ROBOLASER. Both of these systems offer versatile manufacturing options. The ROBOLASER incorporates four process technologies into a single platform for welding, cutting, hardening, and DMD. The EVO CUBE platform is also a flexible tool for metal DMD and welding applications offering cost-effective, high quality laser processing of small and medium sized components.

Ludovico Camarda, General Manager Coherent | OR Laser, commented on the company’s presence at Formnext: ‘Formnext is the must-attend event for any company offering additive manufacturing processes for industry. We are excited to launch a new system at Formnext this year – one that will illustrate to the industry and visitors to the event how serious we are about metal AM – alongside our well-established machines. We are also looking forward to showcasing our application-specific solutions to a global audience.’
