It combines the advantages of 3D printing complex metal components using the direct AM powder melting process in combination milling capabilities for precision finishing, doing so at an accessible price point for SMEs.

Moreover, the Orlas Creator hybrid goes beyond the capabilities of classical milling/machining, such that structures and surfaces that are not normally reachable (such as inside contours, undercuts or hidden cooling channels) can be milled effectively. The machine offers full laser power of 250 W at a spot of 40 nm; laser processing speeds of 3,500 mm/s and a build platform of 110 mm in diameter with a maximum Z-axis stroke of 100 mm.

Or Laser also unveiled its Industry 4.0 cloud manufacturing capabilities, which offers users a continuous, connected interface with machines and their data. With multiple functions, this cloud manufacturing service can: monitor machines in real time, as well as provide preventative maintenance reports that avoid downtime; provide monitoring and analysis of multiple systems from one location; and provide analytical insight for industrial applications, based on machine parameters and the materials being used.

Finally, the Orlas Cube can be utilszed with all laser sources and processing heads from OR Laser, which means that it can be deployed as welding system or as a compact cutting system for a multitude of possible applications, including powder cladding applications. The system is controlled by a modern 10.2-in touch display, while machining strategies can be generated directly with the system using the built-in Orlas Suite CAM software. Thanks to the closed machining case, the system fulfils all requirements for laser safety and can be used in a wide range of environmental conditions. The processing case is removable or can be moved to the back of the system for crane loading, which can accommodate the processing of large or palletised workpieces.
