FLEXIBLE

The most versatile platform available today for direct deposition additive manufacturing. Allows for easy processing of even the most complex part geometries.

RELIABLE

Unique and proven reliability, thanks to the experience and installations of the Prima Industrie Group’s Laser Next platform.

EFFICIENT

High efficiency (OEE) thanks to reduced downtime and maintenance. Fewer dedicated resources and simplified maintenance.

HIGH CAPACITY  

Very large working area combined with reduced floor area occupied

Laser Next 2141 with Direct Energy Deposition technology is based on a laser metal deposition process

The system can handle both large and small parts and is suitable for repairs, reworking and coating. 

The 5-axis platform is particularly suitable for all sectors that require movement flexibility and high precision.

Thanks to Prima Additive’s Direct Energy Deposition technology, the powder deposited on the component is melted where it is needed by a deposition head that moves along 3 to 5 axes simultaneously.

 

5-axis motion with CNC control and full CAM suite

5-axis CNC system with integrated multiple crash protection, easy access and loading position. The addition of a tilting rotary table increases the machine’s flexibility by providing the system with two additional axes for more complex applications. An integrated powder feeder with 1-4 hoppers (1.5 litres), Prima CNC control, and CAM software provide users with all the tools they need to set up the machine according to the requirements of the application.

 

Suitable for parts manufacturing and reworking in a wide range of materials

Taking advantage of the workspace and easy installation, Prima Additive's largest Direct Energy Deposition machine can be used for complex repairs and reworking. To facilitate the needs of different industries, the Prima Additive team supports customers at every stage until optimal process parameters are achieved and a repeatable result is guaranteed.

Laser

Laser Next 2141 DED is available with a 1000W (CF1000), 2000W (CF2000) or 3000W (CF3000) ytterbium fibre laser source. Convergent CF fibre lasers are the result of Prima Industrie Group's experience in laser technology and have been developed for industrial and research applications: it is a compact and efficient high-power laser, producing from 1000 up to 3000 watts respectively, with a wavelength of about 1070nm.

 

Rotary table

The rotary table is the 6th and 7th control axis for manufacturing of DED parts, repairing of critical components or rebuilding of damaged tools. The rotary axis (6th axis) provides continuous rotation of N x 360° clockwise or anti-clockwise on the vertical axis. The tilting axis (7th axis) provides rotation from -150° to + 150° on the vertical axis. The rotating tilt can support 300kg and has T-slots for fitting equipment.

  • Working volume: 4140 x 2100 x 1020 mm
  • Deposition rate: Max 50-70cm^3/h - typical 25-30cm^3/h (up to 100cm3/h with REAL_DED head)
  • Laser: Fibre 1-6kW

 

Materials

Prima Additive helps you choose the right material for each application

Prima Additive recommends and offers a wide range of metallic powders, tested to ensure product quality and repeatable mechanical properties. The process parameters were fine-tuned to the specifications and behaviour of the powders during printing, enabling excellent (re)production of the components. Thanks to its portfolio of services, Prima Additive can provide support to customers to evaluate and select the most suitable powder for their applications and needs.
