Why does a manufacturer of subtractive cutting tools rely on metal 3D printing? 🤯

Is metal 3D printing a complement to CNC machining or a competition?

This video dispels some prejudices and is a great insight into a cutting tool made with the Markforged Metal X system.

Does the part withstand 10,000 rpm and the machining of aluminium?

Guhring UK has proven that the use of both technologies together gives the following benefits:

✅ Lighter weight tool
✅ Cheaper prototyping
✅ Lower costs for small series

Additive manufacturing and traditional machining probably go together better than most people would have expected.
