The metal additive manufacturing industry continues to mature and consolidate with news that DMG MORI has acquired a controlling interest in REALIZER.

Germany’s DMG MORI Aktiengesellschaft (ETR:GIL) is a world leading manufacturer of CNC milling and hybrid (3D printing plus milling) machines. While REALIZER are the manufactures of selective laser melting (SLM) 3D printers for industrial applications, and are headquartered in Berlin.

% - Share - Capital - DMG - MORI

With 50.1% of the issued share capital, DMG MORI has become the majority shareholder of REALIZER, and are integrating SLM machinery into their production.

This is the perfect complement to our high-tech machines in the field of Advanced Technologies. Selective laser melting in the powder bed opens up completely new areas of application for our customers.

Companies - Share - Love - ALL - CAPS

While both companies share a mutual love of ALL CAPS, the 3D printing methods used vary in a number of ways. The LASERTEC 65 is DMG MORI’s hybrid AM machine that combines 3D printing with milling. For the additive part of the process, metal powder is blown into the focal point of a laser beam to create a melt pool and layer the metal. The process is called blown powder direct laser deposition (DLD).

After this, the LASERTEC 65 automatically switches to a milling tool that finishes of the rough edges of a part and add a desired finish.
