Conference Abstract: Hybrid Directed Energy Deposition (DED) is a cutting-edge manufacturing process that combines additive and subtractive technologies in a single machine tool. This process enables the creation of complex parts and tools, consisting of multiple materials, with minimal design restrictions. Hybrid DED also allows for the fast repair of damaged components like molds and dies, reducing downtimes, waste, and cost, compared to acquiring new equipment. As a young technology, Hybrid DED is constantly evolving. In this presentation, we will provide an overview of the advantages of Hybrid DED over traditional manufacturing processes and discuss the latest developments in Hybrid DED technology, such as bimetallic applications, advanced process monitoring and Hybrid DED lathe machine tools. We will further demonstrate successful use cases for Hybrid DED repair applications.
