Custom Hybrid Attachments Plates
New hybrid production possibility lowers the cost of special designs and reduces waiting times for attachment plates
DHM brings together conventional production of a standard component and custom enhancements as required by the customer: During hybrid manufacturing of attachment plates for JWIS roller chains with attachments, we use an additive process that offers you many benefits. These include unrestricted shaping for the development of new ranges of machines, low unit costs for short runs and fast delivery times for your custom-made products.
And another plus:
The new attachment plates are considerably lighter, despite their high strength, and thus improve the energy efficiency of your systems. A bonus for sustainability and the environment.
The DHM process involves taking a standard plate and supplementing it with a tailored plate design from the customer using an additive/generative process. This involves depositing layer upon layer of metal powder on an existing standard bent attachment plate until the required shape is achieved. The completed assembly can then also be finished and coated to give the required surface quality and corrosion resistance.
Another environmental consideration
Unlike other processes, such as mechanical machining, the additive process produces virtually no waste in the powder bed, as more than 97 % of the powder is re-used.
