Acronyms and Abbreviations Used In this Report

This report identifies and quantifies the key trends and opportunities for hybrid manufacturing machines. It provides insights on how hybrid manufacturing is moving out of its established market in the aerospace industry and finding uses in other sectors including the automotive, oil & gas, medical and construction industries. The report also discusses which additive manufacturing technologies are being used in today’s hybrid machines including powder bed fusion (PBF), wire arc additive manufacturing (WAAM), directed energy deposition (DED), Cold Spray, and Ultrasonic Welding. In addition, this new SmarTech study examines how hybrid machines are growing in functionality including a move from specifically CNC functionality to including chemical and electrical capabilities on the hybrid platforms.

The report contains detailed ten-year forecasts for hybrid manufacturing markets. In these forecasts SmarTech include projections of install base and shipments (in volume and value terms) with breakouts by end-user market and type of AM technology. It also includes forecasts of the revenues from materials consumed by hybrid manufacturing installations. In addition, the report discusses the product/marketing strategies of the leading players in hybrid machine markets including: Diabase, Diversified Machine Systems, DMG MORI, ELB-Schliff, Fabrisonic, GE, Hermle, Hurco, Hybrid Manufacturing Technologies, Ibarmia, Materialise, Matsuura, Mazak, Mitsui Seiki, nScrypt, Okuma, Optomec, OR Laser/Coherent, Rosswag, Siemens, Sodick, Trumpf, and WFL Millturn Technologies.
