Hybrid piston head

One part, two technologies: DED and LBM. LBM is used to create parts that exceed the performance of traditional piston heads. Whilst DED was used to create the rings and top section in a different high-performance material that increases wear resistance.

LBM is used to create parts that exceed the performance of traditional piston heads by introducing lattice structures to reduce weight and internal oil channel for increased performance. The Form Up 350 from AddUp printed multiple concept piston heads without the need for support material. DED was then used to create the rings and top section in a different high-performance material that increases wear resistance.

Utilizing the 5-axis build platform of the BeAM Magic 800 the rings were deposited fast and free of support structures.
