AMBIT™ ONE

The AMBIT™ ONE gives new meaning to the phrase “one and done”. Its compact, robust and built to address a specific need.

 

The problem

During the early 1990s, academic research had demonstrated the potential benefits of combining
additive techniques with milling. However, despite the universally-acknowledged potential and a few
niche successes, there were still no commercial solutions to enable mainstream CNC machines to
add metal. That is why Hybrid Manufacturing came in.

The Solution

In 2007, active use of a high-speed milling machine was initiated at De Montfort University’s
Additive Manufacturing (AM) and 3D printing research laboratory. The blending of additive and
subtractive technologies led to a research project in UK, that lasted for four years and was named
RECLAIM.
The key objectives were to provide a practical means for hybrid manufacturing. In order to achieve
this, the founders designed and developed a set of compact directed energy deposition heads. What
made them unique was the integration method.
For the first time ever, a solution was created that did not require modification of the structural
parts of the CNC machine.
This research endeavor matured into the AMBIT™ tool-changeable deposition system. By 2013 Dr.
Jason Jones and Peter Coates founded what is now Hybrid Manufacturing Technologies.  In 2020, in
an attempt to create a new manufacturing approach to aid in the fight against COVID-19, Hybrid
Advanced Manufacturing was born.
