SLM 280HL metal printer

The latest-generation and state-of-the-art technology SLM laser melting system. As base material, the printer uses fine-grained metal powder with 99.9 % density to produce homogeneous metal objects. The geometry for the component is constructed layer by layer by using cross profile data derived from the 3D model.
The SLM 280HL printer is equipped with multi-laser technology and closed-cycle powder circulation to ensure printing speed and quality.

Printing volume:
280 x 280 x 365 mm3

Primary materials:
- Stainless steel 316L, download the specs.
- Aluminium alloy AlSi10Mg, download the specs.
- Tool steel 1.2709, Maraging, download the specs.

The printed materials are extremely dense and highly weldable. Their machinability is also good. Thermal treatment can be used to affect the material qualities and adjust them to suit the target of application. Download the tool steel thermal treatment specs here.

Other possible materials include, among others:
- Titanium alloys
- Inconel alloys
- Cobalt-Chrome

Manufacturing plastic products using a laser-induced sintering technique

Objects made with laser sintering meet the most demanding requirements, both in terms of mechanical qualities and geometrical tolerances. This technique, as well, uses a manufacturing method based on cross profile data derived directly from the 3D model, adding layer after layer to the object. The hardware at our disposal is suited to both the serial production of smaller objects and to making larger prototypes; all in a cost-effective manner.
