SLM Solutions GmbH, a German manufacturer of equipment for Rapid Prototyping presents the SLM 280 HL, a new generation of Selective Laser Melting Systems at EuroMold 2011 in Frankfurt in hall 11.0, booth C80.
SLM Solutions, leading manufacturer of equipment for small and medium lot production of series parts is serving customers in the fields of Vacuum Casting, Metal Casting as well as Selective Laser Melting (SLM) and presents its latest generation of Selective Laser Melting Systems, the SLM 280 HL. SLM Solutions GmbH focuses on technical parameters as there are given process reliability, operator convenience or build speed for example and works closely together with considerable economic institutions promoting the potential of Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS).
A close cooperation with Fraunhofer ILT in Aachen enables the SLM Solutions GmbH to develop and to manufacture a system technology that is more effective to compact series parts. The generative Selective Laser Melting System SLM 280 HL provides a build chamber of 280 x 280 x 350 mm and a unique double beam technology. Due to the fact that the new system avoids the usage of “Z-Shift” F-Theta Optics, the beam focus as well as the component quality factor achieve a higher level of quality. Furthermore a wide range of materials has been covered throughout the years with the result of qualified substances as there are Stainless Steel, Tooling Steel, Cobalt-Chromium, Super Alloys, Aluminium or Titanium.
Innovative solutions as for example the patented and bidirectional movement of the loader makes the SLM Solutions Systems to high rate products in its class. Together with the patented safe filter system in conjunction with the highly efficient protective gas agitation, the SLM 280 HL convinces with optimal process conditions in a lasting production. As a standard all systems are provided by the market-leading Rapid-Prototyping-Software Magics AutoFab to read a variety of Cad-format and STL-Data respectively Slice-Data configurating process- and part specific parameters. Moreover a totally open control programme supports the operator to work out individual building parameters. Therefore material qualifications can be implemented directly by the operator with regard to his own specific requirements.
SLM Solutions GmbH, Manufacturer of equipment for small and medium lot production of prototypes and series parts is servicing customers in the field of Vacuum casting, metal casting and Selective Laser Melting for more than 50 years. Focused industries are Automotive, education, consumer electronics, aerospace and medical.
As a pioneer in this field SLM Solutions is developing and producing specific and economical solutions for their customers. The company has long time Know-how in Rapid prototyping processes and customer areas. This knowledge was acquired under the previous company setups and names HEK GmbH, MCP HEK Tooling GmbH, MTT Technologies GmbH and finally today SLM Solutions GmbH
