The SLM 280HL metal additive manufacturing system features i-directional re-coater that lays fresh powder on the build plate in both directions, reducing build times by 30%.
Multiple laser configurations – including twin 400W, or dual 400W and 1,000W lasers – can increase build speeds compared to single laser options.
Powder handling systems use inert gas handling to minimize the risk of operator exposure to metal powders and ensure top material quality. An open system architecture for materials and parameters allows users to set standard or propriety parameters. As users max out the capacity of a machine, individual developments on the SLM 280HL can be transferred to other machines, such as the larger SLM 500HL platform.
