New Additive Manufacturing System



"The SLM 280 metal additive manufacturing (AM) system 3-D prints fully dense metal parts with exceptional surface finish, dimensional accuracy and strength," said an SLM Solutions spokesperson. The pillar of the SLM Solutions' metal 3-D printer lineup will be unveiled with a new body at IMTS - encasing the machine, filters and closed-loop powder sieving station into one seamless design. Along with its 280 x 280 x 365 mm build platform, bi-directional powder re-coating and open system architecture, a new enhanced filter module reduces consumable costs, increases runtime and reduces process waste. The process waste can be safely disposed of as a dry mixture while the filter can be re-used continuously.

According to Dr. Richard Grylls, SLM Solutions North America Technical Director, "Good shielding gas flow is essential to achieving homogeneous mechanical properties throughout the build. Too little gas flow, and the soot from the process will hinder the laser; too much and the powder bed will be disturbed. The new-look SLM 280 builds on the gas flow of the previous model."

Additionally, SLM Solutions will present Additive.Intelligence software allowing for the implementation of additive in manufacturing and production environments. Additive.Designer's features include imports of all native CAD formats, eliminating the need for STL files, reducing supports with an optimized exposure strategy, guiding users to the best plate positioning with component orientation processing and offering a preliminary calculation of build costs based on machine and build set-up. The goal of the software is to lower the learning curve of additive manufacturing by reducing the software skills necessary to be successful while optimizing builds with less supports and workflows based on specific part preparation.
