This multi-laser system for metal Additive Manufacturing, or 3D printing, is manufactured in Germany and available in Australia. A high performance machine, users can select from options between multi-beam technology to increase build rates. With a 280 x 280 x 360 mm(x/y/z) build chamber and patented bi-directional powder coating, producing 3D metal parts can become a reality in your business be it for series production or a one-off prototype with individual parameters.
The machine has a closed-loop system that contains an inert gas flow managed within the build chamber and ensuring optimum processing conditions. Additionally, a work safe environment is provided with each SLM 280 2.0 machine as the metal powder is isolated from the user.
The latest ‘revolutionary’ Free Float software released by SLM Solutions GmbH in June 2021 that comes with every new machine or can be retrofitted, allows for a ‘profile’ to be applied at the pre-processing or CAD stage that reduces the need for supports in ‘overhang’ sections beyond 45 degrees. The new software will empower innovative design while creating thinner walls and sharper edges with reduced peel-off. Less metal powder is used, there is less wastage and reduced post-processing and time to final product.
This machine is suitable for one-off part replacements, for improving original part designs or implementing series production. Each machine is installed and supported by Raymax in Australia who provide initial training and continued support.
