Developed jointly with the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology, Concept Laser’s X line 1000R laser melting system offers a build envelope of 630 × 400 × 500 mm for the manufacture of large, functional components and technical prototypes. Its key component is a high-performance, 1,000-W laser that the company says enables increased productivity over other laser melting systems.

The large-format system is intended for both the automotive industry, which primarily uses aluminum for lightweight construction, and aerospace applications, which use high-performance materials such as titanium. It can deliver construction speeds as fast as 65 cm³/hr. compared with build rates of 10-15 cm³/hr. on comparable systems, the company says. Quality management modules like QMcoating and QMmeltpool are said to maintain component quality despite the highly dynamic process.
