DMG MORI’s Lasertec 30 selective laser melting (SLM) system enables the use of different metal powder, while an intelligent powder module concept speeds up changes of material. A closed powder circuit contributes to work safety and process autonomy, while an integrated powder recycling center with removable units improves efficiency and powder handling.

The machine’s ergonomic design simplifies workpiece handling and maintenance, while the new Stealth Design control panel keeps all important buttons and operating elements in direct view.

Holistic software solutions from the CAD file with RDesigner to the ROperator process control enable the SLM system to produce parts from various materials with high density and good mechanical properties, including those with lattice and honeycomb structures.

    When this company was solely an injection molder, job quantities had to be large. Now, with additive manufacturing, any quantity is right. The company's role and its range of customers have both expanded.

  • Can Additive Manufacturing Increase Milling Feed Rates?

    With PCD tooling, yes it can. The diamond cutting edges demand a large number of flutes to realize their full effectiveness. Traditional methods for making cutter bodies limit the number of flutes, but 3D printing is delivering tools with higher flute density and other enhancements as well.
