Selective Laser Melting System Improves Efficiency, Powder Handling
IMTS 2018: DMG MORI’s Lasertec 30 SLM selective laser melting system enables the use of different powder materials, while an intelligent powder module concept speeds up changes of material.
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.
Machining a large 3D-printed part for aerospace composite tooling is fundamentally different than manufacturing the part traditionally. Baker Industries knows this first-hand.
