IMTS 2018: SLM Solutions’ SLM 280 3D printer prints dense metal parts with quality surface finish, dimensional accuracy and strength.

SLM Solutions’ SLM 280 3D printer prints dense metal parts with quality surface finish, dimensional accuracy and strength. An updated enclosure encases the machine, filters and closed-loop powder sieving station. Its 280 × 280 × 365-mm build platform, bi-directional powder re-coating and open system architecture combine with an updated filter module to reduce costs, increase runtime and lessen process waste. The process waste can be disposed of as a dry mixture while the filter can be re-used continuously. According to the company, the printer builds upon the shielding gas flow of the previous model to achieve homogeneous mechanical properties and keep the process chamber clean.
