LASERTEC SLM: Two process chains with additive manufacturing in the powder bed
The flexible rePLUG powder module enables material change in less than two hours.
DMG MORI offers the LASERTEC SLM series for additive manufacturing in the powder bed (Selective Laser Melting). The LASERTEC 30 SLM 2nd Generation has a 300 × 300 × 300 mm build volume and with its Stealth design offers optimum user comfort, while the new LASERTEC 12 SLM excels with its high above-average accuracy. With a focal diameter of just 35 µm it is four-times more accurate than the current industrial standard. This allows a significantly finer resolution of the structures thus enabling far thinner wall thicknesses. Standing at 125 x 125 x 200 mm the build volume of the powder bed machine is unique for this precision class.
In the market of selective laser melting both models, convince with flexibility, productivity, and process security. One of the highlights is the flexible powder module rePLUG. It allows changing materials in less than two hours. The closed powder circuit guarantees a high degree of safety during work and process autonomy. The ergonomic stealth design of both machines additionally reflects what DMG MORI has been pursuing continuously for many years. Work is supposed to become easier for users by a better accessibility of important components. This also make work more efficient in the long term.
Two process chains can be realized with powder bed technology: On the one hand, workpieces produced by means of additive manufacturing can be finished to the required surface quality on a milling machine such as the 5-axis DMU 50 3rd Generation. On the other, the LASERTEC SLM machines can finish previously milled base plates and bodies without any need for support structures.
The integral software solution for CAM programming and machine control CELOS rounds off the process chains with the LASERTEC SLM series. The coordinated and uniform user interface enables parts to be programmed externally with minimum time expenditure and transferred to the machine. Thanks to the efficient flow of information and intuitive operation CELOS ensures optimum processes in the pre- and post-processing of additively manufactured parts. In addition the open system of the LASERTEC SLM series enables individual adjustment of all machine settings and process parameters, right through to include an unlimited choice of material manufacturers.
