Premium Quality and the Highest Productivity
Third-generation machine designed for production environments. Featuring multiple lasers, closed-loop powder handling and upgraded process controls are ideal for demanding applications to achieve high levels of productivity. The SLM®280 can be equipped with up to two 700W fiber lasers to accelerate the printing processes of variety of metal additive powders.
Patented bi-directional powder recoating helps reduce manufacturing time by depositing a new layer of powder in both directions, without having to return to a “home” position.
Gas Flow that Ensures the Highest Part Quality
The SLM®280 Production Series provides a patented, laminar gas flow that creates a clean process environment and increases quality throughout the whole build. Powder transport, sieving and storage is contained within an inert gas atmosphere to maintain powder quality.
The permanent filter module traps soot and condensate particles from the process gas stream in a sintered plate filter. The filter is purged with gas, the waste material coated with an inhibitor and dropped in a bin for dry disposal, as clean gas returns to the process chamber.
Closed Loop Powder Handling Increases Safety and Material Quality
Powder transport, sieving and storage is contained within a closed-loop, inert gas atmosphere to maintain material quality.
Equipped with a patented set-up comprising a sintered wall, the SLM 280 series creates a clean processing environment that increases build quality and reduces gas consumption.
