1) SELECTIVE LASER MELTING (SLM)
SLM250HL, SLM280HL and SLM500HL Machines
The Selective Laser Melting systems 250HL (build volume 250 x 250 x 250) mm3, 280HL (280 × 280 × 365 mm) and 500HL (500 × 280 × 325) mm3 produce homogeneous metal components using fine metal powders, achieving material densities of up to 99.9 %.
The SLM 250HL, 280HL and 500HL feature modular designs divided into various sections that can be individually serviced, replaced or extended. The heated build platform (up to 200°C) can be moved up to 350 mm in the Z-direction. In addition to the patented new bidirectional loader movement, the SLM excels with a safe filter system and highly efficient patented protective gas consumption. The system is fitted with the software SLM® Auto-FabCAM, which has already proven itself for functional strategy and production-oriented data processing.
The SLM system can process most metals. Various Stainless Steels, Tool Steels, Cobalt-Chromium, Super Alloys, Copper alloys, Aluminium and Titanium have been processed successfully already. Further options are available that increase the versatility and multiple usability of the system. Further available options do increase the versatility.
DMG MORI LaserTec 65
DMG MORI integrates for the first time the additive manufacturing into a high-tech 5 axis milling machine. This innovative hybrid-solution combines the flexibility of the laser metal deposition process with the precision of the cutting process and therewith allows additive manufacturing in milling quality. The process uses the metal deposition by powder nozzle, which is up to 10 times faster than the generation in the powder bed.
Up to now additive technologies have been used to generate prototypes and small parts. By combining both, additive manufacturing via powder nozzle and the traditional cutting method in one machine, totally new applications and geometries are possible. Especially large workpieces with high stock removal volumes are now possible to be machined in an economical way. The flexible change between laser and milling operation allows the direct milling machining of sections which are not reachable anymore at the finished part.
