Selective Laser Melting System 500 HL provides a build chamber of 500 x 280 x 325 cmm and a unique double beam technology. Each of the two fi bre lasers (400 +1000W) operate on the powder bed by a 3D scanning unit. Two of these units are working at the same time. Included in the SLM® 500 HL is the shell-core-imaging process with two different laser beam profi les. These profi les may be used independently, but also parallel and simultaneously in the process. This will signifi cantly increase productivity.
The transport of metal powder is done by a continuous conveying system due to the increased volumes and weights. This automates the management of powder and eliminates the manual handling of loads with bottles and containers. The time consuming manual input of fi lling the system no longer applies.
The system does offer the leading software in rapid prototyping, Magic AutoFab, to process CAD/ STL-data files as a standard feature which is also used for slicing and support generation. In addition the software architecture includes modules for monitoring, auditing and quality assessment to exercise optimal quality control in production.
