SLM Solutions: New order intake in H1 2014 underpins positive expectations
The uptrend in SLM Solutions' order book position continued during the first six months of 2014, as expected: New order intake was boosted to a total of 19 machines - almost double last year's 10 machines. These orders include two orders for the SLM 500HL flagship product, currently the most productive laser melting system on the market. This shift towards high-value systems boosts the total value of the machines that have been ordered, the most important driver of corporate sales revenues.
Uwe Bögershausen, CFO of SLM Solutions Group AG, expressed his satisfaction: "Since the start of the year, we have observed a positive trend in our new order intake, and consequently regard this as a confirmation of our expectation for the full year. Internationally operating industrial companies are currently making a transition to deploying laser melting systems also for the direct component manufacturing. This is affecting components as varied as hip implants and dental prostheses, complex tooling applications, and aerospace components. The attractive market segment for metal-based 3D printing is about to pass the inflection point, and is now experiencing a growth boom from which SLM Solutions, in particular, will benefit as one of the technology leaders."
