Paris Air Show 2013: Strong presence of SLM Solutions

(PresseBox) (Lübeck, ) SLM Solutions received at the Paris Airshow 2013 numerous requests. The German manufacturer of equipment for additive manufacturing systems had many interesting discussions during the show at Le Bourget on the BDLI association booth in Hall 2.

SLM Solutions gave an insight into a wide range of innovative products and technology in the field of additive manufacturing systems at Le Bourget. The company presented the laser melting system SLM 125 HL and informed about the larger machines SLM 280HL and SLM 500 HL. SLM Solutions showed the latest developments and products which are setting the way to the aviation and aerospace industry. The booth with the laser melting system SLM 125 HL was heavily crowded. A large number of qualified calls and a lot of demands are the result of participation in Le Bourget.

The Selective Laser Melting Systems produce highly complex metal components using fine metal powders from 3 D CAD-data files. The extremely economical systems are suitable for R&D environment as well as for production areas. With the patented new bidirectional loader movement the systems are becoming the fastest systems available. Furthermore the systems offer a safe filter system and highly efficient protective gas consumption due to internal recirculation of inert gas at laminar flow.

Hans J. Ihde, Managing director of SLM Solutions GmbH notes: "The strong demand at the Paris Air Show shows that the ALM technology in 2013 is still on course for growth. The globalization of competition in the aerospace industry is currently experiencing a great dynamic. The Paris Air Show as the world's largest trade fair provides an excellent opportunity to showcase our solutions to a wide range of customers, the expansion of business and the entry into new markets to improve the international market position. Henner Schöneborn, Technical Director, adds: "We have many years of experience, cooperation in research and development with reknowned institutes and universities as well as cooperation with leading manufacturers in the aerospace industry. This will be a good base to be successful on a wider international basis. Our systems give companies the chance to optimize their production in a more efficient and independent way".
