(PresseBox) ( Lübeck, )
SLM Solutions Group AG, a leading provider of metal-based additive manufacturing technology from Lübeck, will present its latest developments in additive manufacturing based on selective laser melting at the Paris Air Show from June 19 to 25, 2017. At the world’s largest aerospace show, the Lübeck-based company will present its SLM 280 2.0 with 2x 700-W lasers at the joint BDLI stand B291 in hall 2A.

The biennial "Paris Air Show" in Le Bourget near Paris is seen as the most important event in the world for the aerospace industry. This year's show is the 52nd in the event's history, and will take place from June 19 to 25, 2017. SLM Solutions Group AG will present its wide range of products and services for metal-based manufacturing technology, along with custom solutions based on the SLM production process, at the joint stand of the BDLI (hall 2A, stand B291).
Development in additive SLM technology has come a long way since SLM Solutions first exhibited at the Paris Air Show. The improved and modified machine technology underlines SLM Solutions’ expertise and pioneering role in selective laser melting technology.
In Le Bourget, SLM Solutions will present the new SLM 280 2.0 with 2x 700 W lasers. The machine creates high-quality metal components based on 3D CAD data. Measuring 280 x 280 x 365 mm³, the machine has one of the largest build envelopes in its class and offers patented multi-beam technology. The powerful 700-W lasers, which expose the build field during the build process via a 3D scan optic, help to further shorten build times. The machine's excellent productivity, high quality and safe powder handling make it perfect for the aerospace industry.
Uwe Bögershausen, CFO of SLM Solutions Group AG, sees the machine as the culmination of the company's efforts: "Alongside continuous modification, we closely collaborate with well-known institutes and universities in research and development. Together with partners like EADS Innovation Works, we are working to both improve the machines further and provide new materials to meet even tougher requirements. The 700-W machine helps further reduce design and build times, for example. The new melt pool monitoring system ensures excellent component quality, whilst the unique full automation fitted as standard guarantees lower fitting times."
