Nortec 2016

SLM Solutions presents 3D print to grasp at Nortec 2016

Luebeck, January 20, 2016. The SLM Solutions Group AG, a leading provider of metal-based additive manufacturing technology (also commonly referred to as "3D printing"), will introduce itself on the Nortec, the Manufacturing Trade Fair in the North in Hamburg. During the entire trade fair from January 26 to January 29, the Lübeck-based experts will actively participate both as exhibitors in hall A3, booth 515, and also as program designers.

On this occasion, SLM Solutions will present the selective laser melting system SLM® 280HL in hall A3, booth 515. This machine represents the entire laser melting process. The high-quality metal components are produced using three-dimensional CAD data. The SLM® 280HL is the ideal "all-purpose system" for both the R&D sector as well as for the additive manufacturing of complex components using patented multi-beam technology. The open control concept allows users not only the input of individual manufacturing processes but also their adjustment to individual requirements. The SLM® 280HL meets the customers' demands for compact, quality- and cost-optimized solutions. Depending on the component arrangement, an 80 % faster build-up rate per time unit can be achieved.

In addition to managing the exhibition area, Hendrik Schonefeld, the area sales manager of SLM Solutions, will participate in the forum "Digitalization and 3D printing". In his lecture “SLM Solutions for additive production methods with highest productivity in batch production”, Mr. Schonefeld will expand on the challenges of a "lean" production process using SLM® technologies. The lecture will be held on January 27 at 2:30 p.m. This lecture will cover the process chain and possible solutions backed-up by examples of implemented solutions. The topic "Productivity with the High-performance system SLM® 500HL will be considered in detail.
