The 17th MECSPE is being enriched with an "Additive Manufacturing” show for the first time. Professional 3D-printing technologies increase the efficiency of production and prototyping processes as well as enable increased flexibility with reduced time and costs.

At the international trade fair for special mechanics MECSPE in Parma, Italian manufacturing companies can obtain information about the efficiency of metal-based additive manufacturing technology. Together with its partner Overmach S.p.A, SLM Solutions Group AG will present additive SLM® technology at booth K19 in the hall for additive manufacturing in Pavilion Pad. 6. The experts will demonstrate the complete process chain (closed loop) of generative manufacturing from data generation and melting to powder recovery and reprocessing on the selective laser melting machine SLM®500.

The SLM®500 provides a large construction space of 500 x 280 x 365 mm³ and has patented multi-beam technology. Up to four fiber lasers with 700 W are simultaneously in use per shift in the high-performance machine. It is specifically designed for use in a production environment.
