SLM : METAL FUSION

SLM TECHNOLOGY

Our 3D metal printers (1 EOS M280, 2 SLM 280 HL and 2 SLM 500), allow from a CAO-3D file to build aluminium, stainless steel, 718 Inconel, TiAl6V4 Titanium and Maraging steel pieces. Additive metal manufacturing allows to make pieces with complicated geometry (cavity, arch material…) but also to make injection tools for plastic pieces.

PROCESS SLM

3D metal printing, known as SLM, is a laser technology that uses sintered metals. As with laser sintering, a high power laser melts the particles onto the powder bed while the machine distributes uniform metal powder layers. Support structures are automatically generated and built simultaneously, in the same material. They are then removed manually. Once completed, the part is subjected to a heat treatment

COST AND TIME OF SLM

Ideal in a direct manufacturing project (e-manufacturing), the metal additive manufacturing makes it possible to guarantee reduced manufacturing costs and delays. Thanks to this manufacturing process consisting in fusing material with a laser beam until we obtain, layer by layer of the part, we can ensure with the SLM the manufacture of prototypes and the production of small series.

ADVANTAGES OF SLM


The many advantages of metal smelting (SLM) are:
– No tools required
– Direct manufacturing of complex metal parts in one step
– No erosion or machining
– It is possible to generate the most elaborate geometries, such as digital materials, deep cracks and 3D cooling channels

Erpro Group,

 FIRST PURCHASER OF THE SLM 500 IN FRANCE :

ERPRO & SPRINT is a leading company in the field of digital manufacturing and offers a wide range of services in the 3D printing area. They recently became a new client and purchased the latest selective laser melting system SLM®500HL of SLM Solutions, equipped with 4x400W fiber lasers, to improve productivity and reduce production costs. Due to its quad laser technology, the SLM®500HL is by far the most efficient and compact machine on the market and belongs to the product portfolio of SLM Solutions Group AG, headquartered in Lübeck, Germany. The productive machine was sold to ERPRO & SPRINT through the French agent, Multistation.

“We, at SLM Solutions, are pleased to have ERPRO & SPRINT as an additional user of the latest selective laser melting system SLM®500HL”, states Andreas Frahm, Managing Director of Sales, Marketing and Service at SLM Solutions. “Indeed, ERPRO & SPRINT is a first level subcontractor, always looking for innovation and performance and we believe the SLM®500HL system contributes to the Additive Manufacturing success of ERPRO & SPRINT.”
