SUPPLIER SHOWCASE 54 NOVEMBER 2018 Additive Manufacturing SLM Solutions is a leading provider of metal-based additive manufacturing systems that optimize fast and cost-efficient part production. With multi-laser options; bi-directional recoating; an open system architecture for materials and parameters; and the safest operation with closed-loop powder handling, Selective Laser Melting systems achieve build speeds up to 70 percent faster than the com- petition for complex and completely dense metal parts. These powerful and innovative machines, available in three sizes with single, dual and quad laser capabilities, support an optimal approach for faster, more flexible metal part production and prototype development across the aerospace, automotive, academia, energy and medical industries. Headquartered in Lübeck, Germany, SLM Solutions Group is a publicly traded company (TecDax) with its North American office located in Metro-Detroit, Michigan. P R O D U C T S / S E R V I C E S SLM Solutions NA 48561 Alpha Drive Suite 300 Wixom, MI 48393 U.S.A. Phone: 248-243-5400 Additive.Designer: • Eliminates the need for STL files • Reduces the need for supports with an optimized exposure strategy • Guides users to the best plate positioning with component orientation processing • Offers a preliminary calculation of the build costs based on the machine and build setup SLM Machines SLM offers a machine portfolio that allows you to achieve greater component quality for complex, delicate, yet fast part builds. • Open system that allows materials from any supplier to be used • Operating parameters that are easily tested and developed, simplifying material development • Build volume reduction allows users to minimize powder usage • Quality assurance modules are available on single and multi-laser systems to monitor builds and aid in process transparency and documentation • High-efficiency filter system that is reusable; recyclable filter cartridges that reduce overall operational costs Additive.Designer Additive.Designer is pre-processing software that combines features necessary to generate 3D-printed parts while being fully adaptable to your needs. Additive.Designer lowers the learning curve of additive manufacturing by reducing the software skills necessary to be successful while optimizing builds with less supports and workflows based on specific part preparation.
