The increasing demand for components in Selective laser melting necessitated an expansion of capacity by adding another machine.
With new technology for polyamide casting, not only the capacity could be expanded. Increase of maximum usable space means a size of 1200 x 600 x 500 mm and a total part weight of up to 2.5 kg.
In autumn 2015, the construction of the new hall was started. After some difficulties, the hall was completed in March 2017. The moveof the vacuum casting department for both polyamide and polyurethane parts was in the way.
Start of SLM 280 HL (Selective Laser Melting) build space: 280 x 280 x 350 mm material: stainless steel, aluminium, tool steel, titanium
