Selective Laser melting technology from Lubeck in the Luft – und Raumfahrt SLM solutions was at the 50th Paris air show in Le Bourget insight into a wide range of innovative products and technology in the field of generative manufacturing plants. The company exhibited the laser beam melting plant SLM 125 HL and informed of the larger systems of SLM 280 HL and SLM 500 HL. SLM solutions presented the latest products and developments that are groundbreaking for the aviation and aerospace industry. The stand with the laser beam melting plant SLM 125 HL was heavily frequented. A variety of qualified conversations and a great demand are the result of trade fair participation in Le Bourget. The systems of the SLM solutions generate high-quality metallic parts based on three-dimensional CAD data. Are extremely economical working equipment of laser melting for the R & D-area as well as designed for the production of highly delicate and complex workpieces.
The patented bi-directional Loaderbewegung leads the systems to the highest build rates. In addition, convince system with a patented safety filter system in conjunction with an efficient protection gas recirculation with laminar flow and low gas consumption. The systems come standard with a software for reading CAD / STL data or slice – provided data to the configuration of the process and device-specific parameters. The open control concept also allows customization and feed individual processes of building users. Hans J. Ihde, CEO of SLM Solutions GmbH: The strong demand at the Paris Air Show shows that the ALM technology remains also in 2013 on growth rate.
The globalization of competition in the aviation and aerospace is currently experiencing a great dynamic. The Paris Air Show offers an excellent opportunity to present our solutions to a wide range of customers as the world’s largest trade fair. With the expansion of business relations and entry into new markets in the foreground stand, to improve the international market positioning.” Monica Saini, technical director, Member of the Executive Board added: we have through our many years of experience, cooperation in research and development with leading institutions and universities, as well as the cooperation with leading manufacturers in the aerospace a good starting point, on wider international basis to be successful.
