2oneLab GmbH, a recently established manufacturer of Additive Manufacturing machines headquartered in Darmstadt, Germany, has launched 2Create, the company’s first Laser Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-LB) metal AM machine.

Designed specifically for small and medium-sized parts, the 2Create features a 250W laser with a 110 mm diameter x 100 mm high build plate. It can process a range of materials, including aluminium and titanium as well as nickel-, cobalt-, iron- and copper-base alloys.

The interface software for the 2Create is designed to enable easy setup and simple operation of the machine. At the same time, it offers a high degree of flexibility, with parameters such as laser power or spot size being adjustable during the process. This feature is said to be especially beneficial to users in research and development.

With an open concept design, the 2Create is compatible with metal powders from a number of powder manufacturers. “This flexibility, along with the machine’s increased energy efficiency, drastically reduces the user’s development costs,” Markus Wolf, Founder and CTO, told Metal AM magazine. “Whether you need to make implants, industrial parts or just for the flexibility of research and development, the 2Create can handle the job in a cost-effective, efficient and high-quality way.”

2oneLab does not only focus on the development and manufacturing of AM hardware. The company’s goal is to simplify the Additive Manufacturing workflow through the use of innovative software concepts, allowing the user to exploit the full potential of additive technologies. To this end, the company has also launched 2Build, its own CAM software package. 2Build is said to reduce preparation time, optimise build results and minimise post-processing.

“We see our software as an holistic solution to support the digital workflow as completely as possible. For example, in addition to classic features such as nesting, labelling and support creation, our software supports the planning of print production in the dental lab with the Production Manager Tool,” added Ran Reznik, founder and CEO.

“In addition, we support the user in the development of new printing strategies. For this purpose, we have integrated a DoE [Design of Experiments] manager in the software. The entire test planning, according to statistical methods, can be carried out with this tool. The software analyses the density distribution of micrograph images of test patterns and calculates the optimal working point.” continued Reznik.

More information about the 2Create AM machine and 2Build software can be found on the company’s website.
