DMG MORI CO., LTD., Nagoya City, Japan, has begun taking orders for its new Lasertec 30 SLM metal Additive Manufacturing machine. The system was developed in collaboration with German-based AM company Realizer GmbH, which joined the DMG MORI Group in February this year.
According to DMG MORI, the Lasertec 30 SLM can achieve highly accurate Additive Manufacturing with a build volume of 300×300×300 mm and a layer thickness of 20 to 100 µm, enabling users to manufacture small workpieces such as impellers and dental crowns. The machine is especially suitable for the production of high-mix, low-volume parts or complex-shaped workpieces.
The Lasertec 30 SLM is also DMG MORI’s smallest Additive Manufacturing system to date. Its small footprint was reportedly achieved by incorporating fewer movable axes and simplifying overall machine construction.
The new machine employs a cartridge-type powder material supply/collection system, which the company states make it possible to achieve powder recycling rates of 95% – 98%. The use of cartridges also facilitates easy powder change.
