Manufacturer of metal Additive Manufacturing machines and solutions Eplus3D, Beijing, China, has released a new Laser Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-LB) Additive Manufacturing machine, the EP-M260, which offers both single and dual lasers at 500 or 1000 W.

The EP-M260 build volume is 266 mm x 266 mm x 390 mm3, which, Eplus3D states, makes it ideal for medium-sized parts and small-batch production. Its gas flow management and filter systems mean that it provides a more stable environment for building and its sealing capability helps to optimise the oxygen content within the build chamber.

The quantitative powder feeding and coating system is designed to result in less wasted powder and shortened coating times, while a powder recycling system with a ‘glove box’ structure minimises powder contact. The incorporation of intelligent software, which allows for in-situ monitoring, also means less physical human intervention is required.

Eplus3D reports that the EP-M260 machine also consumes a relatively small amount of inert gas during purging, and its advanced filtration system increases the lifetime of the filter. When the filters do require changing, the operation will continue throughout.
