Bright Laser Technologies (BLT), based in Xi’an, China, has announced that Extreme Manufacturing Engineering (EME), located in Veneto, Italy, has purchased both the BLT-S800 and BLT-S450 Laser Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-LB) AM machines.

The BLT-S800 features eight 500 W lasers, allowing for the rapid production of large parts with dimensions measuring up to 800 x 800 x 600 mm. The BLT-S450 is equipped with six lasers and offers a build volume of 450 x 450 x 500 mm, making it suitable for the manufacturing of small and medium-sized parts.

“We have increasing demand for additively manufactured parts in Europe, especially in automotive, consumer electronics, medical devices, and other applications, such as structural parts for amusement rides,” explained Eddi Tomat, CEO of EME. “Given their rich history and leadership in Additive Manufacturing, BLT is the ideal partner for us. Additionally, the BLT team has consistently demonstrated professionalism and attentiveness in addressing our needs and inquiries and we anticipate fostering even closer collaboration with BLT.”

Dr Xue Lei, CEO of BLT, added, “BLT has taken the lead in introducing the large-format printing system in the industry, with extensive experience in the development of large-sized, multi-laser printing solutions. These two systems have undergone years of market validation. We hope to lower the threshold of adopting this technology and bring metal 3D printing to millions of factories by adhering to the principle of ‘make it possible, make it affordable.’ We are happy that BLT and EME reached the consensus.”

At Formnext 2023, BLT showcased its complex parts in various applications, along with its proprietary software BLT-BP and BLT-MES and high-quality powders. The company also offered a demonstration of the Airbus-qualified BLT-S400 AM machine and its powder circulation system, which created full substrate parts instantly.
