Jingye Additive Manufacturing acquires multiple metal AM machines from Eplus3D
April 19, 2022
Eplus3D, headquartered in Hangzhou, China, reports that Hebei Jingye Additive Manufacturing Technology Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of Jingye Group, has purchased multiple quad-laser EP-M650 metal Additive Manufacturing machines from Eplus3D.
Jingye Additive Manufacturing integrates R&D, production and sales of high-end aerosol metal powder, laser remanufacturing and Additive Manufacturing services. The company has established several manufacturing production lines, from Additive Manufacturing raw materials (metal powder) production to laser cladding repair, AM products and powder tool and die steel production.
The EP-M650 is a Laser Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-LB) based AM machine featuring a 655 x 655 x 800 mm3 build envelope and quad laser systems to ensure a high-efficiency production. The precise positioning and innovative area splicing control technology offer uniformity and stability throughout the whole printing phase. It can additively manufacture materials such as titanium, aluminium and nickel-base alloys, maraging steel, stainless steel, and chrome cobalt alloys. It is suitable for the production of large-scale, high-precision and high-performance parts in the aerospace, aviation, automotive and defence industries.
“The first EP-M650 3D Printer arrived a few months ago and we installed it immediately, which has been continuously printing metal parts,” stated a Jingye Additive Manufacturing representative. “Often one part has to be printed for more than ten days. At present, the printing success rate of our large parts is 100%, and there is no waste product. Whether it is foreign or domestic 3D printers, it is very difficult to do this, as the requirement of stability is very high. Continuous printing for up to twelve days without any problems in the process, requires high stability of the 3D printer. If the intermediate printing of such a large product fails, a lot of powder materials will be wasted, which may cost a lot, and seriously affect the delivery date.”
“In the future, we will also deploy super large metal 3D printers with moulding size of more than 1000 mm, and even larger of 1800 ~ 2000 mm to meet customers’ increasing demand for moulding size. Jingye Additive Manufacturing attaches great importance to the development of 3D printing projects, and spare no effort to provide all-round support, promote the development of high-end manufacturing and intelligent manufacturing industry, and contribute to China’s entry into a powerful country in science and technology.”
