Keselowski Advanced Manufacturing (KAM), Statesville, North Carolina, USA, has added a third SLM 280 from SLM Solutions, Lübeck, Germany, expanding its fleet to now include twenty-one Additive Manufacturing machines.

The SLM 280 uses a Laser Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-LB) process and is reported to be ideal for medium to high volume metal Additive Manufacturing part production.

Including the three SLM 280 machines, KAM also has an SLM 800 Quad Laser machine, two EOS M 400-4s, one EOS M 290, thirteen EOS M 280 models and a GE Concept Laser M2. The company lists material options that include aluminium 6061, ALSI10MG, TIAL64V, maraging steel, stainless steel 17-4, stainless steel 316L, Inconel 625 and Inconel 718.

Established by former NASCAR champion Brad Keselowski, the company also offers a full complement of three to seven-axis CNC machining, CT/X-ray, full metrology and an on-site metallurgy laboratory.
