Prima Additive, the Additive Manufacturing division of Prima Industrie Group, headquartered in Turin, Italy, will present a number of additively manufactured solutions at the IDS International Dental Show trade fair in Cologne, Germany, March 14-18.

On the stand, attendees will be able to see the Print Sharp 150 Laser Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-LB) AM machine from Prima Additive. The compact machine consists of a cylindrical working volume of 150 x 160 mm and can produce up to 180 items in a single build job lasting just over three hours. The Print Sharp 150 also features optimised gas flow for minimum nitrogen or argon consumption, and material can be changed in less than two hours due to its modular composition. The machine is equipped with a 300W single mode IR fibre laser source, which is air-cooled, so no external unit cooler is required.

A single line width of 0.1 mm and a minimum layer thickness of 0.02 mm can be achieved, whilst a compact optical scanning system offers high processing speeds and various scanning strategies.

Intelligent control software allows rapid orientation of parts and the defining of machine functions by the operator. With an open process parameter management tool, users can also change key build parameters, select a scanning strategy, and export machine-readable files.
