Sentrol, Korea’s first industrial metal Additive Manufacturing system manufacturer, has announced the launch of the Sentrol 3D SM350 metal AM system for commercial production. The company also announced the launch of a new sand based system, the Sentrol 3D SS400(G).
The SM350 is a metal 3D printer based on SLM technology and can build metal objects up to 350 mm in diameter and 330 mm in height, at least 30 mm taller than the previous SM150 model. Suitable metal powders include titanium, inconel, cobalt chrome, stainless steel, maraging steel and more.
Seong Hwan Choi, CEO of Sentrol, stated that the launch of these new models would serve as a stepping stone for high-quality Korean 3D printers to be noticed internationally and to compete against global players in the market. “With our metal 3D printers we plan to aggressively expand into industry sectors such as aviation, medical device, shipbuilding, construction and electric vehicle,” he stated.
