SLM Solutions to demonstrate new SLM 800 at formnext

November 1, 2017

SLM Solutions Group AG, one of the leading manufacturers of metal-based Additive Manufacturing technology, will demonstrate a number of its latest advances during live demonstrations of its new SLM 800 system at formnext powered by TCT,  Frankfurt, Germany, November 14 – 17, 2017.

The new SLM 800 machine concept enables integration into automated and fully automated production processes. The system includes new, permanent filter technology, melt pool monitoring and laser power monitoring (now also for multi-laser operations), improved machine control software and an optional powder feeder unit using vacuum technology.

SLM Solutions is also exhibiting its Additive Designer in a trial version. The enhanced scope of services of this data processing software developed within the Group provides more opportunities to prepare and control metal-based Additive Manufacturing optimally.

“Technologically, we want to become the market leader thanks to total manufacturing integration with both existing factory and production processes as well as Industry 4.0 connectivity over the next few years. In economic terms, we are aiming to reach the 500 million euro sales mark by 2022,” stated Uwe Bögershausen, CEO of SLM Solutions Group AG.
