SLM Solutions to demonstrate metal Additive Manufacturing at AMUG conference

March 15, 2016

SLM Solutions Group AG, headquartered in Luebeck, Germany, has announced it will be giving a live demonstration of its SLM® 500HL quad laser metal Additive Manufacturing system at this year’s Additive Manufacturing Users Group (AMUG) conference in St. Louis, Missouri, USA, from April 3rd-7th, 2016.


Participants at the largest user conference for Additive Manufacturing technologies in the US will see first-hand how the compact system with its metal-based AM technology offers what SLM Solutions claims is the fastest build rate in its class. The Quad Laser technology (four 400 W) and the patented dual-beam technology increase the volume construction rate per time unit by up to 80% compared with a dual laser system.

“The AMUG conference is the best opportunity to get close to the US market and present the latest developments from SLM Solutions. We are pleased to show the level of development in our businesses and to get into intense discussion with our customers and prospects,” stated Andreas Frahm, Managing Director of SLM Solutions GmbH.
