SLM Solutions GmbH’s SLM 500 HL selective laser melting machine features a 500 × 280 × 325-mm build chamber and double-beam system of two fiber lasers that operate on the powder bed by means of a 3D scanning unit. A shell-core-imaging process includes two different laser beam profiles that can be used independently, or in parallel and simultaneously (dual-spot scanning) to increase productivity. Because the lasers can melt powder in multiple layers, the SLM 500 HL can achieve higher build rates over other additive metal systems, the company says.

The SLM system also includes Magic AutoFab rapid prototyping software that can process CAD/STL data files and has modules for monitoring, auditing and quality control.
