Laseradd Co., a Chinese manufacturer specialising in the manufacturing of SLM metal printing equipment, launched four new metal 3D printers at the recently concluded TCT Asia summit 2018. The four metal 3D printers consist of three DiMetal series of SLM printers and one metal SLS 3D Printer.
Laseradd Co., a year old company, has managed to raise quite a few eyebrows by shocking the world by unveiling four new metal 3D printers in its very first event. The four metal 3D printers comprise of DiMetal-50, DiMetal-100, DiMetal 300/500, and the SLS-400. The names signify the dimensions of the build volumes.
|3D Printers||Build Volumes|
|DiMetal-50||50 x 50 x 50 mm|
|DiMetal-100||100 x 100 x 100 mm|
|DiMetal 300/500||250 x 250 x 300 mm and 500 x 250 x 300 mm|
|SLS-400||400 x 400 x 400 mm|
The smallest 3D printer by the company is apparently the highest selling product and has already received 5 orders. It offers a layer thickness of 20 microns and is available with an option of having either a 70W or a 200W laser. The printer is most suited to applications like jeweller and dental products. It can print stainless steel, titanium alloys, and cobalt-chromium alloys.
The DiMetal-100 3D printer is completely similar to DiMetal-50. It is available in two laser options of 200W and 500W. Also, it is bigger than the DiMetal-50 printer. Due to its larger size, it also caters to orthopaedic professionals apart from jewellers and dentists.
This metal 3D printer is also similar to the rest of the DiMetal series of printers. It is powered by a 500W laser and is best suited in mould manufacturing and functional parts in various industries like automotive, aerospace, medical, etc.
The stand out feature of this printer is its Multi-Printing capability. It can print a single object in a single material, with two to four materials for gradient building, and with one to four materials with them forming at different positions.
This last 3D printer was showcased by a customer who is using this printer in the nuclear industry to print casings in tungsten from December 2017 and is happy with the results. The printed parts display good strength and durability.
This printer also supports other materials like polymers, ceramics & nylon apart from metal. This allows it to be used in multiple industries like aerospace, automotive, medical, and nuclear power plants.
All the new metal 3D printers launched by Laseradd Co., are focussed on providing the best quality. All the four printers have a gas shield protection system. The company believes it is different than other metal 3D printer manufacturing companies due to its unique offering.
The team has revealed that it will very soon launch three new printers but the announcement will be made pretty soon.
