SLM Solutions proudly displays the largest piece of metal they have made to date with one of their powerful 3D printing machines. What you have before you in the image present just above these lines is nothing less than an aircraft valve. As a detail and proudly comments the company, apparently its manufacture has taken them nothing less than seven days of uninterrupted work on one of your printers.
Going into a little more detail, we learn that the piece measures 310 x 222 x 220 mm and was manufactured in titanium by the SLM 280HL, a metal 3D printer that features a 400W double laser. Undoubtedly a feat for a machine that, after seven days of uninterrupted work, demonstrates the great reliability and above all the work capacity of this particular machine.
SLM Solutions proudly displays the latest creation made in titanium with the SLM 280 HL.
Thanks to projects like the one carried out at SLM Solutions, we understand much better how today we are experiencing a new and enormous industrial revolution that will reach practically all fields. Perhaps one of the most resisting is that of the manufacture of objects with metal although, without a doubt, also is growing rapidly thanks to the enormous interest that the aeronautical and aerospace sector has in this type of technology, which in turn promises, among other things, the creation of lighter and topologically optimized components that cannot be manufactured by traditional means.
