Multi-laser Technology
The SLM®280 can be equipped with up to two 700W fiber lasers to accelerate the printing process of many metal additive powders.

Highest Productivity
Patented bi-directional powder recoating helps reduce manufacturing time by depositing a new layer of powder in both directions without having to return to a “home” position.

Material Flexibility
Paired with a Powder Sieving Machine (PSM), the SLM®280 offers material flexibility. Manual sieves allow efficient material changeover for adaptable production while maintaining safety and quality

  • Multi-laser systems can achieve build rates 80% faster than a single laser, and patented bi-directional powder recoating minimises manufacturing time by reducing the number of passes required to lay fresh powder during a build.
  • Outfitted with a standard PSM powder sieve, overflow bottles transfer material between sieve and machine reducing operator contact with loose powder. PSM sieves and powder change kits allow users material flexibility while maintaining powder quality in an inert atmosphere.
