Ready for Serial Production
The SLM®800 utilizes our proven quad-laser technology with an extended z-axis for larger production builds. Vertically extending the build envelope reduces exposure per layer and yields higher part quality, in particular, to flatness and reduced internal material stress. Vertical orientations also need less supports reducing material usage and post-processing.

Permanent Filter Improves Uptime and Reduces Costs
The permanent filter module traps soot and condensate particles from the process gas stream in a sintered plate filter. The filter is purged with gas, the waste material coated with an inhibitor and dropped in a bin for dry disposal, while clean gas returns to the process chamber. This helps stabilize gas flow and ensures part quality throughout long builds without interruption. The elimination of consumable filter cartridges increases safety while improving machine uptime and reducing costs.

Automatic Powder Handling
Each SLM®800 features an integrated powder tank to supply the machine with a direct source of material. The additional central powder supply unit (CPS) features two 220l tanks, one fixed for delivery to the machine and one portable for powder refill. Sieves are located both in between the two CPS tanks and on the machine directly before use to ensure powder quality throughout the process. This leads to an increased machine uptime, high safety and material quality.

Offering the tallest powder bed fusion chamber on the market, the SLM®800 efficiently builds large components, expanding production possibilities.

The SLM®HUB and optional Build Cylinder Magazine create a fully automated, multi-machine setup to maximise machine uptime and provide a no-contact powder solution for production processes.
