Are you working in metal 3D printing? If you are using technology from Concept Laser, the new build processor from Materialise is going to be making that process even better, simplifying and standardizing the 3D printing process and communication with the machine itself through a streamlined match between hardware and software. The partnership between Materialise and Concept Laser centers around defining simplicity and user-friendliness across the board for a wide range of industries.
With a focus on the highest-quality components being made from metal powders, technology from Concept Laser is a favorite with those involved in using 3D metal printing for:
- Automotive industry
- Jewelry (such as delicate items and watches)
Concept Laser, based in Germany, is a leading manufacturer of industrial laser machines used to make products from metal powder. At Concept Laser, their customized LaserCUSING technology sets them apart in the world of 3D metal printing, with an emphasis on protecting the environment also.
Concept Laser technology is important for those exploring 3D metal printing, because with their metal laser melting process, the finished component is produced with nearly perfect material properties. The process also offers:
- Unique freedom of geometry, which could not be created through traditional methods.
- Limitless manufacturing of components with internal hollow or grid structures.
- The ability to be ‘green,’ by producing almost no waste—with non-melted metal able to be re-used. The laser process is also nearly emission free because of its high efficiency.
- Near net shape – Producing components with a ‘near-net-shape’ or ready-to-install geometry is more efficient and saves on the bottom line.
With the new build processor from Materialise, the uses for Concept Laser’s printing processes should transcend to a number of different industries with improved user experience and a number of new options for users, such as streamlined transfer of data, and two-way communication between software and the 3D printer.
It’s a two-way street as the machine also gives feedback allowing for easy storage and maintenance of data. Expanding options to users with slice-based technology, handling of large files containing metadata on texturing or structures is greatly improved. The new build processor is part of a program Materialise offers to several manufacturing partners in an effort to strengthen their core focus with the Materialise software that partners can customize specifically to their own machines.
