SLM Metal 3D Printer

Eplus3D Introduces EP-M400 to the successful line of MPBF™ 3D printers. EP-M400 is a marvelous metal printer that makes the production of reliable and high quality large metallic parts viable on industrial scale without requiring any tools. It is optional for single laser, dual laser, triple laser and quad laser. Due to its high efficiency, quality production and dependability along with the ease of operation and integration of additive manufacturing into overall manufacturing ecosystem, EP-M400 makes sure its owners remain one step ahead in their field of engagement. 

EP-M400 Metal 3D Printer Features

  • EP-M400 Metal 3D Printer Feature High Quality
    • Printed parts' density > 99.9 %, deviation in parts' mechanical properties < 5 %.

    • The optimized gas flow design ensures efficient removal of smoke and splashes as well as achievement of uniform and consistent full size printing.

    • The overall mechanical properties of the printed part remain the same when compared to printing results with other laser machines.

  • EP-M400 Metal 3D Printer Feature High Efficiency
    • Build volume (X x Y x Z): 400 x 400 x 450 mm (height incl. build plate), build chamber volume > 70 L.

    • Printing with increased layer thickness can be realized, increasing the production capacity.

    • With in-house developed processing software (EPHatch), optimized scanning strategies can be achieved with reduced print duration. 

  • EP-M400 Metal 3D Printer Feature Reliable
    • Excellent core optic components from world-class supplier and mature process controlparameter algorithm provides highest part quality.

    • High quality uniform part printing due to excellent control over building environment and components.

    • Tightly sealed build chamber maintains oxygen concentration s100 ppm and a stablepressure during printing.

    • Sustained monitoring of powder left in feeder and ability to add powder without stopping the machine ensures uninterrupted part printing.

    • Double protection of chamber door is attained due to dual gas releasing ports on top of printing chamber. 

  • EP-M400 Metal 3D Printer Feature Cost-effective & Easy Operation
    • Three-stage filtration, which can use blow back function to remove the fume, equipped with perma- nent filter element.

    • Highly user friendly software interface and one-click printing technology makes printing super simplified.

    • Comparability with different types of recoater lips such as ceramic, PU, alloy steel, etc.

    • Traceable print records after every print and real-time display of readings for various sensors. 

  • EP-M400 Metal 3D Printer Feature Open System
    • Open parameters for editing laser power, scan speed, scan direction, up and downfacing surfaces etc.

    • Open system ensures freedom to choose among wide range of metal powders available in market.

    • Process software supports SLC and CLI formats.
