SLM Metal 3D Printer

With a building chamber size of 450 x 450 x 550 mm Eplus3D Introduces EP-M450 to the successful line of MPBF™ 3D printers. The complete open systemmakes EP-M450 a very powerful tool for large scaleproduction for our customer to access different metal powders like titanium, aluminum, nickel alloys and stainless steel, etc. EP-M450 is aiming to output the large parts with its high performance and high accuracy. 

EP-M450 Metal 3D Printer Features

  • EP-M450 Metal 3d Printer Feature High Quality
    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.

    • Dynamic software with ability to divide the model into different sections like upper and lower surfaces, core areas and small areas etc. Different process parameters can be applied individually to these parts for high printed part quality.

    • Repeatable positional accuracy along Z-axis of building direction ≤±5 μm.

    • Overlapping deviation with dual laser printing ≤±0.1 mm. Overall mechanical properties of the printed part remains same when compared to printing results with the single laser machine.

  • EP-M450 Metal 3d Printer Feature High Efficiency
    High Efficiency
    • Build volume (X x Y x Z): 450 x 450 x 550 mm (height incl. build plate).

    • 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.

    • Bi-directional powder recoating method leads to reduced recoating time. 

  • EP-M450 Metal 3d Printer Feature Reliable
    • Excellent core optic components from world-class supplier and mature process control parameter 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 <100 ppm and a stable pressure 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-M450 Metal 3d Printer Feature Cost Effective Easy Operation
    Cost-effictive & Easy Operation
    • Blowback-enabled coarse and fine filtration system ensures a prolonged lifetime of filter over 30000 hrs. Permanent filter system optional.

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

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

    • Reduced gas consumption during printing ≤6 L/min helps reduce operation costs.

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

  • EP-M450 Metal 3d Printer Open System
    Open System
    • Open parameters for editing laser power, scan speed, scan direction, up and down facing surfaces etc.

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

    • Process software can be integrated with Siemens NX software to realize effective planning of design, simulation and printing path planning, within one software and highly improving the production efficiency.

    • Process software supports SLC and CLI formats.
