Concept Laser’s Large Scale Metal 3D Printing

Concept Laser, a leading German innovator in the field of laser melting with the patented LaserCUSING® technology, has commercialized its Series model X line 1000R industrial 3D printing platform. The machine enables new applications for large components and quick construction rates that are securing some serious interest from the automotive and aerospace industries.

The large-format X line 1000R system was developed jointly with the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology in Aachen and is proving to be a step in the right development direction with more details emerging. The Model X 1000R has a large build envelope — 630 mm in the X axis, 400 mm in the Y axis and 500 mm in the all important Z axis. This ensures a total build volume of 125 liters making it the largest of its kind in the world for processing metal and capable of building a standard V6 engine. Simply put, these specifications create significantly greater productivity when compared with other commercially available laser melting systems. … (Read more)
