Features

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.
