The Selective Laser Melting Machine SLM 280 2.0 provides a 280 x 280 x 365 mm³ build envelope and a patented multi-beam technology.

Depending on how the components are arranged, a 80% higher build rate can be achieved. In addition, the patented bidirectional powder coating helps to reduce the manufacturing time of individually manufactured metal build parts. Thus, the Selective Laser Melting Machine SLM 280 2.0 enables the manufacture of individual metal components based on CAD data for series production and one-off production with individual parameters.
