MCP SLM 100 is for detailed, small feature and micro parts
Intended for highly detailed, small feature and micro parts, MCP's SLM 100 combines the use of an IR fibre laser with a spot size down to 25 microns and a build envelope of just 100 mm diameter by 125mm in z.
"Many applications are being developed in partnership with MCP under non-disclosure agreements and so cannot be fully described here," says business development manager Bob Bennett, "but we are already talking to customers looking to manufacture micro-electronic parts in shape memory alloys, and components with very thin walls and highly complex geometries for novel micro-engineering designs. Jewellery designers are also looking at the SLM 100 to produce highly intricate designs in gold and titanium.”
The new SLM 100 is a physically smaller machine than standard SLM equipment and stands just 2,000 mm high with a footprint of 800 by 800 mm.
