Binder-jetting-system metal powder 3D printer
Molding size:65 mm x 65 mm x 160 mm
Re-coater heater:50℃ max., 1.8-kW output
Vacuum-constant temperature drying chamber:Green body/powder drying temperature range of 40 to 200℃
Degree of vacuum: 10 Pa, 2.25-W heater output
Inside dimensions:450 mm x 450 mm x 450 mm
Features: This product is equipped with a binder jetting-system 3D printer and produces and dries green bodies. Since it uses very fine powder (< 25 μm), it results in cleaner surfaces than an ordinary PBF system. The product is compatible with Co-based alloy, Ni-based alloy and Fe-based alloy powders.

Laser powder 3D printer

FormUp350
FormUp350

Bed-system metal powder 3D printer
Molding size: 350 x 350 x 350 mm
Laser output: 500 W, Yb laser, Ar
Molding thickness: 20 to 100 μm, preheating of 200 to 500℃
Features: This product uses a large metal powder bed-system 3D printer and fine powder (< 16 μm) to produce high-precision objects with low surface roughness. It can shape an overhang of 10° or more without any support.
