Developed jointly with the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology, Concept Laser's X line 1000R laser melting system offers a build envelope of 630 × 400 × 500 mm for the manufacture of large, functional components and technical prototypes. Its key component is a high-performance, 1,000-W laser that the company says enables increased productivity over other laser melting systems.
Intended for both automotive and aerospace applications, the large-format system can deliver construction speeds as fast as 65 cm³/hr. compared with build rates of 10-15 cm³/hr. on comparable systems, the company says. Quality management modules like QMcoating and QMmeltpool are said to maintain component quality. concept-laser.de
