Cell of additive manufacturing by SLM
Pilot cell for the application and integral development of metallic additive manufacturing in powder bed tehcnologies.
It is provided companies with:
- Equipment (SLM equipment, generation1 (2007, upgrading 2015), generation 2 (2014, upgrading 2017), generation 3 (multilaser system, up to 4 lasers).
- Resources (systems for sieving and controlling the metallic powder flowability, sieve analysis…).
- Software (for the preprocess based on .STL and native CAD, Materialise, Autodesk). Software for the process simulation and distortion prediction (developed by IK4-LORTEK and commercial softwares GEONX, (GE Electric), Netfabb and Dassault 3D
Monitoring of SLM processes: this infrastructure is currently providing a series of sensors to the process data capture (process monitoring in a real time with thermal systems, image and acoustic emission systems). It is ready to stablish the required connectivity to ICTs platforms.
This facility can also improve by adding sensor systems and logic assets of other assets of the network.
The type of projects can cover from the introduction to the technology, testing, services and R&D projects.
Design software: Magics, Autodesk, Netfabb
Commercial and own software to process simulation and commercial systems (GEONX, AUTOdesk).
Updated version 2017.
It provides multilaser with the aim to improve building rate.
SLM equipment. SLM Solutions 280 HL with a laser of 400W
MCP Realizer equipment (with an open control system and capable of including sensors to investigate and improve the process). Acquisition date: 2007, optical system improvement 2015, open control 2018
Updated version 2017
