GE Additive unveiled the Concept Laser M2 Series 5. This latest iteration supports part quality and consistency in serial additive production for customers in medical and other industries. The machines, manufactured at the GE Additive Lichtenfels facility, are available for order now, with delivery expected in 1Q20.
The M2 Series 5 offers optimized system speed, uptime, productivity and reliability, part-to-part and machine-to-machine consistency, quality control and process validation.
New features and benefits include the following.
Increased part quality and consistency: More consistency across the whole build plate, accommodating several build jobs and machine to machine; improved part consistency build to build and machine to machine based on machine architecture, calibration and control; an upgraded gas flow system with closed gas circuit and redundant oxygen monitoring for part quality and minimized filter changes, etc.
Increased productivity: 2x increased build speed and laser on time; dual laser system with up to 100% coverage per laser; higher productivity potential enabled by number of lasers, 3D optics, software, gas flow, etc.; part yield; up to 20% finer feature resolution, etc.
Enhanced usability and maintainability: Upgraded software and system design; a glovebox system for non-contact handling of reactive materials, better filter change and inerted sieving and powder exchange, etc.
