M&H, a 3D printing specialist based in Ilz, Austria, is further upgrading its state-of-the-art machinery with the SLM 800. The high-performance 3D printer from German quality manufacturer SLM enables the Styrian company to produce high-precision and complex metallic components, massively expanding its manufacturing capabilities. It is the only machine of its kind in the DACH region to be used by a service provider – according to information from the manufacturer SLM Solutions.
“The acquisition of the SLM 800 expands our range of manufacturing options and strengthens our position as an innovative 3D printing company,” says Patrick Herzig, CEO of M&H CNC Technik. “We are convinced that 3D metal printing has the potential to revolutionize the manufacturing industry and we want to play our part. With this investment, we can offer our customers even better solutions and focus on new markets.”
The SLM 800 is equipped with an installation space of 500 x 280 x 850 mm and a quad laser configuration (4x 700 W). This corresponds to the installation space and optics configuration of the SLM 500 – also available at M&H – with an installation space of 850 mm extended in the Z direction.
“The installation space height is definitely an absolute highlight. Even very tall components can be realized in the 3D printing process as a result,” says Herzig.
The machine enables the processing of materials such as stainless steel, titanium, aluminum, nickel-based alloys and other metals.
Focus on aerospace
With the acquisition of the SLM 800, M&H CNC Technik is able to produce high-quality, complex and customized components for customers in various industries such as aerospace, automotive, medical and tooling, as well as energy technology.
“Complex aerospace parts in particular – such as components for the nose landing gear – can be produced with high precision using the SLM 800,” says Herzig.
“3D metal printing is a forward-looking technology that can be used in a variety of industries. In contrast to conventional manufacturing methods, 3D metal printing offers high precision, the ability to produce complex geometries and fast production speeds,” explains Herzig. These advantages make 3D metal printing “an attractive option for the production of prototypes, small series or even large-format components,” says the 3D printing expert.
