O.R. Lasertechnologie Introduces ORLAS CREATOR 3D Metal Printer for SMEs

German manufacturer of industrial laser systems, O.R. Lasertechnologie GmbH (OR LASER), will unveil its new direct metal additive manufacturing platform to visitors at the upcoming formnext exhibition in Frankfurt next week.

The ORLAS CREATOR metal 3D printer is specifically targeted at small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs), particularly in the jewellery, dentistry, and medical sectors as well as for smaller engineering firms and laboratories. Due to the cost of large metal AM machines, these companies have so far not been able to afford such systems.

The printer’s build platform is original in design and functionality, an innovative blade design ensures smooth operation and increased build speed that produce parts up to 30% faster according to OR LASER. It utilises a cartridge materials handling system for the powder; cartridges for the open material system can also be supplied by OR LASER. Parts produced on the ORLAS CREATER feature resolution that is comparable with higher spec machines on the market.

While 80% of the printer’s hardware is produced in house, the software has also been specifically developed, with no third party software required to run the system.

Visitors of formnext can have a first look at the metal 3D printer at OR LASERS’s Booth (Hall 3.1, E70). First printers are expected to be delivered in Q1 2017.
