Concept Laser releases world’s biggest laser 3D printer for metal

Germany’s Concept Laser has released what is reportedly the world’s largest selective laser melting 3D printer for metal powders.

3Dprintingindustry.com reports that the company’s new X line 2000R has a build chamber of 800 x 400 x 500 mm, an increase of 27 per cent on its X Line 1000 machine’s build volume.

Powder in the chamber of the new machine is melted by a dual laser system, with both rays 1,000 watts.

Melbourne’s Monash University boasts the first installed unit of Concept Laser’s previous biggest model, the X Line 1000R.

Concept Laser’s machines are used in aerospace, automotive and other industries, with Airbus a major client. Last week it was reported that Germany’s Mapal would be using CL’s LaserCUSING machines for series production of insert drills.
