MSV 2018: SLM Solutions to showcase wide range of metal-based additive manufacturing technology in Brno

Lübeck, October 1, 2018. SLM Solutions Group AG will present its wide range of metal-based additive manufacturing technology at the International Engineering Fair in Brno, Czech Republic, from October 1 - 5, 2018. The leading manufacturer from northern Germany will use MSV 2018 to showcase its integrated system solutions for selective laser melting at PAV A1/003 and PAV P/115.

This year marks the 60th anniversary of the International Engineering Fair (MSV). From October 1 - 5, over 1,600 exhibitors and 80,000 visitors from all over the world will gather in Brno for the Czech Republic’s largest industrial convention. The event has become the perfect platform for key sectors of the mechanical and electrical engineering industries to present themselves. Alongside materials and components for industrial machinery, electronics, automation and metrology, there will be greater focus on sensors, robotics and additive manufacturing.

SLM Solutions will present its metal-based SLM® manufacturing technology at its two exhibition spaces PAV A1/003 and PAV P/115. This technology is increasingly being used in the automotive and toolmaking industries, providing almost unlimited design freedom when it comes to producing complete tools and orders. From components for engines, transmissions and chassis to tire mold segments and internal cooling ducts, SLM® technology is developing new ways to increase both productivity and quality.

By exhibiting at the fair, SLM Solutions aims to promote and further develop business and technological partnerships. The experts for 3D printing will present the complete process chain (closed loop) of generative manufacturing, from data generation and melting to powder recovery and reprocessing.

Dr. Axel Schulz, Chief Sales Officer at SLM Solutions Group AG, explained: “We have been a leader in metal-based additive manufacturing for many years. There is a great deal of interest in the automotive and mechanical engineering sectors in the Czech Republic. With a good mixture of knowledge transfer and networking, we want to continue boosting the profile of additive manufacturing in this country here at MSV 2018.”
