SLM Solutions has been based with its predecessor companies in Lübeck since 1957. With the new building, SLM Solutions Group AG has again confirmed and further consolidated its commitment to Lübeck. The company’s products are used worldwide by customers in the aviation and aerospace industry, the energy sector, health care and the automotive sector.

SLM Solutions is a world-leading provider of metal-based additive manufacturing technology. The company focuses on the development, assembly and sale of machines and integrated system solutions in the field of selective laser melting.

In selective laser melting, a thin layer of metal powder is applied to a substrate plate. Then the powder is melted by means of lasers. After that, the plate is lowered by one thickness layer, and a new layer of powder is applied. This process sequence repeats, and the geometries of the current layer merge with the previous one. When the last layer of the component has been reached, the construction job is completed.
