TCT Show 2018: SLM Solutions Shows Machines, Materials and Services

Lübeck, September 24, 2018. SLM Solutions Group AG will present the complete portfolio of metal-based additive manufacturing technology – machinery, materials and services – at the TCT Show 2018. From September 25 to 27, the experts from Northern Germany will show integrated system solutions in the field of selective laser melting at booth P36 in Hall 3 in Birmingham.

The TCT Show is one of the world's leading events focused on 3D manufacturing technologies. In the 23rd year of its existence, it continues to provide insights into 3D printing, additive manufacturing, CAD/CAE, metrology and inspection as well as conventional manufacturing processes such as casting and CNC machining. The TCT Show provides inspiring suggestions for the industry with more than 250 exhibitors, over 80 speakers and many interactive attractions.

SLM Solutions is taking part in Birmingham. With the flexibility of a modular system, a variety of consumables and industry solutions for automotive, research and development, aerospace, power engineering, mechanical and plant engineering, medical and dental engineering, the company continues to set standards in metal-based additive manufacturing technology.

At the TCT Show 2018, SLM Solutions will show the powerful SLM®280 2.0 at booth P36 in Hall 3. The open system provides a range of ways to optimize production processes in line with the respective requirements and develop materials with individually set process parameters. Based on CAD data, metallic components for series production and one-off production can be produced with individual parameters.

The SLM® process provides almost unlimited freedom of design. Another advantage of this technology is the ability to integrate multiple components in one component, as a result of which joining processes can be avoided. Selective laser melting technology gives companies the opportunity to make their production process more efficient and employ higher degrees of freedom in product development.

Uwe Bögershausen, Executive Officer of SLM Solutions Group AG, stated: "We have been a pioneer and technology leader in the field of metal-based additive manufacturing for many years and invest in the research and development of machinery and materials. Together with our manufacturers and other component suppliers, we want to optimize the machines further as well as develop new materials and systems that withstand even higher requirements. Birmingham is an ideal meeting place for this exchange and the regular meeting with our customers and prospects."
