FF-420Q Selective laser melting technology (SLM)


Selective laser melting (SLM) is an innovative rapid prototyping manufacturing process. After 3D CAD drawings are processed by special software, many parameters such as layering, laser path, laser power and scanning speed are generated. After all kinds of parameters are introduced into the equipment, the industrial computer is used as the core control system to control the optical system with high precision and high transmittance to sweep the laser beam generated by the fiber laser on the molding plane, and the metal powder in the scanning part absorbs the laser energy to melt and mold, and the precision screw rod controls the molding platform to descend, and the powder spreading device spreads the powder again, and the laser scans again, and the high-quality workpiece is finally obtained.
The workpiece is made of metal powder of 15 -45 microns after complete melting in a strictly controlled inert gas protection environment. When scanning in layers, the molding thickness of each layer varies from 20 microns to 100 microns. The formed workpiece can achieve good mechanical properties and compactness.
FF-420Q (metal 3D printer) is a brand-new product, which is compatible with different specifications of powder, and the molding environment has low oxygen content. It is also equipped with efficient bidirectional powder spreading technology and variable speed powder spreading, which improves the molding efficiency by more than 50%. Z-axis closed-loop system, ultra-high precision, positioning accuracy of 5 microns. High-efficiency atmosphere control system, automatic oxygen content and pressure control, automatic detection of filter life, automatic switching after exhaustion.
