The Additive Manufacturing is equipped with a Direct Metal Laser Sintering Machine, EOSINT M270 Xtended, and a sand-blasting machine, SD9 Northblast
In this lab the goal is to realize the fundamental structural parts of the finger exoskeleton in different materials: lightweight aluminium alloys, high strength titanium alloys, new composites and smart materials developed for Additive Manufacturing.
Facilities in detail
EOSINT M 270 Xtended
This machine fuses metal powder into a solid part by melting it locally using a focused laser beam. The parts are built up additively layer by layer. Even complex geometries are created directly from 3D CAD data, fully automatically, in just a few hours and without any tooling. It is a net-shape process, producing parts with good surface quality and mechanical properties.
Wide variety of materials can be processed by this machine, ranging from light alloys via steels to superalloys.
- Effective building volume: 250x250x215 mm.
Sand-blasting machine, SD9 Norblast
This machine allows enhancing quickly the finishing aspect and the mechanical properties of the surface metal components realized by the DMLS machine.
