Concept Laser M Line

The M Line offers an unprecedented level of automation and innovation, allowing economical series production on an industrial scale.

Economical serial production

The M Line offers a modular machine architecture that enables practical, economical series production on an industrial scale.

The modular machine technology concept physically decouples the Laser Processing System (LPS) and the Material Handling Station (MHS) units used for upstream and downstream stages of the production process and part production.

These tasks can now be carried out in parallel and physically separate from one another thanks to the modular architecture.

The Material Handling Station

The handling of material is based on an integrated powder cycle in the MHS under inert gas atmosphere (Nitrogen or Argon). It is combined with the concept of separated modules and an automated lid system to allow contactless and inerted powder handling during operation.

The protective atmosphere also avoids aging of powder material caused by oxygen ingress and humidity. After a build job, the lidded build and overflow modules are moved into the inerted MHS. The operator can remove powder from both modules with the suction lance. The used powder can be recovered and reprocessed by the integrated sieving station of the MHS and loaded into a new powder module if needed.
