Beam-IT and SLM Solutions have signed an agreement to deepen their long-term cooperation. Beam-IT will expand its product portfolio with two Selective Laser Melting (SLM) machines to aid production and work on the development of new parameters. Beam-IT’s equipment portfolio will include an additional SLM280 machine with twin lasers and a quad laser SLM500, bringing their total of SLM machines to seven.
In the joint venture project, Beam-IT and SLM Solutions will work on further material parameters for the nickel-based alloys IN939 and IN718, focusing on certain material properties. According to Beam-IT, targeted parameter sets are necessary to achieve optimal results during the SLM process and the company’s technical experience as a metal additive manufacturing user will enable them to develop parameters with high-quality characteristics.
Kamer Geyisi, sales manager at SLM Solutions says, "Beam-IT has a high technical expertise and is working with the Selective Laser Melting technology every day. As a partner to our customers throughout the entire additive manufacturing process chain, SLM Solutions is pleased to share our knowledge with Beam-IT and believe that we will also benefit from their experience with the technology. This partnership approach benefits both our companies but will also help advance implementation of the technology throughout the entire market.”
