Concept Laser’s M2 Cusing laser melting system features a fully integrated structure that eliminates external components for the laser and filter system. With a 250 x 250 x 280 mm build envelope and 200-W laser (optional 400-W), the machine is well-suited for the production of small to medium-sized components.

In addition to improving accessibility and reducing space requirements, the self-contained system offers a new filter design with increased surface area of 20 m2 and fixed tubing. The frequency with which the filter has to be replaced also has been reduced, increasing the overall throughput of the system.

Multi-laser versions of the M2 Cusing are available, offering either two 200-W lasers or two 400-W lasers. This multi-laser option also is available for the company’s largest machine, the X line 1000R. The company expects to release an X line 2000R model in the near future, which will be fitted with two 1,000-W lasers.
