Concept Laser launches new machine architecture

The Industry 4.0 strategy is having a tangible impact on 3D metal printing. With the new 3D metal printing machine technology and the vision of the “AM Factory of Tomorrow” that lies behind it, Concept Laser is currently raising the Additive Manufacturing of metals to the level of a “smart factory”.

This fundamentally new, modular and flexible approach enables automated, digitized and interlinked industrial series production. The basic idea is to decouple “pre-production” and “production.” Both tasks can now be carried out in parallel and physically separately from one another. With an ambitious and consistent focus on optimizing the digital process chain, the new machine architecture from Concept Laser promises to set a new milestone in industrial 3D metal printing. With the integration into the machine environment, decoupling and automation of process stages, the lead times until the finished 3D part is ready are massively reduced.

Oliver Edelmann, Vice President Global Sales & Marketing: “As a trend-setter, Concept Laser is once again providing different solutions to the competition. And this is a good thing too. With its new machine architecture, Concept Laser will again set a milestone and benchmark in the Additive Manufacturing of metallic parts. This approach follows completely new paths and enables economical series production. We want to significantly enhance the added value for our users.”
