GE releases new version of Concept Laser M2 cusing

GE Additive has released an update to its Concept Laser M2 cusing and M2 cusing Multilaser machines to provide customers with an increased level of productivity and reliability, as well as lower overall operating costs. New machines are available to order now.

The M2 cusing family is the workhorse of the GE Additive product portfolio and used across a wide range of industries, such as aerospace, automotive, medical and dental and is well-suited to scenarios and applications where industrialization is a key outcome, especially for medium-sized parts.

Key upgrade features include: (i) A new gas flow system backed by redundant oxygen monitoring and a closed inert gas circuit to drive better overall part quality, due to the flow-improved build chamber. (ii) A new cooling unit for optical components. (iii) Higher part quality and reliability are possible to a more tightly controlled build environment. (iv) A higher build chamber with a z-axis of 350 mm and newly designed heating. Precision was a key goal with these changes and with advanced closed-loop control, a higher degree of accuracy on the z-positioning can be achieved.
