Rosswag Engineering has announced the acquisition of its third selective laser melting system from SLM Solutions. The third SLM®280 machine delivered to their facility in Pfinztal, Germany, expands their production and development capabilities with the metal additive manufacturing technology.
As a strategic partner of SLM Solutions in the advancement of the selective laser melting technology, Rosswag Engineering also qualifies new alloy powders and parameters by combining the capabilities of their simulation software package, powder atomizer and three SLM®280 machines. With the ability to quickly produce special metal powders, simulate build results, print tests using SLM’s material development module, then post-process and inspect builds in-house, the time to market cycle for new materials is reduced from months to weeks.
So successful is the process developed by the experts at Rosswag that the company was recently the first company certified as metal powder manufacturer by TÜV SÜD Industrie Service GmbH through their audit based on the AD 2000 Code for pressure equipment and the European Pressure Equipment Directive (PED).
