SLM and Honeywell to qualify new AM parameters

SLM Solutions announced recently that it is working with Honeywell, a user of additive manufacturing technologies with extensive knowledge across various platforms and applications, to help qualify new additive manufacturing parameters that enable printing at increased thicknesses. The partnership will help both companies reduce printing times and costs.

As part of the partnership, Honeywell’s Aerospace business will begin qualification efforts for aluminum builds using increased layer thicknesses of 60 and 90 micron on the SLM®500. SLM Solutions will provide their standard aluminum parameter sets for Honeywell to complete material qualification utilizing the quad-laser systems to achieve optimal material properties.
