SLM 280 2.0

Flexible, safe and efficient. Up to 80% higher volume build-up.

With a build envelope of 280 x 280 x 365 mm³ and patented multi-beam technology, the SLM 280 2.0 enables the manufacture of individual metal components based on CAD data for series production and one-off production with individual parameters.


Patented bidirectional powder coating helps to reduce the manufacturing time of individually manufactured metal build parts. New gas flow removes soot and particle concentrations more effectively to achieve constant condition in the build chamber.


An extensive monitoring system that has been developed specifically for the SLM process enables a high level of process control and as a result, a high level of quality for the build parts.


Feature Header

The optimal approach for reliable metal part production and prototypes. Outstanding productivity and quality.

2+1 Filter Solution

Equipped with a 2+1 filter solution that increases the filter lifetime. The additional second stage fine filter ensures an extremely low particle concentration.

Processor Software

The SLM 280 2.0 is an Open Parameter System that enables the user to customize and create their own parameters and optimize scanning and exposure parameters.

Powder Tank

The use of a large powder tank (40l) with two bottles (each 5l) enables the execution of a complete production process in full height with a 1.6-way overdose.
