SLM 500

Efficiently produce large complex objects.
The way to production technology in additive manufacturing. 

SLM 500 provides a large build envelope of 500 x 280 x 365 mm³ and patented multi-beam technology. This machine with high productivity is perfectly suited for series production of complex build parts and it is specifically designed for use in the production environment. An extremely comprehensive basic configuration and the large choice of options enable application-oriented machine configuration.


four fiber
lasers (4x 400W or 4x 700W) are in action simultaneously, increasing the build-up rate by up to 90 %


With three times higher gas flow, the robust SLM machine produces parts with the highest density and surface quality. Soot is removed from the process chamber efficiently and reliably, even for the longest duration builds.


Feature Header

Create complex and large build parts efficiently. A step towards production technology in additive manufacturing

Part Removal Station

This useful component of the machine is optimally suited for batch production, and serves for removing the excess powder from the build cylinder and the build parts.

Quad Laser Technology

The universally usable SLM 500 Selective Laser Melting Machine is a high-performance winner, thanks to its large build envelope and quad laser technology.

Bi-directional Powder Coater

Reduced 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.

Processor Software

The SLM 500 is an Open Parameter System that enables the user to customize and create their own parameters and optimize scanning and exposure parameters.


Powder Tank

Fully automated powder management located between the SLM Machine and the Powder Supply Unit (PSX). The metal powder is continually sieved and fed to the construction process.
This eliminates time-consuming manual filling.
