    Key Features

    Three light indicators to easily show the different machine stages

    HBD 350 is set on strong locking caster wheels, allowing the machine to be relocated easily then locked in place

    Door open detection system, alerting the user when the door is open or closed, providing a crucial safety aspect to the process

    Innovative systems. Atmosphere purification system which automatically monitors the oxygen content and recycles clean and collected air. High speed deoxygenation system which also includes high precision oxygen content monitoring

    Easy access to the printing area with reduced powder exposure to yourself or the environment with the sealed powder hatch, allowing you to de-powder parts easily and add more powder if needed

    Real time printing status showing you information including current layer, build parameters and many more

    Use the industry standard Materialise Magic's software with your HBD System, available as part of the complete HBD system. Materialise Magics features intelligent slicing, printing checks and error detection, support generation, intuitive part orientation functions and many more

    Intelligent powder feeding system automatically feeds powder from the top rather than the bottom, also features two way powder recoating

    Ensure printing consistency with adjustable Z direction focus on the dual lasers, water and air cooled temperature control which maintains long-term stability

    Advantages of HBD SLM Technology

    Mould & Die-Traditional manufacturing methods for ,oulds and dies cause uneven cooling due to geometric restrictions. SLM can produce more complex designs with conformal cooling chanels. These will achive fast, uniform cooling and better results in the end part. The build volume of HBD 350 is specially optimised for mould and die production, giving you a greater freedom in design and complexity of part geometry.

    Aerospace- 3D Printing in aerospace allows for substantial weight saving. Parts can be manufactured with internal lattice structures to reduce weight and stress and improve stability and strength. Topology optimisation can be easily schieved with SLM technology. End use pars can be printed in one process compared to traditional manufacturing methods which require the production of moulds or tooling.
