Key Features

Circular printing platform of 159mm diameter. The round build plate with three locator areas simplifies the build plate installation and levelling process

Three light indicators to easily show the different machine stages

HBD 150 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

Advantages of HBD SLM Technology

Digital dentistry- Save time by 3D Printing your dental crowns and completely eliminate the process of waxing, embedding and casting. SLM Printed crowns are more cost effective than traditional processes, hidden costs are significantly reduced by automating the process and eliminating the uncontrollable factors such as personnel turnover, training and error. The HBD 150 can be used to print  crowns, bridges and partial frameworks.
