OR Laser has launched a new direct metal additive manufacturing system which it says is “more accessible and more affordable for more companies”.
The company says the Orlas Creator metal additive manufacturing platform is “smarter, simpler, faster and more cost effective than any other metal additive manufacturing system currently available on the market”.
OR Laser says the system uses a “unique” circular build-platform design, which enables up to 30per cent faster production speeds compared with comparable platforms. These speeds are facilitated by a proprietary, rotation-led precision coater blade.
Orlas Creator also has “flexible process capabilities”, which allows users to individually customize key process parameters provided by the open platform strategy and comprehensive software suite developed in-house and negating the need for third-party software, says the company.
OR Laser adds that the system is conpatible with cloud manufacturing: tablet-based remote control and monitoring of multiple machines enables the active monitoring of key process parameters from any location.
