Equipped with a green laser for processing pure copper, copper alloys and highly reflective materials.
Thanks to the green laser, you can process highly reflective materials such as pure copper or precious metals: the ideal solution for the electronics and industrial components sector.
ALWAYS THE RIGHT SPOT
An optical system equipped with a beam expander to adjust the size of the laser beam according to requirements, combined with automatic variation of the laser’s focal spot on the platform, performed by software for an optimal result.
Print Green 150 is Prima Additive's Powder Bed Fusion solution with a green laser for processing highly reflective materials such as pure copper.
It has a cylindrical building volume of Ø150mm and H = 160mm and a configuration with open parameters.
Like the other machines in the 150 Series, it is equipped with a system for adjusting the focal point of the laser beam as required, so that parameters are always optimised to suit the application. It also has a dual pre-heating system that allows the surface of the powder bed to be heated both from above and below via a heated plate, thus allowing the powder bed to reach a temperature of up to 300°C.
The high-speed coaxial pyrometer monitors the temperature in real time and 2 cameras monitor the process and the powder bed. The system has open parameters, suitable for process and material research and development.
The system has optimised gas flow for minimum nitrogen or argon consumption and material can be changed in less than two hours thanks to modular components.
The Print Green 150 is equipped with a 200W single mode green fibre laser. A chiller unit is included to cool the green laser source.
A single line width of 0.1mm and a minimum layer thickness of 0.02mm can be achieved for high precision. A reliable and compact optical scanning system offers high processing speeds and various scanning strategies.
Intuitive, intelligent control software allows rapid orientation of parts and defining of machine functions by the operator. With an open, easy-to-use process parameter management tool, you can also change key print parameters, select your scanning strategy and export machine-readable files.
The system is equipped with a filter unit for recirculating gas within the working area. The filter unit maintains a high level of cleanliness and is easily adjustable thanks to the control installed on the interface. Gas flow within the chamber can be modified to optimise flow as required.
Materials: aluminium alloys, copper alloys, pure copper.
Prima Additive helps you choose the right material for each application
Prima Additive recommends and offers a wide range of metallic powders, tested to ensure product quality and repeatable mechanical properties. The process parameters were fine-tuned to the specifications and behaviour of the powders during printing, enabling excellent (re)production of the components. Thanks to its portfolio of services, Prima Additive can provide support to customers to evaluate and select the most suitable powder for their applications and needs.
Metal additive manufacturing offers endless possibilities for companies like yours, but often when facing challenges such as implementing a new technology within your own context, what you need is the right team mate.
