The two NXG Xll 600s machines could help the company make 3D printed parts at an improved rate and with better quality.
In one instance, a large Inconel shrouded impeller with an exposure area of more than 50% and a weight of 174 kg was built successfully in under a week, the companies say.
"It is very clear that future flight and launch OEMs will depend on complex mechanical systems enabled by additive technology," said Brian Neff, Sintavia founder and CEO. "The sheer size and efficiency of the NXG Xll 600 platform will greatly accelerate this profound modality shift.”
The NXG XII 600 contains twelve 1000W lasers and the industry's largest build envelope of 600 x 600 x 600mm³, which enables the production of large-scale components that were previously unable to be made, SLM said.
