Reduced manufacturing costs with powerful 3D printing solutions from Laser Lines at MACH

This year’s MACH (NEC, 15th – 19th April) sees Laser Lines with two stands at the show demonstrating its cutting-edge laser and 3D printing solutions.

Laser Lines has been helping companies reduce manufacturing and development costs by offering a comprehensive portfolio of 3D printers, additive manufacturing systems and industrial lasers for 50 years. On its stands at MACH, it will be showcasing a range of 3D printing technologies and there will be live demonstrations of laser welding and marking.

Stand number 17-431 – Additive Manufacturing Solutions

On its additive manufacturing stand, Laser Lines will be showcasing a range of 3D printing technologies including the Stratasys F370CR FDM and J55 Polyjet printers, the XactMetal XM200C and the Ultimaker S7.

Stratasys F370cr Open With PartThe Stratasys F370CR is the perfect FDM additive manufacturing machine for more demanding projects that require stronger, stiffer parts with greater impact resistance.

With a large build volume, the F370CR can process high performance, composite materials, such as FDM Nylon-CF10 , which combines nylon and carbon fibre to produce parts that are 50% stronger and 20% stiffer, while remaining lightweight. The F370CR is perfect for creating jigs and fixtures, which it can do so much faster than when using traditional methods. FDM Nylon-CF10 is ideal for creating customised tools with the power and flexibility that additive manufacturing affords.

For companies that want to reduce the time it takes to prototype a product, the Stratasys J55 full colour polyjet printer can print models efficiently in over 500,000 colours. With a compact footprint, the Stratasys J55 3D printer’s multi-material printing ability produces models that look and feel like the real thing, helping designers to improve their designs faster and reducing misunderstandings during the sign-off process. The Stratasys J55 saves 97% in time and 80% in cost compared to traditional modelling techniques.

Xm200c Product ShotAlso on show will be the XM200C metal powder-bed fusion 3D printer from Xact Metal, which is a compact and affordable system that can produce quality metal parts from a variety of metal powders at a low cost. Bringing a new level of price and performance to metal 3D printing for entry-level operators for the first time, the XM200C is perfect for universities, prototyping laboratories and small to medium enterprises that require multiple machines.

With a maximum build volume of 330 x 240 x 300mm, the Ultimaker S7 combines a large build volume with an integrated air manager to improve environmental control and to better regulate the temperature of the build chamber.

A flexible PEI coated build plate makes it easier than ever to remove prints, while new sensors and placement pins make it simple to put the build plate back in place. With true set and forget technology, this machine produces excellent parts without the hassle of other machines.

Stand number 14:421 – Industrial laser solutions

Laser Lines is continually expanding the range of lasers it provides. Working closely with leading providers, it offers the widest selection of welding and marking lasers in the UK. Some of these include desktop welding lasers, which are perfect for smaller-scale projects; open and closed XYZ systems for exceptional control and accuracy; manual and 5-Axis CNC for robotic welding as well as integrable lasers for enhanced efficiency and productivity.

With its enormous range of laser marking solutions in desktop, standalone or integrable formats to suit different work environments, Laser Lines has plenty of options to suit application and budget.

Sisma 150

Users can achieve the most precise and detailed marking with Nanosecond / Picosecond Marking lasers or choose from MOPA / Q-switched Marking for flexibility and versatility in the marking process. Laser Lines also offers accurate and consistent marking with the Through the Lens Vision system and for those looking for maximum productivity and efficiency, Robot Tended Systems is now part of the portfolio.

This year at MACH, Laser Lines will be demonstrating the Sisma LMDt welding solution in a CE approved Class 1 workstation live. Plus, it will be displaying a broad range of Sisma lasers including the newest product in its offering, the Sisma EasyGo. Other offerings on show from the portfolio will be the Laserline LDM Laser Rack, Laserline OTS Optics and a Novanta CO2 laser, a Sisma LMB welding laser, LC Laser Cleaner and LC Laser Welder.

Mark Tyrtania, Sales Director at Laser Lines, says: “MACH gives us the chance to speak to businesses directly about the challenges they are facing, as well as being a great opportunity for us to discuss the vast range of quality products that we supply and the benefits they offer, including a full portfolio of 3D printing technologies and industrial lasers.”

With 50 years’ experience in the manufacturing sector, Laser Lines focuses on empowering industries with cutting-edge laser and 3D printing solutions. Experts will be on hand for the duration of the show to answer any questions about industrial lasers or additive manufacturing technologies that MACH visitors might have.
