Laser Lines’ full suite of technology on show at Southern Manufacturing 2023

Laser Lines will be exhibiting a large range of additive manufacturing and laser marking technologies on stand E150 at Southern Manufacturing 2023, from the 7th – 9th February at FIVE, Farnborough.

3D Printing solutions

Laser Lines will be presenting some of its 3D printers at Southern Manufacturing. These will include 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.

Supporting metal powders such as Stainless Steel, Super Alloys, Tooling Steels, Aluminium, Titanium and Bronze, the XM200C is ready to make your part in a fraction of the time it takes using traditional casting. Plus, its open platform means that qualified users can develop their own printing parameters or use their own powder. It is simple to use with an easy touchscreen user face, which makes it easy to load files, set up build and monitor jobs

Also, on show will be two printers from Stratasys – the F370 and the J55 Prime. The Stratasys F370 is the perfect additive manufacturing machine for more demanding projects. With support for two model materials and two support materials, it can be left to run for extended periods. This feature can be used to guarantee overnight, unattended printing by installing matching spools in advance.

The perfect combination of class-leading performance and offering a generous build envelope of 355 x 254 x 355mm, the F370 is incredibly quiet and can be used with industry-leading FDM materials, including PLA, PC-ABS, ABS-CF10, Diran 410MF07 and FDM TPU 92A.

The Stratasys J55 Prime is a full-colour Polyjet 3D printer that you can add to your organisation, without the need for a specialised operator or a dedicated room for it. For anyone that wants to cut down the time it takes to prototype a product, the Stratasys J55 Prime can print models efficiently, in over 500,000 colours.

The compact 3D printer fits into any standard office, classroom or studio space with ease. With no unpleasant smell, toxic fumes or noisy machinery to deal with, you can work as normal – even if sat right next to it.

Laser Marking Solutions

Laser Lines will also be showing a Sisma laser welder,  Synrad CO2 lasers and its Lasermark PRIMARY solution on its stand. Lasermark PRIMARY is Laser Lines’ entry-level laser marking system that uses a Datalogic Ulyxe laser. This unit perfectly matches safety, functionality and a small footprint with value for money. Suitable for installation with a variety of lasers from our DPSS and Fibre ranges, this system features a manual Z-height adjustment, interlocking door, laser safety glass and options for fan or extraction-based air removal.

Dave Earl, Business Manager for Industrial Lasers, says: “We are really looking forward to exhibiting at Southern Manufacturing. It is always a great event to catch up with existing customers and talk about marking and production challenges for new customers. Our stand will be manned by our experienced marking and welding specialists who will be on hand to discuss your application needs and Laser Lines’ enhanced capabilities to provide turnkey marking, welding and cutting solutions.”
