SLM 280 2.0

Ideal for medium to high volume metal part production and prototypes, the next generation SLM®280 2.0 Selective Laser Melting System offers a 280 x 280 x 365 mm build envelope. With patented multi-beam technology pioneered by SLM Solutions, the SLM®280 can be equipped with up to two 700W fiber lasers. The integrated SLM® Build Processor and open software architecture offers the freedom of controlling system parameters to run standard builds or optimize to meet strict production needs and gain a competitive advantage.

Next Generation of Additive Manufacturing Production

The fully new designed SLM 280 V2.0 with more than 90 improvements.

Higher part quality thanks to improved gas flow system

Build envelope of 280 x 280 x 365 mm (App. 25% larger build envelope than other mid-size machines)

2 x 400W or 700W Quad laser technology – simultaneously

Higher productivity

  • 20% more productivity due to tougher possible parameter
  • 30% more productivity due to 700Watt Laser option

Overlapping areas with homogenous metal structure

Patented bidirectional recoating system

Build Speed up to 88 cm³/h (Quad – Aluminium Alloy)

Open software architecture

PSV – Powder Sieving & Feeding Station - 90 l powder tank.

The continuous metal powder feeding is done under inert gas atmosphere

Achieve greater component quality for complex, delicate, yet fast part builds. SLM®280 systems regularly achieve 80% higher build rates than competitive single-laser offerings; accomplished by proper laser configuration and SLM Solutions’ bi-directional powder recoating.


This titanium brake caliper weighs only 2,9kg,40% lighter than its machined aluminum counterpart. In total, it is made of 2,213 layers in 45 hours printing - capable of withstanding up to 125 kg per square millimeter before breaking. This brake caliper is 3D printed on SLM 500 with 4 fiber lasers.
