AL3D-METAL – small metal 3D printer with big possibilities

The AL3D-METAL 200 3D printer from Alpha Laser offers fast, precise and safe production of complex objects, with a small footprint. Measuring 600 by 617 mm, the AL3D-METAL 200 makes it suitable for space-constrained companies that require high quality and precision in their manufacturing process. It is particularly useful for jewellery manufacturing companies that often require precisie 3D printing of precious metals such as gold, platinum and silver. The printer will also prove useful for laboratories and research institutes with small office spaces.

Safe use of the 3D metal printer – closed circulation of printing powders

The closed powder circuit in the AL3D-METAL printer increases operational safety, as the operator does not come into contact with the powder during the entire printing process. 3D metal printing often uses printing methods based on Selective Laser Melting (SLM) or Electron Beam Melting (EBM) technology. In these processes, a metal powder, such as stainless steel, aluminium or titanium, is gradually applied in layers and melted using a laser or electron beam. This allows for the gradual creation of a three-dimensional object. 3D printing with metal powder generates large amounts of fragmented dust, which can be inhaled or even penetrate the skin. For metal printers, particles of a few micrometres or even less in diameter are standard – some printers can use powder with particle diameters of 15-45 micrometres. These are the sizes that allow them to easily penetrate human body barriers and enter the body. The AL3D-METAL printer has developed a printing system that is completely safe for the user, due to the lack of contact with the powder at every stage – from filling the cardridges, through printing, to cleaning the print. A dedicated filling station is included, which has an isolated chamber with protective gloves, where print cleaning also takes place.

High-quality prints from the 3D metal printer AL3D-METAL

With a 200 W IPG fibre laser and an F-theta lens made of quartz , the AL3D-METAL 200 has high melting power and ensures optimal printing results. The printer’s fine laser spot of 50 µm and high beam quality make it suitable for the production of highly accurate and complex geometries, providing maximum design freedom. Thanks to its small size, the printer can be installed almost anywhere, Laser melting in the powder bed enables material densities > 99.9 % – regardless of whether certified ALPHA LASER powder with accompanying parameters or independent material compositions are used. Producing metal objects with the AL3D-Metal printer saves resources, as additive manufacturing enables high powder yields and recycling.

Advantages of the AL3D-METAL 200 metal 3D printer

Safe working thanks to the closed powder circuit: No contact with powder during the entire process (cartridge filling, printing process and removal of the printed piece) – in our opinion, this is the most important advantage for the health of those operating the printer.

Innovative cartridge system: quick powder change, short cleaning time of the system (only approx. 15 minutes), different cartridge sizes (two different cartridge diameters with three different heights).

Service-friendly: the mechanism is located in the cartridge, so there is no machine downtime – simply return the cartridge for repair, insert a replacement cartridge and continue working.

All-in-one software: includes everything you need for the best printing results, from model generation to post-production support.

Resource saving: Metal production with high efficiency, plus the possibility to recycle unused powder.

Closed gas circuit: Gas consumption < 5 l/min. Cleaning function at 20 l/min floods the working chamber in approximately 10 minutes.

Multi-material printing: various materials can be combined.

Filter system: available for reactive materials and precious metals

Small and compact: printer base is 600 x 617 mm

Freedom of design and geometry: Maximum individuality in design and geometry

Printing technology: laser melting on a powder bed achieves a material density of >99.9%.
