The E-Plus 3D EP-M260 is an industrial SLM 3D printer designed for efficient production of high-quality metal parts for aerospace, automotive, engineering, and other industries. The machine is equipped with a single or dual 500W / 1000W fiber laser and ensures reliable and highly productive printing with various metal and metal alloy powders.
To achieve homogeneous part properties throughout the entire build volume and efficient smoke and splash removal, the machine features optimized gas flow management and filtration system. The EP-M260 maximum build rate of 35 cm³/h increases up to 55 cm³/h with a dual laser system equipped. To ensure reliable, safe operation, the build chamber is tightly sealed, the oxygen concentration is kept below 100 ppm during printing and can be monitored in real time. Due to the scanning speed of up to 8 m/s and optimized recoating strategy, the printer ensures time-efficient operation, while its modular design without the need to stop operation during filter changing reduces possible downtime.
The EP-M260 is a modular system, including printing, filtration, and control units, which greatly facilitates installation and maintenance of the machine.
The EP-M260 can print layers with a thickness ranging from 20 to 120 microns, allowing for precise print setting adjustment depending on a certain application and required print quality and level of detail. Single or dual laser system with a spot size of 70–100 microns ensures highly accurate and fast printing. The integrated software provides the possibility to divide the model into sections and apply different process parameters to each of them, thus allowing for building complex parts with required properties in various areas.
Aluminum alloy, 180 x 70 x 235 mm, printing time 32 h
In718, 134 x 70 x 21 mm, printing time 98 h
The machine prints with metal and metal alloy powders that are suitable for direct manufacturing of high-quality metal components with various properties. It can process titanium, aluminum, and nickel-based alloys, maraging steel, stainless steel, cobalt chrome and copper alloys, and others.
The build volume of 266 x 266 x 390 mm is ideal for creating medium-size models or batches of smaller items in one printing session. High productivity combined with a decent build chamber size make the EP-M260 a good choice for the industries requiring series manufacturing of high-quality metal parts.
The EP-M260 is operated via an integrated control unit with a user-friendly interface, real-time monitoring and adjustment of printing parameters, and fully automatic one-click printing function. The software calculates the estimated processing time and generates a printing report when the printing is over.
The proprietary EP-Hatch processing software allows using optimized scanning strategies to reduce print times. EP-Hatch can be integrated with the Siemens NX software for improved production efficiency.
