The HBD E500 is an industrial SLM (Selective Laser Melting) machine capable of producing high-quality prototypes and functional parts in a variety of materials. It comes as a comprehensive, fully customizable solution with a number of auxiliaries that meets most demanding metal 3D printing needs while still being an affordable entry point for SLM technology. The machine provides 24/7 operation and is able to continuously print end-use parts in small batch production runs.
The HBD E500 is available in two versions — with a dual or triple laser configuration. Both models feature a large build chamber that is perfectly combined with their outstanding sintering capacity. Thanks to the scanning speed of 10000 mm/s, the build process is characterized by elevated productivity. Unique marble material used for construction ensures long-term stability of high precision. The flexible multi-purpose software with a set of user-friendly functions allows for smooth operation. To make it even better, you can opt for additional equipment available for optional order.
Apart from the mentioned benefits, the HBD E500 boasts a number of advanced features making for a simplified, effective, and completely safe working process. The list includes intelligent recoating monitoring, closed-loop powder management system, laser stitching, optimized puriﬁcation circulation and gas ﬂow, real-time status light indicators, sealed glove structure, door open detection system, atmosphere purification, automated monitoring of oxygen content, and easy access to the printing area contributing to a safe environment.
Due to its advanced capabilities, automated operation, and great forming size, the HBD E500 SLM system is particularly ideal for such demanding and intense spheres as automotive and aerospace. The technology behind the machine allows for simplified research and development stages as well as substantial time, cost, and weight saving compared to traditional manufacturing techniques. Furthermore, SLM-printed items boast improved aerodynamics, stability, and strength. Thus, the machine is perfect for professional use in aviation, automotive, aerospace, defense, mold, energy, medical, research and development, jewelry, prototyping, and more.
The HBD E500 can sinter layers with a minimum thickness of 30 microns that can be further adjusted to the user’s needs. The printer is equipped with two or three 500W lasers depending on the version selected as well as a powerful SCANLAB galvo system with a minimum scanning track width of 70 microns to ensure high accuracy up to 0.05 mm and rich detail of printed items.
With the HBD E500, you can create unique models of complex geometries unachievable with traditional materials and simplify the manufacturing process by directly printing your final design in precious metals instead of producing wax castings.
The HBD E500 SLM system works with a wide selection of metal powders with different properties that suit various applications. The machine is fully compatible with stainless steel, cobalt-chrome alloy, tool steel, titanium alloy, high-temperature alloy, aluminum alloy, hastelloy, and some refractory metals like Tungsten and Tantalum. This open system lets the printer build both prototypes and end-use parts without any issues.
The HBD E500 SLM 3D printer is engineered with an impressive forming space of 16.9 x 20.5 x 20.5 inches (430 x 520 x 520 mm). It lets you print fairly large items as a whole, without splitting them into several parts, or small to medium objects in batches. This makes for sufficient production speed and effective material usage.
The HBD E500 can be operated via a built-in control unit with a clear and user-friendly interface.
The SLM system is supplied with the independently developed multifunctional HBD Build Expert slicing software. The program provides a variety of smart tools for data slicing, path planning, intelligent measurement, material development, printing parameter editing, multi-laser coordinating, and other handy functions.
The HBD E500 supports the use of Materialise Magics allowing for advanced data and build preparation. Due to this software solution, you can program builds efficiently by using such innovative features as part orientation, support creation, part nesting checks, smart slicing algorithms, and more.
To tailor the machine to your specific production needs, you can also order optional items from the list below:
