SLM Solutions Concludes Major Order for at least 37 Million Euros at formnext

(PresseBox) (Lübeck, ) The first day at formnext 2017 has been highly successful for SLM Solutions Group AG. The North Germans were able to convince an Asian company in the energy sector of the performance of the SLM 800 presented for the first time and received a large order for it worth at least 37 million euros.

At formnext in Frankfurt, SLM Solutions is providing deeper insights at its trade fair booth E70 in Hall 3.0 as to how additive manufacturing can already be integrated into industrial production today. The new SLM 800 machine concept enables integration into automated and fully automated production processes.

Already on the first trade fair day, SLM Solutions scored a major order for 20 new machines of the type SLM 800. The machines are going to a customer from the energy sector with headquarters in Asia. In addition to the machines of the type SLM 800, systems of the type SLM 500 may also be ordered, which could further increase the order volume.

Uwe Bögershausen, board member of SLM Solutions Group AG, explains: “Technological integration into production processes has succeeded with the SLM 800. The SLM 800 is very convincing for our industrial customers. We are very pleased that we have been able to get such impressive confirmation of our development steps on the first day of the fair. The machines from this order will be continuously delivered until the end of 2019.” Henner Schöneborn, board member of SLM Solutions Group AG, adds: “We have reached another milestone towards automation of manufacturing processes with the SLM 800.

Technologically, we want to become the market leader thanks to total manufacturing integration with both existing factory and production processes as well as Industry 4.0 connectivity over the next few years. In addition to the size of the construction chamber, outstanding component quality and our market-leading multi-laser technology are the convincing and proven parameters for our customers."

SLM Solutions expects more positive feedback from customers over the next trade fair days.

SLM Solutions Group AG has set the course for the next development step of additive manufacturing technology and the company. Technologically, the development of SLM Solutions is going increasingly in the direction of integrating manufacturing processes. International customers also see this progress, customers who have substantial interest in long-term commercial and development partnerships.
