SLM Solutions and Honeywell Aerospace partner to 3D print parts at increased layer thicknesses

December 03, 2019 / Sam Davies

SLM Solutions is working with Honeywell Aerospace to qualify new additive manufacturing parameters that facilitate 3D printing at increased layer thicknesses. The partnership will see Honeywell Aerospace commence qualification efforts for the additive manufacture of parts at layer thicknesses of 60 and 90 micron. Honeywell will deploy the quad-laser SLM 500 platform and use SLM Solutions’ standard aluminium parameter sets to complete material qualification. It is believed enabling the additive manufacturing of parts with thicker layers will enable mass manufacturing companies like Honeywell, to reduce printing times and costs and turnaround parts more quickly.
