1. Bavarian based Toolcraft, a family owned company in Germany, uses the Concept Laser M1 3D Printing machine to manufacture precision parts for the automotive and aerospace industries. In this video you can see parts being modelled in 3D CAD, built by LaserCUSING, finished by Wire EDM and precision machining on a CNC lathe. The finished part is shown in cross section and contains internal cooling paths - this method allows the maximum performance with the minimum manufacturing cost, as a result of the small number of process steps from concept to finished component.

  2. In this video, the M2 can be seen building parts by laser melting of reactive powder (aluminium or titanium alloys) as well as the other materials more generally used in 3D printing (stainless steel, Inconel or Cobalt Chrome). The inert atmosphere keeps the material away from Oxygen preventing combustion or explosion as the fine powder is handled, and keeping the unused powder in perfect condition for re-use at the end of the build cycle.

    The Concept Laser M2 has a build envelope of 250 x 250 mm (X,Y) x 280 mm (Z)

  3. In this video you can see how the team from NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center are using Additive Manufacturing to produce the next generation of rocket components in the shortest time possible - from drawing to component. The M2 machine from Concept Laser is capable of building in reactive materials (titanium or aluminium alloys) which are particularly relevant to the space program.

  4. With the support of the Jewellery Industry Innovation Centre (JIIC), students from Birmingham City University (BCU) had the opportunity to design items of jewellery in 3D CAD software and have them built by ES Technology on the Concept Laser Mlab machine. Samples are shown in the raw (as built) state and after polishing. The Mlab can build parts in bronze (which visually looks similar to gold) or silver.

  5. An overview of Concept Laser GmbH and a look at their factory in Lichtenfels, Germany. Concept Laser is part of the Hofmann Innovation Group and manufactures 3D printing machines using fiber lasers to create solid metal parts from powder in steel, aluminium, titanium and cobalt chrome alloys as well as silver and bronze.

Concept Laser 3D printing systems are distributed in the UK and Ireland by ES Technology with offices in Daventry and Oxford. This channel shows videos of the machines in action performing additive layer manufacturing (ALM) of 3D components by fusing the metal powder one layer at a time using a powerful fiber laser. You will also see some examples of components which have been built in stainless steel, Inconel, silver, Cobalt Chrome, aluminium and titanium alloys.
