The NXG Xll 600 is a revolution in industrial manufacturing. The NXG XII 600 was designed for high-volume, serial productions. The arrival of this machine with 12 lasers with 1000 Watts will change supply chains and the common inventory models forever. The integration of this machine in traditional production lines is not just a breakthrough for additive manufacturing, but the start of a new era in manufacturing and metal additive printing. It is built on four core principles: Productivity, size, reliability and safety.
With 12 lasers 1000 watts each, we have raised the industry bar to new heights. Productivity and reduced cost per part are the key elements of this machine.
12 Lasers is not enough. The whole system was revolutionized to get the maximum out of this combined laser power.
The NXG XII 600 can print substantially larger parts at unmatched quality. It’s equally able to produce a higher yield of parts in a single build job. This enables true mass production at unbeatable production costs. The build envelope is optimized for large parts in the aerospace and automotive sectors, as well as high volume productions.
We have a tailored laser focus size – we call it Zoom function. This function enables spot size definition via a double lens system and is integrated into all 12 optics. It opens new possibilities in the parameter development.
Maintaining the exact positions of the key components is crucial for a high-quality build. The NXG XII 600 uses a combination of cutting edge technology to create high productivity with state-of-the-art thermal management.
The NXG XII 600’s gas flow system is the result of many years of intensive work. Here, the finest conceptual ideas were implemented and state-of-the-art engineering tools used to bring about a gas flow system unlike any other available on the market.
With the optimized gas flow set up the NXG XII 600 is able to achieve homogeneous part properties all over the building platform. The zoom functionality of the optical system opens new possibilities in the parameter development.
Up to now it was not possible to build parts out of nickel-based alloys or steels with laser power of more than 350 Watts. The zoom functionality enables you to use increased laser power of up to 800 Watts. In these material groups we expect significant jumps in build-up rates compared to aluminum, where we already achieved very high built up rates in the past. For aluminum alloys, we expect higher build up rates, nonetheless, not only because of the use of 12 lasers.
The closed powder system offers two options: a gravity-based tank solution and a closed loop powder conveying system. With both systems and the support of a 235l buffer tank, the NXG XII 600 provides a whole new level powder for supply.
The NXG XII 600 is able to produce right through from fine features and delicate patterns to large thicknesses, all while maintaining the highest productivity. Have the freedom to go as big or as small as you desire with the same cutting-edge machine.
The NXG XII 600 has been designed and manufactured from scratch to include only the finest systems, all trialled and tested to create a first-class quality machine. We have put an extensive amount of work into making sure you can create with confidence.
With the new Machine Control System, the core goals of the NXG XII 600 are to enhance productivity, reliability and usability. Now, users can accomplish more with a machine designed to work with them at all times.
Not only is the NXG XII 600 faster and more productive than any other machine of its kind, it is also one of the most robust. From its programming and hardware engineering, to the way it copes with any errors that may occur, it was built to handle even the most demanding jobs.
The NXG XII 600 is ready for commercial offering. Get ahead of the curve in the next phase of additive manufacturing.
