Cooksongold will showcase its direct metal laser 3D printing technology at this year’s Baselworld, giving attendees the chance to see a live demonstration of its M 080 device as well as finding out more about the process.
The M 080 device, which featured in this month’s BenchPro magazine, will be showcased during a live 3D printing demonstration using gold at the Heimerle + Meule Group booth 4.U/E26 from March 19 to 26.
Utilising the power of 3D CAD design, the M 080 enables complex designs that have previously been constrained by manufacturing processes. The M 080 utilises a direct metal laser sintering (DMLS) process – whereby it builds precious metal designs layer by layer, melting fine metal powder with a laser. With this technology, intricate one-off 3D designs can be manufactured within a few hours.
As well as seeing the direct metal laser 3D printing technology in action, show attendees will be able to learn more about the M 080 and its technological capabilities. As well as see examples of jewellery produced on the Precious M 080.
David Fletcher, European Product Manager, said: “We are really excited to be demonstrating our Direct Precious Metal 3D printing technology live at Baselworld. The M 080 machine is ground breaking in the jewellery and watch industry. We will be printing jewellery live at the world’s largest jewellery show each day, which will give visitors to the stand a first-hand view of how this technology is going to change the industry.”
Developed by industry leader EOS, in collaboration with Cooksongold at its factory in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter, the M 080 machine is now commercially available to buy, along with the Advanced Metal Powder developed specifically for the system. A bureau service, plus machine sales, powder production, maintenance, repairs and training are also available.
