Hofmann Innovation AG (Lichtenfels, Germany) has introduced the Hofmann Medea 1500, what the company describes as the world’s largest selective laser sintering (SLS) system, for rapid prototyping and rapid manufacturing. With a serviceable build volume of up to 1,500 mm by 500 mm by 500 mm (59 by 19.7 by 19.7 inches), the system enables the sintering of large components in a single-step process, fabricating parts such as instrument panels and interior/exterior automotive parts, or it can produce several smaller components simultaneously. Reportedly, the system architecture permits a greater variation in layer thickness compared to conventional SLS systems, enabling part builds with greater precision or, alternatively, faster build speeds.
