Additive Manufacturing and Industrial 3D Printing

Additive Manufacturing (AM) produces components from metal, plastics and synthetic resins. This is done by laser-based methods such as:

  • Laser Powder Bed Fusion, LPBF
  • Stereolithography
  • Laser sintering

Typical applications are rapid prototyping and industrial series production of 3D printed parts.


Support Through Scan Systems

The following sections highlight typical goals of LPBF machine builders and help select the right SCANLAB solution for them.

Increase in productivity

Goal Possibilities SCANLAB solutions
Shorter production time

Increase throughput with multi-head laser machines through simultaneous processing and high overlap of the image fields.


Large construction fields Scan system configurations with flat field correction

varioSCAN II

Minimization of process non-productive time

Reduction of skywriting times und undesired laser-off times through control with SCANahead-technology



Production of filigree and complex structures

Goal Possibilities SCANLAB solutions
Highest accuracy and low drift

Galvanometer scanner with se encoder technology for system stability even with long production times

Systems with se encoder technology, for example:

Compensation of machine-specific tolerances Software solutions for the calibration of 2D or 3D scan systems



Reliable process results

Goal Possibilities SCANLAB solutions
Precise position monitoring

Enhanced process monitoring by assigning sensor signals to the location in the construction field where they were recorded

Open Interface Extention (OIE)

First Time Right

Monitor and control work results in real time with process control that interacts with process sensor technology (e.g. pyrometer)
