British 3D Printer manufacturer Renishaw have released the AM 400, the latest development to their AM250 system. It includes new system updates such as a larger SafeChange™ filter, improved optical control software, revised gas flow and window protection system and a new 400 W optical system which gives a reduced beam diameter of 70 µm.

The system build volume is 250 mm × 250 mm × 300 mm. Existing 200 Watt material files for the AM250 system are directly transferable to the AM 400. The AM 400 is equipped with the features of the existing AM250, such as open materials parameters, small factory footprint, class leading inert atmosphere and low gas usage, with the added advantage of the PlusPac upgrade as standard.
