Aconity3D GmbH is a German manufacturer of 3D printing machines for metals based in Aachen, Germany, the birthplace of Laser Powder Bed Fusion (LPBF). The company focuses strongly on modular machines suitable for a variety of new industrial applications for 3D printing of metals from medicine, tools, automotive and energy to aerospace.
AconityMIDI, A Flexible Production System
The AconityMIDI is the approach for a flexible production system of Aconity3D. Equipped with an optional second process chamber, this system enables the parallelisation of set-up times while the main system is still producing. It has a round construction platform with a diameter of Ø 170 mm. The optional DUAL laser configuration with up to 1 kW output further increases productivity.
Since high flexibility is essential for exploring countless different additive manufacturing applications, the AconityMIDI
can also be equipped with the following options:
High temperature preheating of up to 1200°C for a dramatically expanded range of materials such as titanium aluminides and certain nickel-base superalloys.
Vacuum option for an absolute total chamber pressure of < 1 mbar and drastically reduced flushing cycles of less than 10 minutes.
Micro option for miniature applications with a focus size of < 50 µm and resulting structure sizes of < 100 µm
Fully interchangeable additional process chamber with set-up station, enabling complete parallelisation of set-up times and thus cost-efficient production
Process monitoring capabilities through high-speed imaging and pyrometry with the goal of enabling improved quality components for critical applications according to certified process flows.
software suite offers full freedom and autonomy in applied process parameters and materials for a rapidly growing field of new applications.
