PRECIOUS M 080.

Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) system.

A system for the additive manufacturing of precious metal products for the production of prototype parts and end products, DMLS for precious metals is a groundbreaking technology from Cooksongold and EOS that’s designed for the jewellery and watchmaking industries, providing the quickest-ever route from product concept to market launch.

About the PRECIOUS M 080.

The PRECIOUS M 080 produces top-quality, ready to finish metal parts direct from three-dimensional CAD data. Designs can be realised in only a few hours without the investment of tooling. The DMLS process builds the parts layer by layer, melting fine metal powder with a laser to create extremely complex geometries such as freeform surfaces, hollow sections and articulating parts.

It is equipped with a 100-watt fibre laser, which provides exceptional beam quality and power stability. This guarantees optimum and consistent processing conditions in order to produce the highest quality parts.

The PRECIOUS M 080 system is designed to facilitate powder handling and the removal of manufactured components.

It is designed with a powder management process developed for the jewellery and watchmaking industries, ensuring full accountability of the valuable powders and providing quick metal changeover through its cartridge-based system.

The system possesses a small laser spot size with excellent detail resolution, allowing the creation of even the finest structures.

It facilitates the processing of an increasing range of precious metals in addition to the standard non-precious metal alloys such as titanium.

The process software contains many intelligent exposure strategies and features to enable the optimisation and adaptation of the build process for various material types and applications.

The PRECIOUS M 080 has a range of precious metal powder alloys with optimised parameter sets.

The system can be adapted to different requirements with a variety of options and additional equipment available. Achieving maximum productivity automatically.

Cooksongold and EOS offer a number of intuitive and user-friendly software packages for processing CAD data and for ensuring the production of parts.
