ULT to introduce new LAS 200.1 system at Formnext

ULT will exhibit a range of existing and new solutions for air and gas purification in 3D printing processes at Formnext, the international exhibition on next generation manufacturing technologies to be held on 13-16 November in Frankfurt, Germany.

At hall 3, stand H49 the company will demonstrate how air-cleaning systems may support metal and plastics additive manufacturing processes, including solutions for inert gas purification during selective laser melting and the removal of dusts, vapors and particles in plastics melting.

Another highlight will be the introduction of the new device series LAS 200.1 for laser fume extraction. The system has a modular and rugged design, extremely low-noise operation, variable application opportunities for up to four workplaces and an extensive range of accessories. The specially developed automatic vacuum stabilisation and selectable pressure ranges enable automatic and flexible adaptations of the system to changing pollutant situations.

ULT will be supported by the Karlsruher Institut für Technologie (KIT), which will be exhibiting a current research system at the booth.
