The Challenge of Printing Large Parts

by | March 10, 2021

There are few printers on the market that can successfully print large parts. It is not enough to design a larger build chamber and add more lasers. With larger parts, laser calibration and alignment are critical.

The new Sapphire® XC expands the build volume of Sapphire® to 600mm Ø by 550 mm z-height and increases throughput by a factor of five by offering 8x 1kW lasers. Furthermore, the Sapphire® XC builds on Sapphire’s legacy of in situ laser calibration and run time alignment routines.
