Mlab R

For manufacturing metal components with elaborate structures and parts made from reactive materials like titanium. The Mlab R is capable of building in both reactive and non-reactive materials and produces fully dense parts with a surface finish that is unmatched in laser systems. The physical separation of the process chamber and handling station offers the possibility of using the handling station for multiple machines. The Mlab R now expands the previous range of materials to include titanium and titanium alloys.
