With the MRS unit in place, the printer can run for a week without any human intervention, the company says, consuming as little as 30 kg of metal powder. The machine and the MRS unit enable manufacturers to 3D print metal parts nearly 14" in the X, Y and Z axes and machine these surfaces to below 9 RMS in one setup. With an in-process correction system, the printer can recover from would-be build failures without operator intervention. | Sodick Inc. East, Level 3, Booth 134802
