Unveiling BLT’s New Product Line: Revolutionizing Metal 3D Printing with Unprecedented Efficiency and Cost-Effectiveness


Bright Laser Technologies (BLT) has announced an expansion of their metal 3D printing capabilities with the introduction of their latest BLT-S400 3D printer and the Powder Circulation System.

The newly launched systems are expected to advance metal 3D printing for industrial-scale production of large parts. The BLT-S400, designed for serial production, is particularly adapted for small to medium-sized parts with dimensions of 400mm x 300mm x 400mm (W x D x H). It carries three 500W lasers, thereby enhancing the efficiency of the production of smaller to medium-sized parts.

“The BLT-S400 is a significant addition to the world of metal 3D printing. Its contribution is further enhanced by the Powder Circulation System from BLT, which optimizes material usage and reduces the requirement for manual intervention. This printer is a fantastic option for businesses seeking speedy and efficient production of metal components,” stated BLT.

In a related development, BLT displayed its innovative technologies at the recent Formnext tradeshow.

Cost-effectiveness and efficient powder recycling

An essential aspect of the BLT-S400 is its extended lifespan filter, developed to reduce disruptions during printing and bolster overall safety. Setting itself apart, the 3D printer showcases cost-effectiveness with an operating air consumption ranging from 2-6 L/min, distinguishing it from comparable devices.

Addressing a critical facet of mass production, BLT’s Powder Circulation System focuses on efficient powder recycling in industrial processes. Ensuring the secure transfer, recovery, sieving, and reuse of metal powders within a closed loop, the system facilitates in-line recycling solutions for multiple machines. This integrated strategy enables the simultaneous printing of identical materials across diverse machine models. It ultimately reduces powder consumption, minimizes reliance on manual operations, and elevates both production efficiency and return on investment.

BLT-BP Software: simplifying calibration and optimizing part profiling

Contributing to process efficiency, the BLT Build Plan (BP) software incorporates the AutoSplice calibration module, a creation by BLT’s software engineers. This module significantly diminishes the necessity for manual intervention, streamlining the calibration process by an impressive 386%. 

Ensuring precise alignment through its multi-laser system, the AutoSplice calibration program guarantees a consistently controllable accuracy of 0.02mm. The BLT-BP software is dedicated to enhancing part profiling efficiency, boasting an average profiling time of only 9 minutes, and granting control over the profiling time for multiple parts in less than 30 minutes.
