The M LINE Factory is the foundation of our vision for the “AM Factory of Tomorrow” and is anchored on the principles of automation, interoperability, and digitization.
This new architecture consists of 2 independent machine units: The M LINE Factory PRD and M LINE Factory PCG:
M LINE Factory PRD
This is the production unit and consists of 3 modules: dose module, build module, and overflow module. All of these can be individually activated and do not form one continuous unit. These modules are transported via a tunnel system inside the machine. For example, when new powder is supplied, the empty powder storage module can be automatically replaced by a new module without interrupting the build process. Finished jobs can be moved outside of the machine and automatically replaced to resume operations immediately.
M LINE Factory PCG
This is an independent processing unit which has an integrated sieving station and powder management. Unpacking, preparations for the next build job and sieving take place in a self-contained system without the operator being in contact with the powder.
The M LINE Factory truly presents an unprecedented level of automation and flexibility.
