VELO3D Sapphire™ is the next generation laser fusion metal additive manufacturing system designed for advanced 3D metal printing. While conventional 3D printing systems often require supports for any geometry below 45°, VELO3D Sapphire uniquely enables engineers to realize designs with overhangs lower than 10°, and large inner diameters without supports. The VELO3D Sapphire system is designed from the ground up with high volume manufacturing in mind. It comprises a 315 mm diameter by 400 mm height build envelope, with high throughput dual kW laser operation. To maximize productivity, Sapphire features an integrated in-situ process metrology that enables first-of-a-kind closed loop melt pool control.
