Atlantic XL provides EPC and EPCM services to the energy industry supporting offshore and onshore systems, including digitisation, telecommunications, navigation, environmental monitoring and additive manufacturing of metal parts. Now the company is commissioning its first commercial 3D printer in Newfoundland and Labrador. The Canadian-based company chose SLM Solutions as its supplier and selected an SLM®280 machine.

With more than 20 years of experience in engineering, procurement and construction management of integrated solutions, the company recognised that the industry has never faced a more challenging environment when sourcing materials. Today, the industry faces significant challenges in the supply chain of high-value metal parts. Atlantic XL therefore decided to purchase an SLM®280 from SLM Solutions, its partner in metal-based additive manufacturing. The machine will help reduce the carbon footprint. It also ensures a more efficient supply chain by reducing long lead times and preventing component obsolescence. A digital storage concept instead of physical storage of components also reduces costs.
"We chose the SLM®280 because the system has an open architecture. It gives us the freedom to customise everything we need. The excellent collaboration with our team and the technically acceptable equipment supported our decision," explains Marty Gaulin, Director Additive Manufacturing at Atlantic XL.
The SLM®280 is a robust additive manufacturing machine with multi-laser technology and a closed powder cycle. It is ideal for medium to high volume additive manufacturing of metal parts and prototypes. The machine's open architecture allows for free choice of metal powder, open process parameters with print-ready parameters on demand and variable control.
"Our machines are a great asset for the energy industry. SLM Solutions has proven its ability to innovate with products such as Freefloat and is helping to make the world a better place with innovative components and technological advancements. We are excited about this exciting new collaboration that will allow us to expand our manufacturing capabilities to the Canadian coast," says Fabrizio Ragusa, energy expert at SLM Solutions.
