Atlantic XL provides EPC and EPCM services to the energy industry, supporting offshore and onshore systems including digitalization, telecommunications, navigation, environmental monitoring and metal additive manufacturing. Atlantic XL are excited to share they will be operating the first commercially available metal 3D printer in Newfoundland and Labrador. The Canada-based company selected SLM Solutions as its vendor of choice and purchased an SLM 280 machine.

Drawing on over 20 years of experience in engineering, procurement, and construction management of integrated solutions the business has recognized that the industry has never faced a more challenging environment in procuring materials required to support its clients. Today the industry possesses significant supply chain challenges for high-quality metal parts. Atlantic XL, therefore, decided to acquire an SLM 280 system from additive manufacturing partner SLM Solutions. This capability will contribute to net zero by reducing the carbon footprint, as well as support the supply chain by reducing long lead times, solving part obsolescence, and reducing costs by offering a digital warehouse concept over physical parts storage.

“We decided on the SLM 280 because of the open architecture system. It gives us the freedom to adapt to everything we need. The excellent collaboration with our team and the technically proper equipment supported our decision,” explained Marty Gaulin, Director of Additive Manufacturing at Atlantic XL.

The SLM 280 is a robust additive manufacturing machine with multi-laser technology and closed-loop powder handling. It’s ideal for production and prototypes of medium to high-volume metal additive manufacturi. The open architecture strategy of the machine enables a free choice of powder, open process parameters with ready-to-print parameters if required 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 technical progress. We are pleased about this exciting new relationship bringing our manufacturing footprint to the East coast of Canada,” said Fabrizio Ragusa energy expert of SLM Solutions.
