Hands-On Workshop with the Alpha 140

Seminar content

Together with LMI GmbH & Co. KG, we have set ourselves the goal of giving companies of all sizes and from all industries access to innovations, especially new technologies.

LMI GmbH stands for Laser Melting Innovations and has positioned itself in the equipment manufacturer market with the Alpha 140. Due to the low purchase costs of the system, it has a unique selling point.

The Alpha 140 combines innovative additive manufacturing technology with user-friendly handling and low system costs. So that the Alpha 140 offers an optimal solution for the tool-free production of metal components, especially for small and medium-sized companies.

A specially designed hands-on workshop will inform potential customers about the additive production and the special features of the Alpha 140. A practical part of the workshop gives participants the opportunity to familiarize themselves directly with the operation of the exclusive system.
