Keselowski Advanced Manufacturing (KAM for short), the metal AM service founded by former Team Penske NASCAR race driver Brad Keselowski, is rapidly becoming one of the most productive AM factories in the world. After starting out just a few years ago with only two systems, the service provider has built up a fleet of 21 metal PBF systems, with the newest SLM 280 just introduced bringing the total to three.
The full line up also includes two EOS M 400-4 Quad Laser with 400W Lasers (Build Volume: 400mm X 400mm X 400mm), one EOS M 290 with 400W Laser (Build Volume: 250mm X 250mm X 325mm), thirteen (!) EOS M 280 with 400W Laser (Build Volume: 250mm X 250mm X 325mm), one SLM 800 Quad Laser with quad-700W Lasers (Build Volume: 496mm X 277mm X 800mm), three SLM 280 Dual Laser with dual-700W Lasers (Build Volume: 280mm X 280mm X 365mm) and one GE Concept Laser M2 Multi-laser machine (Build Volume: 250mm X 250mm X 350mm).
