Flying Ray

3D multi-head printing - from prototype to series production.

Kurtz Ersa Flying Ray inspires! The demand for metallic 3D printing is continuously increasing. Especially in terms of geometry freedom, customizability and use for small series. But Kurtz Ersa now also has the solution for you for the production of large parts and series components!


Highly functional due to vertically impinging laser beams

The Flying Ray presents itself with a multi-axis system for lasers. It is highly innovative due to its vertically impinging laser beams. In the basic version, eight lasers are used simultaneously on eight swivel arms. The highlight: They work in parallel in overlapping work areas. The laser power is adaptive and ranges from 50 to 400 W. Axes and lasers are modularly expandable.

Optimal results with build processor and slicer

Metallic 3D printing is not a trivial matter. It requires knowledge of machine parameters, processes and materials. To connect software and hardware, you need a user interface that reliably handles communication. The uncomplicated integration of your 3D models is important to us. By means of the slicer specially developed by Kurtz Ersa, data preparation becomes child´s play. Likewise, we ensure easy operation through an intuitive human-machine interface.

Print your Production – Series production with 3D multihead printers

Kurtz Ersa has been a general contractor of turnkey projects for decades. We can boast over 50 successfully completed and globally placed turnkey solutions for Kurtz Automotive and Kurtz Protective Solutions. We also offer to create a complete factory concept for the field of Additive Manufacturing. If needed, different areas are planned to work with different materials.

Flexibility for your production

Possible production flow: The components are printed, automatically removed and transported to neighboring halls for post-processing by an automated guided vehicle (AGV) - completely independently of the printing process. The AGV then places the components in the cooling area. The components are then transported to the actual post-processing cell.
Stations in the cell: de-powdering, stress relieving, mechanical post-processing, sawing - separation from the build platform and blasting of the component.

Next, onward transport by AGV to the next processing step, e.g. assembly or shipping. Please contact us. We would be happy to plan your production in metallic 3D printing with you!
