LAR100: A Metal 3D Printer Starting at €69,900

The LAR100 is a new laser metal 3D printer designed for fast production of numerous parts for a competitive price. Check its specs and features in this article.

From Saint-Petersburg, Russia, the 3D printer manufacturer LAR Technologies has launched what it’s calling the “first truly affordable machine for 3D printing metal”.

This “unique engineering company” designs and manufactures equipment for small to medium-sized businesses. It claims it will develop equipment of any complexity and specificity and its latest machine is no different.

The LAR100 3D printer is starting from €69,900 (~$80,700). Although this is only a limited time offer, this price tag is certainly a lot lower than many similar metal 3D printers on the market.

Here’s a brief rundown of the LAR100’s most noteworthy features and technical specs.

The LAR100 3D printer has been designed for fast production of numerous metal parts.

The “heart of the system” is a 200-watt IPG Photonics laser. The company explains that IPG Photonics‘ laser was chosen as this company is the world’s best-known laser manufacturer for such high-end products. IPG is an American company with locations in Moscow. You’ll find the IPG Photonics laser supplied within the base version of the printer.

Depending on which configuration you choose, the price of the printer will change. The base model costs €69,900.

  • If you choose a different laser source, you can spend upwards of €15,000 extra. But, with a laser of up to 1kW, this could increase the scanning rate of the printer.
  • LAR Technologies adds that this is important for printing bold models of titanium alloys. A higher laser power will also increase the printing speed by between 30% and 200%.
  • For another €4,900, you can invest in an automatic powder recycling system for the machine.  The powder which isn’t used is put back into the cartridge once more and automatically sifted, cleaned and preheated.
  • Spend another €4,900 on a two-way coating system which the company claims makes the printer much more productive and saves the user a lot of time.
  • An AI visual coating control can also be added for €2,500. This helps to prevent defects in printed parts using machine vision. If a problem is detected, the printer will either fix the issue or call an operator.
