This is a Sinterstation SLS 2500 system that requires a complete upgrade of the galvo system in order to be functional. Please read this advertisement in its entirety prior to making further inquiries.
This machine is complete with chiller and breakout station but requires a new galvo system. We had the system fully operational and was running production right before we encountered problems with a galvo control board replacement fitting. This SLS also had the Hi-Q upgrade done to it before we acquired the system. We also installed a new black body heater on the machine just before the machine stopped working. There is less than 20 hours on run time on the black body heater.
Circumstances for the damaged galvo are not the galvo itself but the RJ45 fitting on the galvo control board replacement. The exact problem is believed to be the motion control boards that control one or more of the galvos. It is believed that the board was damaged during an attempted repair of a loose RJ 45 connector that attaches the galvos to the control board. It is possible (but unknown) that the damaged control board could have impacted other components of the galvo system, thereby spreading damage to other components in the system beyond the control board. The galvos themselves are (believed to be) good, but they are out of date technology and as such finding replacement control boards will be hard, if not impossible. For this reason the best hope for getting the machine running would be to replace the whole galvo system. The current galvo system was made by either a subsidiary of Cambridge Technology or a company that was later acquired by Cambridge Technology. The system was being serviced by Integra, a 3rd party SLS service provider, during its time with us. We were informed by Integra, that the galvo upgrade that they sell that would overhaul our galvo system is backordered to the tune of over a year. It’s possible that a person skilled in electronic diagnostics and repair could fix the damaged board, but as far as we know there is no documentation for the galvo system and as such any repair would have to be done unaided.
