3-D Metal Printed Components
Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) has many benefits over traditional manufacturing techniques. The ability to quickly produce a unique part is the most obvious because no special tooling is required and parts can be built in a matter of hours. Additionally, DMLS allows for more rigorous testing of prototypes. Since DMLS can use most alloys, prototypes can now be functional hardware made out of the same material as production components.
DMLS is also one of the few additive manufacturing technologies being used in production. Since the components are built layer by layer, it is possible to design internal features and passages that could not be cast or otherwise machined. Complex geometries and assemblies with multiple components can be simplified to fewer parts with a more cost-effective assembly. DMLS does not require special tooling like castings, so it is convenient for short production runs.
Other Services We Offer
FUSED DEPOSITION MODELING
Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) is a 3D Printing technology requiring a fairly simple setup, using only a heated nozzle, a build platform, and coiled thermoplastic filaments to build an object. A great solution for low-volume Production Parts, Jigs & Fixtures, and Functional Prototypes.
DIGITAL LIGHT PRINTING
Digital Light Printing (DLP) refers to a method of printing that makes use of light and photosensitive polymers. In most forms of DLP, each layer of the desired structure is projected onto a vat of liquid resin that is then solidified layer by layer as the buildplate moves up or down. As the process creates each layer successively, it is quicker than most forms of 3D printing.
