3D Printing Technology
Selective Laser Melting (SLM)

Building Functional Metal Parts

The printer excels in directly producing functional complex geometric parts such as snap-fit or loose joint hinges, offering versatility and precision in its output. It accommodates a wide range of materials, including metal powders that can be single metals or alloys, providing flexibility to meet various application requirements.

Particularly suitable for manufacturing single parts or small batches of functional components, it caters to diverse industries including industrial production, prototyping, research, dental, and medical fields. With its ability to deliver intricate and high-quality prints efficiently, the printer serves as an indispensable tool for producing critical parts and prototypes with exceptional accuracy and reliability.

Printing in SLM

SLM is a 3D printing technology that uses metallic powder to print metal objects instantly.

During printing, a coating mechanism (the recoater) spreads a layer of metallic powder on the printing plate and a powerful laser beam selectively melts the powder of the current layer. After the fusion is complete, the printing platform is moved down one layer, and the process is repeated until the entire object is fused. The whole process is carried out in a chamber, with a shielding gas, to prevent the metal from reacting with other gases at high temperatures.

The main advantage of SLM technology is that it offers many new options in manufacturing metal parts, such as geometric freedom in design, weight reduction, flexibility in prototyping, and speed in producing metal objects in small quantities.
