Equipment:

 

RENISHAW AM 250

The technology:

 
 

The technology fuses metal powder into a solid part by melting it locally using the focused laser beam. Parts are built up additively layer by layer, typically using layers 25 micrometers thick.

Applications:

  • Manufacturing of organic or highly complex geometries
  • Tooling inserts featuring cooling channels
  • Lightweight structures for aerospace and high technology applications

Some good reasons to choose DMLS:

  • DMLS allows for more rigorous testing of prototypes
  • Direct production of low volume projects
  • Design freedom (no support structure necessary)
  • Parts can be design with internal features and passages that could not be cast or otherwise machined.
