Advantages of Metal 3D Printing

Rapid Turnaround

DMLS parts do not require tooling, reducing manufacturing lead time from months to days.

Stainless steel parts are built within 5 business days, and aluminum parts are built within 8 business days, allowing for faster innovation and speed to market.

Strength

Utilizes powdered metals with strong mechanical and dynamic properties, making it perfect for end-use parts.

Complex Geometry

Produces parts that cannot be made using traditional manufacturing techniques.

Efficiency

DMLS defies traditional Design-For-Manufacturing guidelines, so designs that would typically be made in assemblies can be made in a singular piece.

Metal 3D Printing Finishes

Standard

In addition to the removal of support structures, the part surface is media blasted to provide a uniform finish.

Additional Finishes

Additional post processing, such as CNC Machining of features and polishing, are evaluated on a case-by-case basis. For examples of our additional finishes, please refer to the DMLS section of our photo gallery.

Applications for Metal 3D Printing

Rapid Tooling

Because DMLS printers can print in metal, they are widely used for rapid tooling, i.e., creating fixtures and jigs.

Rapid Prototyping

DMLS printers are used to make proof of concept models and fully functional late-stage prototypes.

Direct Digital Manufacturing

Cast-quality finish and durable materials have made DMLS printing a favorite technology for end-use products.
