Direct metal laser sintering (DMLS) is a metal 3D printing technology that builds prototype and production metal parts from a CAD file using a laser to selectively fuse a fine metal powder in either stainless steel or aluminum materials. A DMLS machine is capable of producing highly complex features and all-in-one assemblies using metal materials that would be difficult to achieve with subtractive manufacturing techniques. DMLS is often used as a substitution for aluminum or steel metal casting.
Direct metal laser sintering (DMLS) 3D printing is a revolutionary technology that is changing the way manufacturers create prototypes and end-use parts. Check out our free guide to learn how to make the most of this amazing additive manufacturing technology.
