3D Metal Printing
3D Metal Printing (also known as Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) is a 3D printing/additive manufacturing ¬†technology that produces metal prototype and production parts.¬† DMLS prints metal parts by sintering various metal and alloy particles together.
Why Use 3D Metal Printing?
The¬†3D Metal Printing¬†process can create complex and intricate geometries in a short amount of time.¬† This 3D printing/additive manufacturing process produces parts with high accuracy and detail resolution, good surface quality, and excellent mechanical properties.
Because¬†metal printed parts can often be made of the same metals as production components, including steel, aluminum, and titanium, these prototypes can be tested rigorously.

Who Uses¬†3D Metal Printing
3D Metal Printing¬†parts are used in a variety of industries for both prototype and production needs.
