Direct Metal Printing (DMP) gives you complete design freedom to manufacture stronger parts that are light, durable and perform better than other means. Learn how you can save money, accelerate time-to-market and discover new levels of efficiency today.
A combination of high strength, low weight and excellent biocompatibility define Titanium alloys. When metal 3d printing it is critical for final part quality as well as for the total cost of operation (TCO) that the highly reactive titanium powder is not exposed to oxygen. You need vacuum chamber architecture to keep oxygen exposure under 25ppm during the entire print build. This ensures consistent part properties and nearly 100% powder usage.
Interbody Fusion Device for improved Osseo ingrowth manufactured in LaserForm Ti Gr5 (A) material.
Stainless Steel Alloys
Good for complex metal 3d printed parts with excellent strength, high ductility, wear and corrosion resistance. Stainless steel parts can be easily welded, CNC machined, spark eroded and polished - integrating conventional manufacturing processes with metal AM. Stainless steel parts produced with DMP/PBF/DMLS/SLM are typically used for machine components, food-safe applications, medical devices and surgical instruments. Steel alloys are often used for spare part production. Select alloys with thoroughly developed and tested print parameters.
Lamella heat exchanger with incapsulated internal conformal channels for improved heat transfer coefficient.
Maraging Steel Alloys
Use genuine tool steel (1.2709) for the direct production of tools, molds and high-performance parts that require high strength and hardness. Metal 3D printing enables direct inclusion of conformal cooling channels for improved head management in injection molding tools, enabling shorter cycle times and longer tool lifetime. Shows good weldability and machinability for post-processing and integration of additive with conventional technologies for a reduced total cost. Available with thoroughly developed and tested print parameters.
