Laser powder bed fusion (LPBF) enables manufacturing of highly optimized metal parts, and has been embraced by demanding industries like healthcare and aerospace for this ability. These industries require stable and capable manufacturing processes to allow the adoption and industrialization of any given manufacturing technology. To bring LPBF beyond introduction to fully qualified serial manufacturing, equipment and process architecture and proofing capability are vital.

This white paper documents a thorough process capability study performed using 3D Systems’ LPBF technology, known as direct metal printing (DMP).
