Direct Metal Printing (DMP), also commonly known as Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS), is an additive manufacturing technology that builds high quality complex metal parts from 3D CAD data. In the machine, a high precision laser is directed to metal powder particles to selectively build up thin horizontal metal layers one after the other. This cutting edge technology allows for the production of metal parts with challenging geometries, not possible using traditional subtractive or casting technologies. A variety of functional metals are available to print designs, from prototypes to production series of up to 20,000 units.

Production of small and extremely complex shapes with no need for tooling

Accommodate innovative part design versus conventional processes

Topology optimized parts and mass customization

Industry’s best surface finished parts with exceptional accuracy

High quality parts ideal for R&D and serial part manufacturing at the tightest tolerances

Complex and thin-walled structures allow significant part weight reduction

Direct Metal Printing

Standard: Sand surfaces to remove build lines and bead blasted.

Anodized: Electrochemical process that converts the metal surface into a decorative, durable, corrosion-resistant, anodic oxide finish

Heat Treated:
Use of heating or chilling, normally to extreme temperatures, to achieve a desired result such as hardening or softening of a material

Polished: Sand surfaces to remove build lines and then apply polishing compound until desired surface finish is reached.

Additional post-processing: Includes CNC milling, lathing & EDM
