3D metal printing
EOS metal 3D printing technology guarantees you the quality and strength of the printed part. With EOS devices you get the desired details that would otherwise be impossible to achieve.
How does it work?
With DMLS it is possible to create 3D printed metal parts directly from a computer model. The main ingredient for creating such a part is metal alloy powder. This technology is used for industrial 3D printing.
In a metal 3D printer, an ultra-fine layer of metal powder is spread on a construction platform. A powerful laser in the 3D printer then melts the powder at the exact locations defined by the CAD model. In this way, one layer of the 3D printed part is completed. This process is repeated until the part is complete:
The 3D printer continues to spread the material layer by layer.
The laser precisely melts the desired shape in each layer.
The 3D printed part grows layer by layer.
Advantages of printing from metal
Strength and quality of the printed part
Possibility to repair
Prototyping without the need for special tooling
Reduce Cycle Times, Increase Cost-Efficiency
Why using additive manufacturing to produce 3D printed molds and tools? As an industrial production method, the 3D printing process of additive manufacturing offers enormous design and manufacturing freedom. The most complex of shapes can be designed and produced in the highest quality, quickly and cost-efficiently, even for small batch sizes. In this way, the process provides a solution to a tooling challenge faced by many tool and mold makers:
In many industries, producing specialized tools and parts is one of the most resource-intensive manufacturing processes. Conventional processes are typically expensive, time-consuming and technically very challenging. The 3D printing process with EOS metal materials is the answer.More information →
Additive Manufacturing for Handling Systems
