Materials for Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS)


Direct Metal Laser Sintering, also known as Selective Laser Melting, is an additive metal fabrication process. DMLS machines use a high powered 200 watt Yb-fiber optic laser to fuse metal powder into a solid part. Aluminium, Maraging Steel and Stainless Steel are DMLS materials, which we offer for your rapid manufacturing projects.

Why use Direct Metal Laser Sintering?

Manufacture with metal materials to create strong and durable tools and parts. Utilizing the material mixture of alloys, the metal parts built with DMLS technology will not only provide you parts with great appearance, but will create versatile designs with powerful mechanical properties.



 

Aluminum AlSi10Mg for Direct Metal Laser Sintering 

The AlSi10Mg is an aluminum alloy in fine powder form that has been specially optimized for direct metal laser sintering. AlSi10Mg  is a typical casting alloy with great casting properties and used for parts with thin walls and complex geometry. The aluminum is combined with silicon and magnesium which results in a significant increase in strength and hardness. It features good dynamic properties and is used for parts required for high loads.
