Digital Light Processing (DLP) is a 3D printing process in which a DLP projector light source cures photosensitive material/resin. DLP printing is enabled using a DLP chip, a precision device made up of millions of microscopic mirrors that can be individually controlled to produce clear and crisp images. An oxygen layer enables continuous motion of the build platform allowing for exceptional speed.

  • High-throughput productivity, therefore, means that per-part costs can compete with traditional processes like casting and forging.
  • Manufacturing complex shapes & geometries with internal features & channels.
  • Binder jet parts emerge from the furnace fully dense, meaning they’re equally strong in all directions.
  • Reduced warehousing & inventory needs


Bound Metal Deposition™ (BMD) is an extrusion-based metal additive manufacturing (AM) process where metal components are constructed by extrusion of a powder-filled thermoplastic media. Bound metal rods—metal powder held together by wax and polymer binder—are heated and extruded onto the build plate, shaping a part layer-by-layer. Once printed, the binder is removed via the debind process, and then sintered—causing the metal particles to densify.
