DMLS (Direct Metal Laser Sintering)
Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) – also known as DMP (Direct Metal Printing) – uses a precise, high-wattage laser to micro-weld powdered metals and alloys to form fully functional metal components direct from CAD data. In many cases, DMLS eliminates time-consuming tooling and can create complex geometries impossible with other metal manufacturing processes. While Stainless Steel is the most commonly utilized material, other options include Inconel, Aluminum, and Titanium. DMLS parts are strong, durable, and heat-resistant. DMLS parts are also denser than investment cast metal parts. This exact metal 3D printing process provides fine feature detail, making it ideal for complex oil and gas components, intricately detailed small components, custom medical guides, consolidated aerospace parts, and tough, functional prototypes.
Features of DMLS
Get your CAD model 3D printed with DMLS Technology
We provide designers and manufacturers with a variety of 3D printing services, to create custom high-performance prototypes, tooling, manufacturing aids, end-use parts, and low-volume production.
By applying DMLS Technology, our staff of highly-experienced specialists are capable of meeting the most stringent demands in terms of time, cost and precision in the creation of your part.
DMLS Technology Advantages
How does it work?
DMLS micro-welds powdered metals and alloys using a precise, high-power laser to form fully functional metal parts from your CAD models.
DMLS parts are made from powdered materials such as aluminum, stainless steel, and titanium, as well as other niche alloys.
Raw DMLS parts have a surface finish comparable to fine investment cast parts, sometimes requiring professional finishing services.
elimold offers a full range of specialist finishing operations, including precision machining, media blasting, surface grinding, and milling.
Create metal parts faster
Metal 3D printing is ideal for complex oil and gas components, custom medical guides, part-consolidated aerospace parts, and tough, functional prototypes.
Utilize the design freedom of DMLS and produce accurate metal components in less time than other manufacturing methods.
