Find the Right 3D Printing Process

3D Materials

Applications for DMLS 3D Printing

Concept Models

The speed and versatility of DMLS 3D Printing lets product developers create physical snapshots of their designs through the iterative process.

Tooling Parts

DMLS 3D Printing can be used to create fully-functional prototypes, complete with moving parts, as well as all-in-one assemblies.

Production Parts

The high accuracy and consistency of DMLS 3D Printing makes it an ideal way to build large quantities of discrete or customized parts.

DMLS 3D Printing for Industrial Applications

DMLS 3D printing is very versatile and can be set up for relatively hands-free production, which makes them ideal for many industries including automotive, electronics, aerospace & defense, robotics, and medical.

How Direct Metal Laser Sintering Works

Direct metal laser sintering (DMLS) is an additive metal printing technology that builds metal parts from a CAD file by selectively fusing stainless steel or aluminum powder into thin layers. Direct metal laser sintering’s layer-by-layer printing allows multiple parts to be combined during the printing process. With traditional manufacturing processes, metal parts are machined or metal casted into several parts and assembled. Printing an all-in-one assembly strengthens the finished part while reducing the weight and cost of production significantly. DMLS techniques can also create parts at a high density. This is ideal for parts under high pressure such as in oil and gas industries.

Available Finishes

Standard: In addition to the removal of support structures, the part surface is media blasted to provide a uniform finish.

Custom: Additional DMLS post-processing, such as CNC Machining of features and polishing, are evaluated on a case-by-case basis and can be requested in the quoting tool.

DMLS Produces High-Quality Metal Parts Without Tooling

Our Manufacturing Supplier Network gives you massive on-demand production capacity with a wide range of DMLS machines and high-performance materials.

Designers often chose DMLS for its ability to produce all-in-one metal assemblies and highly precise metal parts with complex features like internal supports and lattices. DMLS does not have upfront setup or tooling costs, making it an affordable option for fully dense metal parts. With DMLS’s affordability, speed, and superior design freedoms, companies and creators can build metal designs they never thought possible.
