Direct Metal Printing (DMP) technology is developed in such a way, it gives you complete freedom to design, test and manufacture stronger 3D printed metal parts that are light, durable which cannot simply be possible with standard manufacturing.
Benefits of Metal Printing:
ADAM is an end-to-end process that starts with metal powder, captures it in a plastic binder making it safe to handle and then forms it into the part shape one layer at a time. After printing you sinter the part in a furnace, burning off the binder and solidifying the powder into the final fully-dense metal part.
WAAM – Wire Arc Additive Manufacturing is a wire-based generative manufacturing processes where a laser, electron beam, or arc is used to melt a wire-shaped filler metal, which is then used to build the component. This type of process is generally much quicker than powder-based processes. The deposition rate of the WAAM method for steel materials can be up to four kilograms per hour, with multi-wire solutions potentially leading to even higher deposition rates in the future.
Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) is the rapid prototyping technology that uses a laser to harden and bond small grains of plastic, ceramic, glass, metal or other materials into layers in a 3 dimensional structure.
Considering its robustness and capability to produce complex whole parts, SLS can bring major time and cost benefits for small-run parts that would usually require some assembly with traditional manufacturing.
Stereolithography (SLA) uses an ultraviolet laser to precisely cure photopolymer cross-sections, transforming them from liquid to solid. Parts are built directly from CAD data, layer-by-layer into prototypes, investment casting patterns, tools, and end-use parts.
Continuous fiber 3D printing is a process where a spool of fiber is used to embed very long strands of fiber into parts as they are printed. Continuous fiber 3D printing provides substantially more strength and stiffness because it better mimics the manufacturing process of traditional carbon fiber parts where long strands of fiber are layered on top of another in a resin.
MultiJet Printing is a material jetting printing process that uses piezo printhead technology to deposit materials layer-by-layer. These high-resolution 3D printers use a separate, meltable or dissolvable support material that can be completely removed in a virtually hands-free process, allowing even the most delicate and complex features to be thoroughly cleaned without damage.
DLP (Digital Light Processing) is a 3D printing process that works with photopolymers and uses a more conventional light source, such as an arc lamp with a liquid crystal display panel, which is applied to the entire surface of the vat of photopolymer resin in a single pass.
DLP produces highly accurate parts with excellent resolution and only a shallow vat of resin is required to facilitate the process, which generally results in less waste and lower running costs.
Ceramic stereolithography (CSL) is a precise and high-resolution additive manufacturing (AM) technique to fabricate complex ceramic parts. In CSL, conventional raw resins are loaded with ceramic powders acting as fillers, and the ceramic-loaded resins are typically called ceramic resins. CSL process consists of these main steps: preparing a suitable photocurable ceramic suspension, the building of the ceramic part, de-binding, and sintering.
Titomic Kinetic Fusion (TKF) utilizes the supersonic particle deposition of metal powders to create industrial-scale parts and complex surface coatings with high-performance materials, including titanium, drastically increasing productivity by reducing costs and lead times from months to days. It also reduces waste by 80% compared to traditional machining through near-net-shape manufacturing. As the parts are manufactured, they are built to near their final shape, then precision machined to final tolerance, removing up to 5-10% of material.
