Metal 3D Printing

Metal Additive Manufacturing

Direct Metal Printing (DMP), is an additive manufacturing technology that creates high quality intricate metal parts from 3D CAD data. In the machine, a high precision laser is focused towards metal powder particles to precisely build up thin horizontal metal layers one by one. This revolutionary technology allows for the production of metal parts with challenging geometries, not possible using traditional subtractive or casting technologies.

 

Metal 3D printers allow for the design, testing, and production of metal parts that are simply not possible with traditional manufacturing. Use these printers to boost your capabilities and create lightweight, high-strength structures.

Our 3D Systems Metal 3D Printers

DMP is a powerful 3D Printing technology that shapes any desired metal part geometry by melting metal powder layer by layer. This technology is applied to build up material in layers instead of removing it in different steps. The metal powder particles pinpointed by the laser quickly and fully melt so that the new material properly attaches to the previous layer, without glue or binder liquid. A powerful fibre laser with high energy intensity operates in the inert area inside the machine. This guarantees that the metal parts being built exhibit a dense and homogeneous material structure. The CAD design of the parts directly drives the DMP production machines without the need for programming, clamping or tooling.
