DMLS/SLM Printing

Direct metal laser sintering (DMLS) is a common 3D printing or additive manufacturing technique that is also referred to as selective laser melting (SLM). In this process, each layer of a part is created by aiming a laser at the powder bed in specific points in space, guided by a digitally produced CAD file. Once a layer is printed, the machine spreads more powder over the part and repeats the process. The process is ideal for printing Cr-Co metal alloy prothesis, with precise and Thinner margins and adaptations, uniform thickness, Accuracy and good internal fitting and Porosity free components.
