3D Printing with Powdered Metal? That’s DMLS Technology
- An ultra-thin layer of the metal powder is rolled out and spread using a built-in roller.
- The chamber of the 3D printer is then heated (but not high enough to melt the particles).
- A built-in laser then touches any spot where another layer is called for in the design. The laser melts or sinters the metal particles, which in turn causes the particles to melt together forming the shape of the parts being manufactured.
