- Product description: Complex Crafts use the Direct metal laser sintering technology to form the metal parts.
Direct metal laser sintering (DMLS) is one of three additive processes available at Vikled Molding. DMLS uses a laser system that draws onto a surface of atomized metal powder. Where it draws, it welds the powder into a solid. After each layer, a blade adds a fresh layer of powder and repeats the process until a final metal part is formed.
DMLS can use a variety of alloys, allowing prototypes to be functional hardware made out of the same material as production components. Since the components are built layer by layer, it is possible to design internal features and passages that could not be cast or otherwise machined. DMLS produces full-strength, functional metal parts with the same ease and speed as plastic parts, with the potential to transition into metal injection molding when increased production is needed.
