Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS)

Transformative solutions live here. Find the latest company information, news and industry-leading insights.

Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) is an additive manufacturing (or 3D Printing) technology that produces metal prototype and production parts in a matter of hours. DMLS service utilizes a variety of metal and alloy materials to create strong durable parts from 3D CAD data without the need of tooling. 3D printed metal parts built with this technology have the design versatility of layer additive manufacturing while possessing the mechanical properties and appearance of metal materials.

DMLS is an accurate technology that is excellent at reproducing fine feature detail. This metal 3D printing technology is ideal for smaller prototypes, high-temperature applications, custom medical and dental parts, aerospace components and tough functional prototypes.

DMLS Advantages:

  • Creation speed and accuracy
  • Strong and durable
  • Fine feature detail

DMLS Applications:

  • Functional Prototypes — Tough prototypes that can be used for functional tests
  • High-Temperature Applications — Quickly manufacture parts that can withstand high heat
  • End-Use Parts — Low-volume production without tooling expense and lead times
