Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS)
Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) is an additive manufacturing process melting fine powders to directly build metal components.
Advantages of Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS):
- Powerful additive manufacturing process allowing design driven manufacturing
- Thin wall and hollowing of components
- Pressure tapped components & cooling channels
- Fully dense, high performance materials
- Substantial waste savings over machining
- DMLS offers flexible batch production
- Ideal for one-off prototypes and low volume production
Machine capabilities: The Renishaw AM250 & 3D Systems ProX200 are the two DMLS machines that we have in-house to build the metal sintered parts.
- Typical lead-times 3 – 5 days
- Typical tolerance ±0.04mm
- Typical repeatability 0.02mm
- Minimum wall thickness 0.2mm
- Maximum build size 250 x 250 x 300mm
- Typical surface finish 3-5 Ra before any machining or polishing
DMLS Maraging Steel (MS1) / M300 1.2709
Maraging steels form a class of iron alloys. This group of materials has a martensitic crystal structure and is strengthened via aging at approx 500°C, hence the name ‘maraging’. These ultra-low carbon alloys have a very high strength and hardness properties.
