Mithilfe spezieller Geräte, die oft als Drucker bezeichnet werden, und Computersoftware lassen sich komplexe Formen bilden. Der Werkstoff wird in einer Patrone mithilfe von Lasern erhitzt und dann in hochfeinen Querschnittschichten platziert. Diese Schichten werden nach und nach von unten nach oben aufgebaut. Dabei erhält der Drucker die Anweisungen zur Platzierung des Materials aus der Software.
Bei vielen Verfahren der schnellen Fertigung werden Industrielaser als Energiequelle eingesetzt. Unsere Faserlaser sind zentrale Bestandteile vieler Metallpulververfahren.

„Anwendungspostkarten“ sind kurze Einblicke zu bestimmten Anwendungen, die Sie in wenigen Minuten durchlesen können.
Laser metal deposition (LMD) is an additive production process that uses a laser beam to form a pool of melted metal (a melt pool) on the surface of a metallic substrate into which metal powder is injected using a gas stream. The absorbed metal... read more >
Laser metal fusion, also known as selective laser melting or powder bed fusion, is an additive manufacturing process. It is effectively a 3D printing technology that builds components from a powder bed by selectively melting the powder and fusing... read more >
Additive manufacturing, which is the process by which a material is added layer by layer to produce a 3D part or component, has been dubbed the next ‘industrial revolution’ in the manufacturing industry. Here we examine why there is the need for... read more >
The very latest technologies are bringing massive cost and lead time benefits to prototyping. In fact very few technologies have offered as much as rapid prototyping technology (RPT) has in the last 5... read more >
3D printing, Rapid Prototyping and Additive Manufacturing are all terms used to broadly describe the same processes, which involve the creation of complex structures and components by the layering of materials which are gradually built up.A... read more >
Additive manufacturing is one of the most exciting technologies to be unveiled in recent years, with the possibilities for both consumers and in industry almost limitless.At the very core of this is the 3D printing machines, with the... read more >
Additive manufacturing processes are gradually increasing in their practical application, and engineers are starting to figure out where, when and how they could be the most useful.Rather than looking to completely replace all conventional... read more >
Often referred to by its far more sensational-sounding description of 3D printing, additive manufacturing is in fact a technology which has been around for at least three... read more >
3D printing, or additive manufacturing to use an alternative term, is a type of technology which has been around for a surprising amount of time, but has only recently started to evolve and develop sufficiently to grab the imagination of the... read more >
Rapid Prototyping is one of the processes that are grouped under the general heading of Additive Manufacturing. Other processes available under this heading are ‘Layer manufacturing’ or ‘Solid freeform fabrication’ (SFF) processes. This... read more >
