Additive Metals: An un-Conventional Approach

On Demand Available until November 1, 2017

Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) technology increasingly garners the international attention of manufacturing, business, and scientific communities as a new industrial frontier for production manufacturing. A select group of early adopters, primarily aerospace OEM’s, have realized significant savings in design time, assembly labor, part count/inventory levels, product weight, and ultimately product performance.

Still, the use of DMLS for low volume manufacturing is dependent on the manufacturer’s ability to comply with form, fit, and function of factory-made hardware with exceptional dimensional accuracy and repeatability – a task that is no easy feat.

This Webinar will walk you through an examination of DMLS manufacturing technology and materials, grasping its capabilities and limitations, and understanding design principles that allow you to leverage the power of additive metals production.

Additionally, we will debunk the myth that additive metals processes are replacing conventional manufacturing processes like CNC machining, sheet metal forming, and casting, and we will illustrate how additive and conventional processes can complement your manufacturing portfolio.
