SLM technology

SLM, also known as Selective Laser Melting, is similar in principle to SLS in that a laser is used to melt and solidify metal powder in a specified area, which is then molded in a layer-by-layer stack.

SLM technology

SLM technology is currently mainly used in industry and has outstanding technical advantages in areas such as complex moulds, personalised medical parts and automobiles.

Process principle

SLM, also known as Selective Laser Melting, is similar in principle to SLS in that a laser is used to melt and solidify metal powder in a specified area, which is then moulded in a layer-by-layer stack.

The model is first support loaded in the software, and when the support loading is complete a slice export is performed to import the data into the printer.

SLM

Process of 3D Printing

The laser emits a beam of laser light which will be directed to a designated area under computer control. The metal powder in the irradiated area will melt and the molten metal will quickly cool and solidify.

After printing one layer, the forming substrate is lowered by one layer and the squeegee lays down a new layer of powder, and so on until the part is formed.

After printing the basal plate is raised, the excess powder is swept away from the basal plate and the basal plate is then removed from the studio.

After the workpiece has been printed and the support removed from the model, the workpiece is ground and polished with a grinder and the workpiece is completed.
