Additive Manufacturing of Micro Metal Parts

Laser Sintering is an additive manufacturing technology, also known as 3D Printing, Selective Laser Sintering, and Selective Laser Melting. With Micro Laser Sintering, we merge the advantages of additive manufacturing and micro machining for the first time to generate complex micro metal parts of incredible accuracy, detail resolution and surface quality. The technology offers highest flexibility in manufacturing process, low operating costs, and user-friendliness.

With Micro Laser Sintering it is possible to process nonreactive and reactive materials, e.g. stainless steel, molybdenum, tungsten, titanium, and gold. The combination of a very small laser beam spot size and a unique micro metal powder allows the generation of micro parts with super thin layers and a very high part density. These advantages result in the ability to manufacture moveable parts and assemblies in a single step.

Micro Laser Sintering is ideally suited to manufacture micro metal parts for medical device industry, semiconductor industry, aerospace, as well as jewelry and watchmaking.

The Micro Laser Sintering technology has been developed and is continuously improved by 3D MicroPrint GmbH.
