Streamline your manufacturing with precision metal prototypes and low-volume metal production parts that would be impractical or cost prohibitive to machine. We create metal parts using a fiber laser fired onto a metal plate, repeatedly adding layers of powdered metal and fusing them to previous layers. Although the resulting part is accurate with excellent surface quality and mechanical properties, additional post-processing is also available.
General tolerances for DMLS parts are ±0.005 inch for the first inch and ±0.002 inch per inch thereafter (±0.2 percent), but +/-0.002 inch is achievable in some materials. If CNC tolerances are required, parts will require post-machining.
