Metal 3D Printing in South Florida
Today’s technology gives us capabilities of 3d metal printing all types of materials including, Tool steel, stainless steel, fiberglass and aluminium.
Is it possible to Print in 3D with metal?
Yes, we use advanced printing technology in Fort Lauderdale, South Florida to produce durable and cost-effective parts using 3D metal printing.
3D printing has evolved; initially it was regarded as a toy and then became an expensive but rapid method of producing prototype. It is now considered to be a major branch of additive manufacturing technology. 3D metal printing works in a similar manor as printing plastics which melt the material and then deposit it layer by layer. However, the challenge in metal 3D printing is that metal has a very high melting point and it is either melted by Selective Laser Melting or the part is produced using Binder-Jetting.
How does our Metal 3D printer work?
Similar to printing plastics, our metal 3D printing deposits metal powder bound in a binder one layer at time with one nozzle while a second nozzle deposits ceramic martial to provide a layer to separate the metal part from any support. This eliminates any post production cutting to separate the support elements from the main part. The parts at this stage are green, that means the metal particles are held together by the binder and are solid and stable to go through the next two stages of washing and sintering to remove the binding agent and melt the metal particles to fuse together, forming a solid durable finished product. You can see some examples of products produced by our 3D metal printing process in the gallery section of this page.
