3D Printing

3D Printers use high grade and high-performance thermoplastics, photopolymers, and metals that are historically used in engineering- and manufacturing processes.  With our printers we can produce complex high-requirement parts in a fast and efficient manner while providing flexibility, responsiveness, and control that cannot be obtained with historical manufacturing processes.  All produced parts have a smooth surface finish. ME 3D Offers a Variety of 3D Printing Technologies.

SLM Metal 3D Printing in Titanium Maraging Steel and other metals.

Selective Laser Melting of Metal Materials (SLM)

Is an additive manufacturing (AM) or 3D Printing (3DP) technology that utilises a laser beam in a controlled and doped environment to melt and fuse metallic powders together. SLM is a subcategory of the SLS process but differs by that fact that SLM fully melts and fuses the metal powder elements together into a functional solid 3D object where SLS does not.
