5 axis Laser Metal Deposition System (LMD) Non-atmosphere controlled Chamber
L221 Laser Metal Deposition System (LMD) with Atmosphere Controlled Chamber
Formalloy's additive manufacturing technology utilizes Laser Metal Deposition (LMD) to create metallic parts to near-net shape, increasing the design envelope while providing a more economical solution than producing the same part with conventional methods. Formalloy's additive manufacturing systems enable reduced machining time and nearly eliminate material waste, particularly with high-value materials such as titanium and Inconel. 3D printing parts with Formalloy's process can provide design features that can’t be achieved with conventional manufacturing methods, such as internal cooling channels and gradient material or multi-metal parts.
Unlike powder-bed technologies such as direct metal laser sintering (DMLS), Formalloy's LMD process deposits metal with a coaxially aligned laser/powder nozzle. Our process typically achieves much faster build times, superior material properties and a much larger build envelope compared with powder-bed technologies.
Formalloy’s LMD process can produce parts with dimensions from less than 1 mm to greater than 1 meter with bead widths from 250 micron and up.
