Metal 3D Printing




Metal 3D printing is a revolutionary technology that produces impossible-to-make parts directly from your CAD data. Advantages to this process include the ability to produce strong, complex geometries, internal lattice structures, conformal cooling channels and other features that cannot be made with traditional machining. Parts can be made quickly with a minimum of material waste making them ideal for next-generation engineering in aerospace, medical, automotive and other industries. With all subtractive manufacturing services available in-house, you can produce great results for the most demanding projects. 


What Is Metal 3D Printing?

At Ego, we use a 3D printing process called Direct Metal Laser Melting (DMLM). This additive manufacturing process uses a high-powered laser to melt and fuse successive layers of powdered metal into three-dimensional solid parts. The advantage is that the more complex or feature rich the component, the more economical the process becomes.


Advantages Of 3D Printing

There are many benefits for 3D printing, especially if you know how to optimize your product design to take advantage of them. Benefits include:

  1. Metal 3D printed parts are fully dense, incorporating complex geometries and precise internal features that cannot be made with traditional machining alone.
  2. Designs can be made quickly with a minimum of material waste while maximizing strength.
  3. Conformal cooling channels greatly improve performance and resistance to thermal stress, ideal for aerospace and automotive applications.
  4. Multiple, identical parts can be built on a single platform at one time, greatly increasing production efficiency.
