On-Demand SLM and DMLS 3d Printing from Zeal 3D Printing

Zeal 3D Printing is an ISO 9001-2015 certified company offering DMLS and SLM solutions across multiple industries. As the trend of metal 3d printing is growing, Zeal leverages cutting-edge DMLS and SLM technology to cater to all complex manufacturing requirements.

With years of experience in additive manufacturing, we deliver high-quality industry-grade products in a shorter turnaround time. So if you plan to use selective laser or direct metal printing, we can help you get started.


What is selective laser melting (SLM)?

Selective laser melting, also known as SLM 3d printing, is an advanced metal printing technology. Selective laser melting process uses a high power laser that fully melts every layer of the metal powder rather than only sintering it. As a result, the SLM process creates robust and durable components.

An SLM 3d printer can work with a wide range of metals, including aluminium, cobalt chrome, titanium, stainless steel, and more. It is a very high-power process in which each layer of the metal powder must be heated at a temperature higher than the melting point.

How does SLM 3D printing technology work?

SLM 3D printing technology is an additive manufacturing method in which materials are printed one layer at a time under computer control.

The 3d printer uses tiny metallic powders to build parts by fully melting them using the heat from a high power laser beam. The melted metallic powder becomes solid after it cools down and bonds with previously built material to form the part.

Application of SLM process allows the production of metal parts with very complex geometries, including hollow, porous or bonded structures that any other techniques cannot manufacture.

SLM is ideal for producing parts with complex internal geometries. In addition, a SLM 3d printing service is broadly used for various applications, including aerospace & aviation, medical implants or dental & jewellery.

What is Direct Metal Laser Sintering?

Direct Metal Laser Sintering is an efficient metal 3d printing in which the machine does not melt the metal powder completely; thus, less energy is needed. It is slightly more efficient than the SLM process as the operational overhead is lower.

The size of each powder particle must be smaller than 10 microns but is generally around 100 nanometres. These powders are often made of elemental metals or alloys, so they may not require post-processing for completing the final part.

How does the Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) process work?

Primarily, a layer of metal powder is spread across the surface of a build platform. Then, a high-powered laser beam traces over the part geometry, fusing the powder to create a solid cross-section. Another layer of material can then be applied and fused on top of that cross-section until the part is finished.

DMLS 3d printing process works by sintering each layer at a time. First, the support structure is built over the base place. After this, a cross-section layer of powder is micro-welded. Next, the build platform shifts down, and the blade moves across the platform to deposit the next layer into the inert build chamber.

This complete DMLS process is repeated until the object is built. DMLS technology is widely used across multiple industries, including automotive, manufacturing, and construction.

Zeal 3D Printing offers cutting-edge DMLS 3d printing services to meet all your manufacturing requirements. We are equipped with modern DMLS machines to deliver your products with a shorter turnaround time.

Advantages SLM and DMLS

Advantages of SLM and DMLS

Below are the cutting-edge advantages of SLM and DMLS solutions that help manufacturers upgrade your manufacturing:

Mass Customisation:

Manufacturing companies can manufacture a variety of products to meet the demands of their customers. Manufacturers can design from scratch without being restricted by traditional manufacturing methods. In addition, there is no need for tooling and dies for bulk product manufacturing.

Monolithic Design:

Manufacturers can build complex geometries with the help of these technologies. Products such as parts and components are quick to build without any joint or connection to make them highly durable. DMLS 3D printing technology is ideal when manufacturers design complex parts in a single piece.

Improved Functional Performance:

Both are highly stable and robust technologies that produce highly functional parts. Manufacturers can quickly create complex parts with excellent mechanical properties. The mechanical strength of manufactured parts is much higher than other conventional manufacturing methods. It helps you enhance part performance.

Better Weight Optimisation:

When manufacturers need to produce parts with higher weight optimisation for specific operations, these methods deliver excellence. In addition, manufacturers can use powder bed fusion methods to create components with different geometric variations.
