from the printer
Metal 3D printing means that we can manufacture extremely complex parts from almost any weldable metal alloy in record time and at optimum cost – using your product's 3D data.
The required parts are built up additively from metal powder with no need for forming or for tools. At our own production facilities we use a powder material, which is applied in a thin layer onto a base plate, where a laser beam fully melts it. Once the first layer of material has solidified, we repeat the process with a fresh layer of powder until the component is ready. The software takes the data it needs to guide the laser directly from the component's 3D data.
Metal 3D printing made by ARNOLD means that it is possible to make technical innovations, speed up project implementation, and reduce costs.
