Using micro meter-fine metal powder, MLS can create tiny components and functioning mechanical units
With the MLS process, 3D MicroPrint can create complex metal components for watches, finite aerospace technologies, and medical devices
3D MicroPrint has been using Molybdenum, Tungsten, and Stainless Steel 316L (1.4404) for the tiny prints
Micro laser sintering can print layer thicknesses less than 5 micrometers
Like direct metal laser sintering, the MLS process uses a laser to print metal layer by layer
The MLS process utilizes powder particles that are 5 micrometers or less
Germany-based companies, 3D-Micromac AG, a provider of laser micromachining systems, and EOS GmbH, an e-Manufacturing group, have teamed up to form a new organization dubbed 3D MicroPrint GmbH. The new enterprise is developing a new micro laser sintering technology (MLS) for 3D printing tiny metal components to meet the demands of Makers and professionals alike.
