Metal 3D printers are becoming very popular.
Many 3D printer manufacturers such as 3D Systems
, Desktop Metal, Renishaw, HP, have recently released 3D printers capable of using metal. These printers use technologies such Selective Laser Sintering (SLS)
, Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS)
, and Electron Beam Melting (EBM)
. Additive manufacturing with metal is growing in popularity as the benefits of 3D printing become more and more apparent. These benefits include the ability to create complex parts with minimum orders of just 1. In addition, the cost of 3D printing metal is far lower than other manufacturing processes as well as being far lighter. If you purchase a desktop metal 3D printer, you can even 3D print metal at home!
These 3D printers are capable of printing metals such as aluminium, gallium, stainless steel, titanium, and more. 3D printers even print precious metals such as gold and silver! Due to this, metal 3D printing has applications in areas such as jewelry
, and more. We expect to see a large growth in the metal 3D printing market in the future as prices become lower and speeds increase.
