Selective Laser Melting (SLM) is an additive manufacturing technique that allows the fabrication of full-density 3D components in a layer-by-layer fashion through the deposition of fine metallic powders. Subsequent heating with a focused laser beam whose position is controlled by a galvanometric scanning head melts specific regions of the deposited layer. In this way, it is possible to produce final components or prototypes with complex geometry based on 3D CAD models.
Components can be produced with SLM in stainless, maraging, high-speed and tool steels, as well as nickel superalloys, titanium, aluminium, chrome, copper, bronze, cobalt, gold, silver and platinum.
