Metal Additive Manufacturing has enabled manufacturing of parts previously considered impossible to make. However, the full potential of laser powder bed fusion (L-PBF) for series production has yet to be unlocked due to tediously slow build rates, keeping the cost of additively manufactured parts too high.
There have been attempts to speed up L-PBF processes using lasers with higher average power or by aggregating more lasers in a machine tool. These approaches to enhance productivity are costly and compromise on the quality that L-PBF aims to deliver.
But what if there is a smarter and simpler way to achieve fast build rates without trade-offs? And what if you could simultaneously optimize process windows and predict outcomes?
The next frontier in laser powder bed fusion is here.
Join nLIGHT, Aconity3D and FLOW-3D AM on Wednesday, November 4th at 5PM CET/11AM EST/8AM PST for a webinar to learn how the productivity of L-PBF is being advanced in unprecedented ways with the latest generation of lasers, machine tools, and process modeling technologies.
