GPI Prototype and Manufacturin
A metal 3d printer utilizes a laser beam to melt 20-60 micron layers of metal powder on top of each other. Powdered metal is spread across the entire build platform and selectively melted to previous layers. This additive process allows metal parts to be grown out of a bed of powdered metal. Metal Additive Manufacturing GPI currently has 6 DMLS machines from EOS to build metal prototypes and for metal additive manufacturing of complex end-use parts. There are 6x metal 3d printers including 2x EOS M270, 2x EOS M280, and 2x EOS M290 machines. Tooling & Conformal Cooling Tooling is a primary application for DMLM/DMLS and provides rapid manufacturing of tooling inserts and components. Conformal cooling channels can be integrated into designs, which improve both the quality and economics of injection molded parts.
