Layered Manufacturing, balance between scale and flexibility

"The new industrial revolution will enable people to live where they like and produce what the need locally!"

The picture left shows a number of Titanium parts, built on our SLM machine and finished via Robot enhanced 5-axis milling. The Time-To-Market has been reduced from 8 weeks to 4 days and the internal channels, unique feature in layered manufacturing, enabled us to merge 3 parts into ONE! Feel free to join our Blog! We will focus on Layered Manufacturing in metals!

Great Blog, I've checked the Melotte website and I'm surprised about the possibilities. Please inform me about material proporties, minimal wall thichness and product tolerances. Is it possible to compete with lost-wax methods?

Best regards,

Collin
