Quality Assurance of Selective Laser Melting Applications

By Thomas Gruenberger Key differentiation criteria for Additive Manufacturing (AM) technologies are freedom of design, cost advantage, customization, and time to market. Direct metal laser sintering (DMLS) AM technology is ideal for serial production for industries like aerospace. Setting up a process means mapping the input parameters (e.g. machine and process parameters and part geometry) […]
