SLM 3D printing technology is developed on the basis of SLS 3D printing, and the basic principles of these two precision quality machining technologies are similar. SLM technology requires complete melting of metal powder to form metal parts directly. Therefore, lasers with high power density are required. Before the laser beam starts to scan, the horizontal powder laying roller first spreads the metal powder on the substrate in the processing chamber, and then the laser beam will press on the current layer. The profile information selectively melts the powder on the substrate to process the profile of the current layer, then the lifting system can descend the distance of a layer thickness, roll the powder spreading roller, and then spread the metal powder on the processed current layer, and then the equipment adjusts into The next layer is processed, and so on, until the entire part is processed. The entire processing process is carried out in a vacuum or gas-protected processing chamber to prevent the metal from reacting with other gases at high temperatures.
At present, rapid manufacturing of complex metal parts is playing a significant role in the development of the aerospace and other high-tech industries and is popular among suppliers who offer 3D printing manufacturing services. SLM can directly produce metal parts with high density, high strength, high precision and good mechanical properties in any complex shape, speeding up manufacturing and reducing costs. What's more, SLM can make complex metal parts that cannot be machined by traditional manufacturing methods. The density of the standard metal processed by the SLM process exceeds 99%, and its good mechanical properties are comparable to the traditional process.
