  • Design guidelines
    It is a kind of additive manufacturing and the rapid prototyping technology of metal powder. It could be used to directly form metal parts that are close to full density with good mechanical properties. SLM technology overcomes the complexity of the manufacturing process of metal parts with the selective laser sintering (SLS) technology.
