System Description:

LaserComb series of 3D metal printing system is designed for precision and rapid transition of metal printed parts from prototype to production based on a common family of geometric shapes and application specific metal type.

LaserComb technology using one precision mechanical X-axis and one optical generating high resolution bit map image across the Y-axis, resulting in ability to use multi KW lasers to achieve high printing speed and consistent repeatability.

Each 3D FUSION metal printing system is designed for the rapid transition of metal printed parts from prototype to production based on a common family of geometric shapes and application specific metal type. The process starts with a comprehensive review of 3D CAD files and part specifications optimizing the XYZ build-plate dimensions for minimum powder usage. Based on the part specification, the company selects the best-fit building block technologies from it 3D Fusion library of patents, licenses, proprietary metal IP and next-generation hardware representing the fastest path to MRL 10 manufacturing production readiness.Desktop Metal printing specialist acknowledge that current generation metal printing systems manufacture metal printed parts with wide unit-to-unit variations with very few companies announcing MRL6 capabilities. Each of the company’s 3DFusion building block technologies incrementally eliminate the system processing conditions that contribute to the wide fluctuations of metal printing parts from the same machine and from machine-to-machine.

Automotive

automobile partsHighly complex parts previously unrealizable through traditional means now allow automotive designers to improve automotive efficiencies and reduce part counts while eliminating tooling cost leading to more fuel efficient vehicles. With Laser Photonics highly-automated based direct drive motion system technology, automotive engine blocks are now possible to metal print.

Military & Defense

From maintenance centers, naval ships, to military outposts, 3D metal printing systems are changing the entire fleet management workflow from maintaining huge inventories to quick printing replacement parts on demand. Metal printing is having a profound affect on next-generation capabilities of our soldiers including battlefield armor, special purpose ballistic munitions, and weapons. BTS technology allows replacing 100’s of warhead components to only a few achieving intricate designs to control explosion pattern, blast direction, and other special purpose components for mission specific applications.

Space

Private companies, NASA and other groups are developing new concepts to launch 3D printing into the final frontier. Long-term missions benefit greatly from having onboard manufacturing capabilities reducing the need to maintain costly inventory on the International Space Station and future spacecrafts.. Space colonies would be self-sufficient with the capabilities to manufacture spare parts/tools. BTS technology opens the door to metal printing larger rocket, missile, and propulsion based components and subassemblies.

Aerospace & Industrial Applications

Tooling inserts featuring conformal cooling channels to lightweight structures for aerospace, applications include turbine blades, aircraft frames & structures, jet engines, fuel systems, guide vanes & other reduce weight components contributing to lighter aircrafts reducing fuel consumption. Laser Photonics BTS large build-plate technology expands applications to include turbine rings with diameters out to 1.5 meters and long structures & frames out to 3 meters.

Medical Applications

Patient specific implants featuring hybrid structures and textures unlock manufacturing capabilities that combine free-form shapes and intricate lattice structures improving Osseo integration leading to much improved patient outcomes. BTS technology optimized for biocompatible metal powders like titanium target specific surface properties that generate expected responses from neighboring cells and tissue of orthopedic implants, such as hip, knee and spinal devices.
