Green Light SLM Method for Copper

Fraunhofer ILT researchers are exploring using selective laser melting (SLM) to additively manufacture (AM) components made of copper alloys and pure copper. While SLM is used to process steels, titanium, and aluminum alloys, as well as nickel and cobalt alloys, copper is a struggle. SLM is currently only suited for copper alloys due to pure copper reflecting most of the laser radiation, Fraunhofer ILT researchers hope to develop a laser beam source that operates with green rather than infrared light by the end of 2017.

Mass Manufacturing with HP’s Metal Jet

Earlier this week, tech giant HP, Inc., launched HP Metal Jet, their first metal additive manufacturing (AM) machine for the mass manufacturing of production-grade metal parts. Volkswagen will be among the first companies to receive functional metal parts for the automotive industry. HP claims the machine is up to 50 times more productive than other binder jet and selective laser melting AM methods.
