EPLUS 3D Metal Additive Manufacturing
Machines & Materials For Your Metal 3D Printing Demands
Eplus3D metal printers are a lab from entry-level models to multi-layer machines for additive production at industrial grades. We also provide advanced processes industrial metal 3D printing with the most various metal materials compatible, including aluminum alloys, titanium alloys, cobalt chrome, nickel-based alloys, stainless steel, tool steels, copper alloy, and other micro-grade metal powders.
Metal Additive Manufacturing Processes
There are a number of different technologies used in the metal Additive Manufacturing systems available today.
Systems can be classified by the energy source or the way the material is being joined, for example using a binder, laser, heated nozzle, etc. Classification is also possible by the group of materials being processed, such as plastics, metals, or ceramics. The feedstock state, with the most common ones being solid (powder, wire, or sheet) or liquid, is also used to define the process.
What is Metal Additive Manufacturing?
Metal additive manufacturing integrates comprehensive technologies such as powder bed laser fusion, metal binder jetting and laser cladding. MPBF™ (Metal Powder Bed Fusion), as used by EPLUS 3D metal 3D printers, follows the principle of the proven PBF technology for almost 30 years and is now the standard in metal 3D printing for direct industrial production. The MPBF method is primarily applied for manufacturing in demanding industries such as aerospace, automotive, dental, healthcare, tooling and machinery. Those industries demand uniform part quality with high-performance properties like those achieved by conventional casting or forging processes.
We are the leading provider for high-end metal 3D printing. With our MPBF technology, we empower our customers from different industries to achieve the highly reliable and repeatable parts production.
