Plan to attend The IMTS 2018 Conferences to expand your industry knowledge as you learn from the pros.

This presentation will explore the different ways to take full advantage of the direct metal laser sintering (DMLS) process. We will discuss some of the design considerations, such as surface finish, internal features, stresses, and support requirements. Knowing how to work around some of these limitations will open up many new design opportunities. We will also explore how DMLS can be used as a solution for low-volume production parts.

Registration opens soon, so check out the site for more information.
