3D printing very close to series parts


Our colleagues in EMKA test and manufacturing have recently expanded their test laboratory by incorporating a state-of-the-art 3D printer that utilises the latest Laser Powder Bed Fusion (LPBF) technology. During this procedure – called selective laser sintering – minute polymer powder particles are sintered into a solid structure. The process uses a powerful laser, which is guided by a computer-aided design (CAD) model. This offers advantages in terms of sustainability and cost-effectiveness.

All tasks, including printing and polishing, are fully automated. Because the 3D printer has two construction chambers, continuous production is possible without downtime. As a result, EMKA can now not only rapidly produce its own prototypes or spare parts but also fulfil urgent customer orders without delay.
