- Paste and ink-based 3D method
- Nozzle-based method, for example the laser deposit welding with powder (LPA) and wire (LDA)
- And the powder-pack method, for example the selective laser beam fusion SLM and the electron beam fusion EBM
In laser deposit welding, materials such as a Nickel, different steel alloys and carbides are used in particular. In LDA, Nickel, Titanium, Aluminium alloys, Copper alloys and different stainless steels are used. In the powder-back method, you can find different steels, Nickel and Cobalt alloys, as well as Titanium and hard metals. In EBM, the focus lies on the use of powders such as Ti6Al4V, Ti CP, ASTM, F75 for implants and components for aerospace. With the different methods, metallic and intermetallic materials, plastics, functional materials, as well as multi-material systems can be processed. Design changes are also easy and quick to implement, as you only need the geometry data.
