3D models for visualization or simulation help engineers in developing products or during customer presentations. Various parts for equipment and measuring instruments can be constructed quickly and easily in different qualities using rapid prototyping.
On special selective laser melting (SLM) machines, we are able to manufacture high-temperature-resistant and corrosion-resistant components with conventional structures or bionic lightweight designs.
Selective laser melting involves fusing metallic powder together in layers to make components. The construction of parts in layers permits complex designs that are impossible to realize today using conventional methods.
As well as simple plastics, we use virtually all weldable metals for selective laser melting:
- Stainless steel
- Nickel-base alloys (IN 718)
- Cobalt-chromium alloys (Mar M509)
Rapid prototyping means MTU Aero Solutions can offer you maximum design freedom, flexibility and productivity.
