3D metal printing is an additive production process (meaning that the material is added). This makes it different from most other production processes, which involve material being removed. K3D uses an environmentally friendly process in which metal powder is melted down by lasers and formed into a solid product.
K3D uses high-end production machines. We are extremely proud of our MetalFAB1. It is the first integrated 3D metal printer capable of serial production. The only company printing with this elite machine before K3D was Airbus. The MetalFAB1’s automated robotic system guarantees high productivity. The impressive technical specifications of this machine are just the cherry on top of everything else we offer you:
More information on the MetalFAB1 by Additive Industries is available here.
3D metal printing can be done using different metals. At K3D, we have the following metals available as printing materials: aluminium, maraging steel, stainless steel, titanium and Inconel. We are more than happy to assist you in determining the type of metal best suited to your 3D printing needs.
