Additive Manufacturing & Selective Laser Melting
Additive manufacturing covers a variety of manufacturing processes which is based on the principle of adding material to create as opposed to the traditional methodes that subtract material such as machining.
Direct metal laser sintering (DMLS) is:
1. A layer of material powder is layed onto a substrate of the same material composition
2. The material is bombarded with laser selectively to melt and shortly after solidify that area where a layer forms
3. Subsequently a new layer of powder is spread over the build surface
4. Successive layers are molten with the laser beam and fuses it to the previous layer until the desired component is produced
Our team help a variety of companies in many industries such as automotive, electronics, etc. as they work to adopt a new tsunami of manufacturing possibilities. We work to bring your most challenginng and forward looking projects to realization.
"Additive Manufacturing absolutely has the disruptive potential, there are three key elements that will help to unleash it - additive thinking, robust and accessible processes and cost."

Why Metal Additive
Metal additive manufacturing enables component designs to be realized that were previously impossible to manufacture using traditional manufacturing processes. Multiple machine parts can be integrated printed as one part
Using 3D printing to manufacture metallic parts is the new economical alternative for a multitude of different applications in most major lines of businesses. Daenatech puts the customer first, and takes all steps necessary to ensure longevity and reliability when it comes to 3D printing metal. Over the many years of experience with additive manufacturing, we have the knowledge required to manipulate the process to the customer’s specific needs. 3D printing metal is the door, partner with Daenatech, and we will walk you through it step by step.
Complex, Lightweight Parts
Legacy parts can be optimized manufactured with new material options. New alloys and composits become available for AM every year and regrettable parts can be replaced with something stronger.
Thanks to AM, the cost of rapid prototyping is a fraction of what it used to be. Rapid prototyping enables industry participants to have their prototypes available to them for testing much sooner and cost effective.
