Additive Manufacturing

Designing For Additive Manufacturing



Direct Metal Sintering (DMS)

• Precision laser melting
• Increased productivity, repeatability and flexibility
• Access to a wide range of metals and alloys
• Unmatched design and manufacturing freedom

Direct Metal Sintering is an additive manufacturing technology with the ability to build your parts in a matter of hours.

This latest technology utilizes a variety of metal and alloy materials to create strong and durable parts from your 3D CAD data without the need of tooling.

Metal parts designed with this technology have the design versatility of layer additive manufacturing that produces highly accurate and detailed parts with geometries not possible to produce before.

This technology is ideal for the production of prototypes and components with fine detail, for high temperature applications, aerospace components and custom components for motor sports and medical applications.

DMS is ideal for prototypes as well as production parts.

    Randy, Molycorp



The Direct Metal Sintering process builds up fully dense, chemically pure metal parts from 3D CAD data by melting fine powder with a laser beam, layer by layer. With layer sizes ranging from 5–30 microns, there are no limitations to part complexity.

DMS supports particle sizes as low as 5 microns, resulting in better part accuracy, surface finish and feature detail resolution. With this technology, objects with complex geometries can be built all at one time, reducing time and cost of conventional tooling. Unlike subtractive manufacturing, additive manufacturing does not leave unused cut off stock.

The parts produced using DMS are 99.8% dense and require no post sintering or other infiltration process.


Post Processing

In addition to our DMS system, we have an exceptional, fully equipped, in house machine shop.

Giving MTI the ability to post process the components, providing surface finish and any additional feature each component requires in-house with.
