Today at Formnext 2018 in Frankfurt, Stratasys unveiled further details on its new metal 3D printing platform. First unveiled earlier this year , the additive manufacturing (AM) platform is adopts a first-of-its-kind “ Layered Powder Metallurgy ” (LPM) technology, designed to make production of metal parts quicker, easier and more cost-effective than ever before for short run applications. Speaking at a press briefing, Andy Middleton, President EMEA, Stratasys, described the process as a “breakthrough” metal technology. LPM is built to drive improved efficiency and cost savings using standard Powder Metallurgy (PM) alloys, mechanical properties with high accuracy and controlled shrinkage, as well as extremely fast throughput. The company says LPM can offer cost reductions which not only compete with current metal AM technologies, but also machining. “We note that current approaches to 3D printing metal parts leave a lot to be desired – including slow post-processing, painstakingly intricate support […]
