Industry Changing 3D Laser Metal Sintering (Metal Printing) Technology Now Available from Fonon
Lake Mary, FL, August 29, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Fonon, the industry leader in developing high-tech fiber and CO2 laser systems for marking, cutting and engraving applications, is proud to unveil Its New 3D Additive manufacturing Equipment - the brand new 3D Metal Sintering System (3D Metal Printing).
Fonon Additive Manufacturing Technologies encompass 3D Fusion Technology or 3D Laser Metal Sintering (Commonly known as 3D Printing) Technologies.
Fonon’ s 3D FUSION™ or 3D Laser Metal Sintering (Printing) process is an emerging additive Nano Powder Manufacturing Technology with a presence in the medical industry as well as Manufacturing (Mold fabrication and Repair), Defense, aerospace and high technology engineering and electronics sectors.
3D Laser Metal Printing is a digitally driven additive manufacturing process that fuses together layer by layer of metal nano powders with high quality focused laser energy to form functional 3D metal objects. Fonon's 3D Metal printing process is formed from 3D CAD design files layered every 10 to 100 microns.
Fusion between the layers happens in a tightly controlled vacuum or inert gas process atmosphere, particularly necessary for titanium and some other oxygen sensitive metals. Once complete, the part undergoes post processing, including heat treatment, surface finishing and coating as per part design specification.
Robert Hunt, the company spokesman, stated “We are one of the Pioneering professional laser equipment companies in the USA who stepped into additive manufacturing. We believe that our vast experience in the design and manufacture of laser tools installed at most major Fortune 500 manufacturing companies will guarantee the broader penetration of exciting 3D metal fusion into industrial space. We intend to replace the generic approach to 3D Metal prototyping and replace it with development of specialized high productivity 3D Fusion systems to fit specific applications. For example the system for Jewelry printing will be completely different from the Laser Fusion system capable of manufacturing medical contact pads or missile war heads.”
