Linear Cites Laser-Sintering Savings

John Tenbusch, president of Linear, says, “Given the high cost of materials and energy these days, we are always on the lookout for savings and efficiencies. Often, when we compare our production times between laser-sintering and other manufacturing methods, using DMLS is the obvious choice.”

“Linear is a creative, innovative customer,” comments Jim Fendrick, Vice President of EOS of North America. “John and his staff are constantly exploring the capabilities of DMLS to shorten manufacturing cycles and grow parts that wouldn’t be as cost-effective, or wouldn’t even be manufacturable, using traditional processes.”

DMLS on the EOSINT M 270 is a form of additive manufacturing. The process begins with a CAD file that defines each layer of a cross-sectioned model. 20 to 40 µm thin layers of metal powder are deposited onto a build platform and laser-sintered by a focused laser beam. The platform is then lowered and the process repeated layer-by-layer until a three-dimensional metal part is produced. DMLS can “grow” parts, even those with extremely complex geometries, in just a few hours.
