More complex molds are laser-sintered faster by EOS machine


Rapid prototyping and manufacturing specialist, CRDM, High Wycombe, has upgraded its Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) facility to enable faster production and higher quality. The new DMLS machine is an EOSINT M 250 Xtended from EOS, Warwick. CRDM has also improved its capability for producing DMLS parts by installing a new data preparation software called EOSTYLE. Tooling such as injection and blow molds can now be built from CAD models in 20-micron thick layers of powder, rather than the previous limit of 50-micron layers. The finer resolution allows more complex tools to be produced and minimizes subsequent hand polishing, cutting two to three days off the typical lead-time of 15 working days from order to delivery. Wear resistance is now better than that of hard aluminium tooling. Besides, the laser-sintered tools can be polished so that the surfaces leave no discernible witness mark on the plastic parts produced, even on searching materials like polypropylene and polyethylene.
