Our material portfolio contains different metals and polymers, ensuring maximum flexibility for every specific use case. You can learn more about the main characteristics of our materials in our available data sheets below
Our AM technologies & materials
Laser Powder Bed Fusion (L-PBF) is used for manufacturing complex and dimensionally stable metal parts. It requires an inert gas atmosphere and a laser, whose thermal energy is used to melt metal powder which is stored in a powder bed.
Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) is a technology quite similar to Laser Powder Bed Fusion (L-PBF), but instead of metal, plastic materials build the basis to create parts. It is equally capable of creating highly- accurate parts.
Multi Jet Fusion (MJF) is a powder bed technology that builds up the manufactured parts layer-by-layer. It is a very accurate manufacturing technology with short building times as well as a high output in terms of volume.
Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) produces parts out of thermo-plastics with a heated and moveable nozzle. The technology is cost-efficiency and has short end-to-end lead times while offering scalability.

An abrasive medium is applied to the component under high pressure. By using different media (e.g. corundum, sand or glass beads), both functional (achieving a certain surface roughness) and optical (polishing the surface) finishing can be performed.
In the dyeing process, the plastic component is immersed in a water bath. The resulting chemical reaction causes the dye to penetrate the component. Characteristics of this are, on the one hand, a homogeneous color gradient and, on the other hand, an unchanging but more scratch-resistant surface.
During painting additional color is applied to the printed part. This can be done by using a professional spray painting system. To get the desired output the part is properly prepared through accurate cleaning and by applying a clearcoat. Painting can be particularly useful to enhance the design of your printed part or to facilitate the evaluation of a printed prototype.
Sanding is performed for smoothing the part and removing any obvious blemishes, such as support marks or blobs using sandpaper. The chosen sandpaper depends on the layer height and print quality desired.
The sealing process is performed with an aqueous solution to close the outer surface or skin of the part and fill in small pores that could be in the part’s surface. The sealing solution is manually applied or through dipping depending on the part’s geometry.
In the smoothing process, the plastic component is reworked by a chemical reaction. The top layer of the component is dissolved by a medium in a solution bath and the result is a very smooth surface.
In tumbling, the metal or plastic part is reworked by grinding media in a container. The parts are deburred, finely ground and polished by vibration or rotation of the container.
Polishing is a finishing process for smoothing a workpiece's surface by using an abrasive. By repeating this process throughout different stages with reduced roughness of the abrasive, you create a smooth and polished surface.
During heat treatment, the material is heated to a desired temperature. After reaching and remaining at this temperature, the material is cooled back down. As a result, the material properties can be specifically adapted to individual use cases. For specifications of the heat treatment procedures carried out for each material, visit the corresponding data sheets.
We offer CNC machining for post-processing which includes turning, milling and drilling among other possibilities. Advantages of CNC machining are its dimensional stability, low surface roughness and its flexibility for customer-specific requirements. CNC machining requires a drawing for our engineers to assess the work required. Tolerances available upon request.
