Laser-based material processing for the creation of complex 3D metal parts

Fonon’s 3D laser metal printing systems use a layered, digitally-driven additive manufacturing process that directs high-quality, focused laser energy to fuse metal powders into 3D objects. Production-quality parts and metal prototypes at sizes up to 1.5 meters x 3 meters can be built directly from a 3D computer model.

Early adopters of customized 3D printing systems are benefitting in several industries, including aerospace, medical, military industrial, and automotive.
