Fonon Technologies’ 3D Fusion system uses a high-powered laser to fuse together metal nanopowders, layer by layer, to form functional 3D parts. The direct metal laser sintering process takes place in a tightly controlled vacuum or inert gas process atmosphere, which is said to be particularly necessary for titanium and some other oxygen-sensitive metals. Once complete, the part undergoes post processing, including heat treatment, surface finishing and coating, per part design specification.
