Metal Additive Manufacturing, also known as Metal Additive Layer Manufacturing (MALM) uses a process of laying metal powder on a bed and then using a computer controlled laser to melt and fuse the metal at the required points. On completion of the process, the excess powder is removed and re-cycled leaving the solid metal in the required form.
The key advantage of Additive Manufacturing is the ability to enhance the design of a part in ways previously not thought possible. It is now possible to graduate metal thicknesses to give strength only where it is required, produce internal features and intimately produce assemblies or finished products in a single production cycle.
