The first 3D printed gun made sensational headlines. Practically, 3D metal printing (DMLS) is a game-changer for the firearms industry because it allows production innovation, customization, and material efficiencies for military and civilian products and parts. i3D MFG™’s most common DMLS metals used for firearm production parts are Inconel (Thermal & Strength properties), Titanium (Weight, Corrosion & Strength), and Stainless Steel (Corrosion & Strength).
Three-dimensional printing with metals eliminates engineering constraints so prominent in traditional design-for-manufacture projects. Innovations leading to weight reduction, superior performance, and new advancements in tactical gear are all highly desirable for military suppliers. i3D MFG™ is proud to be the first DMLM/DMLS provider in North America to own the EOS M280, M290 and M400 x 4. As an official Material Process Applications (MPA) site for EOS, i3D MFG™ prides itself on its DMLS/DMLM material and 3D print application innovations. From 3D printed titanium suppressors to firearm accessories, DMLM/DMLS is an excellent solution.
