Direct Metal Laser Solidification (DMLS®) 3D Printing for Military Applications

3D printing for military applications provides engineering freedom, superior product performance, and up to a 70% weight reduction. Without the traditional design-for-manufacture engineering constraints, DMLS® allows for cutting-edge defense, tactical gear, and more. i3DMFG™ is a premier service provider for EOS utilizing our M280, M290, & M400.4 machines, an advanced system that builds industrial 3D parts from metal powders. We pride ourselves on providing one of the largest selections of metal powders, including custom powders, in the United States.

DMLS® is driven by 3D CAD models to fuse microlayers of metal powders together using 400-watt lasers. This creates a virtually 100% dense and fully functional production part. i3DMFG™’s 3D-printed military products can be printed with conformal cooling lines, lattice and honeycomb designs, and complex internal geometries that would otherwise be too costly or impossible to manufacture via traditional machining or casting. These innovations result in lighter weights, advanced performance, and custom production in small batches. With DMLS®, 3D metal printed products are constructed in days or weeks instead of months or years.

We perform our military 3D printing services in the United States, meeting all ITAR requirements. i3DMFG™ is a small business, giving our clients bidding advantages with U.S. government contracts.
