What exactly is metal 3D printing?
3D printing, also referred to as “additive manufacturing” is a cutting-edge manufacturing technology that lays the groundwork for modern industries’ success. It not only improves the efficiency of fine parts manufacturing, but it also solves the material consumption problem that plagues traditional subtractive manufacturing. With this cutting-edge technology, businesses can be design-oriented and CAD data-supported, fully automated, and digitally manufacture products made of various materials.
Metal 3D printing is the process of manufacturing designed metals using metal powder as the material. Metal 3D printing is now widely used in aerospace, automotive, energy, healthcare, and other industries. Simultaneously, competition in the metal 3D printing industry is increasing, making it difficult for manufacturers to find suitable printing equipment. To achieve efficient production, a high-performance, and cost-effective metal 3D printer is required.

What can be 3D printed in metal?
A wide range of materials and designs can now be manufactured thanks to advances in 3D printing technology. Unlike traditional manufacturing, 3D printing is a digital process that includes everything from design to optimization, simulation to process, and full-cycle equipment maintenance. Metal 3D printers are intended to overcome limitations in creativity and finished products, which is a key distinction between additive manufacturing and traditional manufacturing processes. Metal 3D printing technology has given the industry new life and opened up endless possibilities for customers. It has found use in the medical industry, such as dentistry, spinal implants, and orthopedic appliances, as well as aerospace and aviation applications.
While other metal 3D printing manufacturers are still selling equipment, Chamlion has begun to deploy the dental cloud to the world. Zhitao Wang said: “3D printers can only solve the production convenience of one process of dental manufacturing. Dental manufacturing is a highly customized manufacturing process, and each production process is different. We can only help our customers and achieve better improvements by the whole dental solution with material, software, and equipment”

What is the process of metal 3D printing?
Consider how common printers operate: jetting or lasering various materials onto paper to form a specific pattern from point to surface. Yes, 3D printing is a comparable but more complicated three-dimensional printing process. It is a technique that uses a layer-by-layer accumulation of discrete materials (powder, liquid, silk, etc.) to create physical objects based on three-dimensional CAD design data, resulting in significant savings in equipment costs and energy consumption.
The most widely used technology is selective laser melting, also known as metal powder bed fusion. The laser directly heats the metal powder, which melts and quickly solidifies into the designed metal product. This technique necessitates the use of a laser beam with a high absorption rate in order to better melt the metal powder. Metal 3D printing materials include stainless steel, nickel-based alloys, cobalt chrome, titanium alloy, aluminum alloy, and others.
Our motivation comes from seeing our customers succeed. We are dedicated to the development of high-performance, low-cost 3D printing machines. Chamlion has grown into a market leader in dental 3D printing in just five years. Simultaneously, Chamlion has established more than 130 printing centers around the world. Because our equipment is simple to use, of high quality, and easy to use, printing centers in the world can upload data to Chamlion Cloud to place an order. “CAD design, printing, and digital manufacturing will all be automated.
Many customers have given us their trust and support.

What kind of printing service can be expected?
To obtain high-precision and high-efficiency products, most customers will opt for multi-laser metal 3D printers.
Chamlion, for example, employs customized core optics and a comprehensive set of flame-retardant filter elements to make the entire manufacturing process safer and more reliable. A convenient and easy-to-use software system can also significantly reduce training costs and operating time for high-tech products. The manufacturing progress and parameters must be displayed in real-time during the printing process in order to monitor the work progress. Chamlion control software can fully meet the needs of the production control system, track the entire process intelligently, and provide customers with a simple interface.
The key to long-term success is excellent after-sales service. Following the completion of the equipment transaction, we will provide training courses to assist customers in operating metal 3D printers proficiently. We can provide customers with complete 3D printing technology application solutions in addition to professional tracking maintenance. Please contact us for more information!
