Laser Powder Bed Fusion of Metals (PBF-LB/M)
Laser Powder Bed Fusion of Metals (PBF-LB/M), also known as Selective Laser Melting (SLM), is a powder based additive manufacturing process. It can manufacture complex metal prototypes or series parts rapidly and without any tooling.
Components manufactured by laser melting can be heat treated, welded and reworked with typical processing methods.
