Open Additive

OpenAdditive™ is the unifying theme behind the research, products, and services of Universal Technology Corporation's AM business unit.  
We're driving to accelerate AM.

Profile Description

Why Laser Powder Bed Fusion?

While our work is not limited to LPBF (aka, Selective Laser Melting, Direct Metal Laser Sintering, etc.), it certainly is the primary focus of our research, products, and services. LPBF uses laser energy to selectively melt metal powders in a layer-by-layer process to build up a three-dimensional part. LPBF is the leading additive manufacturing process for complex metal parts requiring excellent mechanical properties. Compared to other metal AM processes, LPBF has superior dimensional accuracy with minimal post-processing requirements (e.g., no debindering or sintering). A wide range of materials are available, with significant ability for application-specific customization.
