Summary

Rapid prototyping is one of the processes that are grouped under the general heading of Additive Manufacturing. Other processes available under this heading are ‘Layer manufacturing’ or ‘Solid freeform fabrication’ (SFF) processes. This process has initially been used in product development and is now starting to be deployed in rapid manufacturing. Many rapid manufacturing processes use industrial lasers as an energy source. A new type of industrial laser has appeared recently that is particularly suitable for metal processes. This Application Note explains why the fiber laser is suitable for this application area and gives detail on its use in laser sintering or selective laser melting.
