All the possible ways you can 3D print with M Aerospace RTC
M Aerospace RTC offers the following technologies for prototyping and end-use parts:
Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM): This printing technology is quite well-known in the market, and the most commonly used among 3D printing beginners. The printer fuses the polymeric filament through a heated extrusion header, which injects the material layer by layer to create the desired part.
Selective Laser Sintering (SLS): Sintering of plastic powder particles: Plastic powder particles are placed on a flat printing bed, and we utilize a laser beam to melt the necessary material, adding more powder layers and repeating the process until the part is finished.
Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS): This technology is specific to sintering metal powder particles, which, as mentioned before, are distributed above a flat bed and each layer is melted with a laser beam until obtaining the final part.
Stereolithography (SLA): We use a laser beam to melt plastic, which as a liquid then transforms into solid plastic layer by layer. This technology uses liquid resin inside a tank, and by the movement of the platform (it can be raised or lowered) the liquid resin solidifies layer by layer.
PolyJet: This method is based on technology similar to inkjets. It uses photosensitive resins which are injected in specific locations and solidify, a layer at a time.
Multi Jet Fusion: A 3D printing process that uses an inkjet matrix to deposit the material on a Nylon powder bed, heats the mixture and fuses the elements, and then the layers solidify. At the end of each layer, a new powder layer is added and the process repeats until the part is complete.

Our American branch is currently in the acquisition process to obtain new technologies to satisfy our customers’ requirements. An upcoming technology we’re launching soon is:
Binder Jetting: This method can be considered a combination of two previous technologies. On a powder material layer, we deposit small drops of fusing and detailing ink on desired locations, according to the part geometry. We repeat this process until the part is complete.
