Laser Sintering for Titanium

Morris Technologies, Inc. (MTI; Cincinnati, OH), the largest supplier of direct metal laser-sintering (DMLS) parts worldwide, has purchased an EOSINT M 270 system to laser-sinter titanium.

Morris Technologies, Inc. (MTI; Cincinnati, OH), the largest supplier of direct metal laser-sintering (DMLS) parts worldwide, has purchased an EOSINT M 270 system to laser-sinter titanium. This is the first North American purchase of an EOSINT M 270 in Xtended Mode, and it is the ninth DMLS system that MTI has acquired from EOS—the most of any company or manufacturer in the world. MTI will use the new system to offer rapid prototyping and manufacturing in titanium to its customers in the aerospace and medical industries.

"We were the first U.S. firm to install DMLS equipment," says Greg Morris, CEO/COO of MTI, "and yearly demand for laser-sintering services has increased. We expect interest in titanium parts to follow the same strong demand curve."

MTI is a rapid prototyping company that turns designs into production-quality metal parts in hours through its wide range of capabilities, including DMLS. DMLS offers unparalleled advantages because it eliminates tooling, makes parts with complex internal and external geometries in a single operation, and produces multiple parts at the same time.
