Our additive manufacturing laboratory puts 3D printing power in the hands of researchers. Located in the Engineering Centers Building, the lab is equipped with two metal additive manufacturing systems: EOS M290 and LENS MR7.

EOS M290

A Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) powder bed 3D printer, EOS M290 gives researchers the capability to produce highly complex and precise geometries—with support structure*—directly from CAD data. Stainless steel-316L, maraging steel and aluminum are currently available for fabricating metal parts.

*Support structure is porous and can be removed by machining.

A direct metal deposition 3D printer, the LENS MR7 allows researchers to produce vertically extruded structures—without support structure—directly from CAD data. This system can process a wide variety of metals, including titanium, nickel-based superalloys, stainless steels and tool steels, while four powder feeders allow the production of gradient materials, composites and alloys. In addition to manufacturing parts, it can also repair defective parts.
