Sheet Lamination Printing Service
3Diligent's sheet lamination 3D printing service (LOM, SDL, Ultrasonic Welding) provides customers a cost-effective path to full-color 3D mockups, especially for less complex geometries.
Sheet Lamination is the process of building up a part using sheets of material, commonly paper or metal foil. In this process, sheets of material are bound together to build up the part. For paper, this binding is achieved with adhesive or laminate, whereas ultrasonic waves are used with metal to cause the sheets of foil to vibrate and mesh. In both versions of the process, the outline of the part is cut into the sheet with a laser or a blade, a process that can take place after each layer or a number of layers. This process is ideal for full-color prints of visual mockups that are not terribly complex, have internal structures, or expected to undergo very much stress. Additionally, the process is useful for metal printing processes where the thermal stress of melting metal powder would be problematic.
