Powder Bed Fusion

Powder Bed Fusion

Powder Bed Fusion (PBF) is a direct manufacturing process with objects accuracy using metal powder. This manufacturing technique will get you a wide range of solid products with complex geometry by using a laser. Our customers benefit from a substantial design freedom.


For the Powder Bed Fusion process, the CAD model of your 3D digital component is subdivided in different parts by a professional program. Then, a metal powder layer representing each part will be melted by using a laser on a construction plateform. Layering and melting cycles will be looped until the object is finally built. The manufactured component is removed and cleaned. The non-melted excess powder will then be recycled.


  • Quick marketing chain
  • Easy customisation and complex geometry
  • Target-cost design optimisation
  • Weak waste generation
  • Assembling reduction


  • Need an additive manufacturing approach
  • Important but limited base material range
  • Need an aftertreatment
