  • Laser Engineered Net Shaping™ (LENS™) is an emerging Solid Freeform Fabrication (SFF) process capable of producing fully dense metallic parts with complex shapes directly from a computer-aided drawing (CAD) without the need for molding or tooling. The LENS™ process also shows promise in producing components with graded compositions. One potential application is the production of steel – copper die casting materials. Copper is currently being considered for deposition on dies made out of steel… CONTINUE READING
