Expamet (ICON)

The focus of the Expamet ICON project is to improve the productivity of the Selective Laser Melting (SLM) process on two lightweight alloys.

Additionally, the project will look at ways to improve the final product quality for parts made in the selected alloys by process monitoring and improving repeatability of the process and post-processing.
