SLM 3D Printing Finishes
A polished finish is perfect for components that require a smooth, glossy surface. Our SLM 3D Printing service can achieve a polished finish through a range of techniques, including tumbling, sandblasting, and buffing.
A matte finish is achieved by sandblasting the component with fine grit. This creates a textured, non-reflective finish that is ideal for parts that require a non-glossy appearance.
Anodizing is an electrochemical process that creates a durable, corrosion-resistant finish on metal parts. This finish can be achieved in a range of colors, making it perfect for parts that need to be aesthetically appealing as well as functional.
Our SLM 3D Printing service can also produce parts with a painted finish. This is achieved by applying a coat of paint to the component, either by hand or using an automated process. With a range of paint options available, we can match your desired color or finish.
A brushed finish is created through a process of creating fine, directional lines on the surface of the component using abrasive grinding or sanding. This finish gives the part an industrial, brushed metal appearance that is ideal for a range of mechanical components.
A textured finish is achieved through a range of techniques, including bead blasting, sandblasting, and etching. This creates a unique, non-uniform finish that can be customized to your exact specifications.
At our state-of-the-art facility, we can apply a range of finishes to your SLM 3D Printed components to match your desired look and functionality. Contact us today to learn more about our finishing options and how we can help bring your designs to life.

SLM 3D Printing Production FAQs
SLM 3D printing is a metal additive manufacturing technology that uses a laser to melt and fuse layers of metal powder into complex shapes and parts.
SLM 3D printing can work with a variety of metal powders, including stainless steel, titanium, aluminum, cobalt chromium, and others.
SLM 3D printing works by spreading a thin layer of metal powder on a build platform and selectively melting it with a laser beam. The melted metal solidifies and fuses with the underlying layer, creating a fully dense part.
SLM 3D printing offers several advantages over traditional manufacturing methods, including greater design freedom, faster prototyping and production times, and reduced material waste.
SLM 3D printing is used in a wide range of industries, including aerospace, automotive, medical, and defense.
The maximum build size for SLM 3D printing machines varies, but it can typically range from several centimeters to several meters.
SLM 3D printing can achieve high accuracy levels, typically within a range of +/- 0.1 mm to +/- 0.2 mm, depending on the material and the machine used.
Yes, SLM 3D printing can produce functional parts with mechanical properties similar to those of traditionally manufactured parts.
