Morris Adopts Direct Metal Laser Sintering Technology


Cincinnati-based Morris Technologies Inc. can now fabricate titanium alloy parts using direct metal laser sintering (DMLS) technology. The company has purchased an M 270Xtended machine, which has titanium and aluminum capabilities. The machine enables the creation of complex internal and external geometries to accommodate the needs of biomedical implants. It also imparts a high strength-to-weight ratio, says Greg Morris, CEO and COO of the company. “We expect to begin production of Ti-6Al-4V/ELI parts in late summer.”

Morris is a rapid prototyping company that turns designs into production-quality metal parts in hours through its wide range of capabilities, including DMLS. DMLS offers advantages over other methods because it eliminates tooling, makes parts with complex internal and external geometries in a single operation, and produces multiple parts at the same time. Parts built in EOS titanium Ti64 fulfill the requirements of ASTM F1472 (for Ti-6Al-4V) and ASTM F136 (for Ti-6Al-4V ELI) regarding maximum concentration of impurities.
