In particular, the company’s Cold Metal Fusion (CMF) 3D printing technology raises a lot of questions. Headmade is encouraging customers to reassess the Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) production method via a new set of system parameters and a polymer-infused powder. So what exactly is CMF? and what is Headmade trying to achieve with its new take on SLS?
Here to answer all these questions is Headmade Co-founder and CEO Christian Staudigel. Speaking to 3D Printing Industry, Staudigel explained the potential of CMF, and elaborated on the firm’s broader goals and objectives.
“Our sinter-based Cold Metal Fusion technology has been developed for the serial production of up to 100,000 metal parts per year, all by using an existing ecosystem of machines and processes,” said Staudigel. “This allows customers to scale from a very capital-efficient entry point, all the way to a very high production output.”
