SLM-metal powder melting
Selective Laser Melting (SLM) is a metal 3D printing technology. The molding principle is to irradiate the metal powder with laser thermal energy to initiate local melting. In the SLM manufacturing process, metal powders are heated to completely melt and fuse together. That way you have an option to 3D print complex parts directly from metal, when they are too complex for a mass manufacturing.
