Aluminum AlSi10Mg

Direct Metal Laser Melting (DMLM)

Aluminum AlSi10Mg
Aluminum AlSi10Mg is traditionally a die-casting material characterized by low weight and good thermal properties, strength, and hardness. Aluminum AlSi10Mg makes a good candidate for lower cost DMLM prototypes, but is also seen in production parts, and can be post-machined.

Key features

  • Low weight
  • Good thermal properties, strength, and hardness
  • Fast building
  • Excellent machinability


  • Thin walls
  • Complex geometries
  • Lower cost prototypes
  • Aerospace and automotive

What is the difference between Direct Metal Laser Melting (DMLM) and Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS)?
