One of the most applied additive manufacturing method for metals is based on a laser scanner and a powder-bed where the metal powder is distributed over a tray and the processing laser melts it according to the desired pattern. After the pattern is created, a new layer of powder is added and the process repeats. The process enables accurate processing and elimination of spatter is essential. High-speed imaging with CAVILUX laser illumination provides high-quality images of the process.
