Dimlaser® located in Leiria, Portugal, entered the metal Additive Manufacturing sector some ten years ago. Seeing the potential for the technology in Portugal, the company began supplying the plastic forming industry with a range of conformally cooled mould inserts built using LaserCusing machines from Concept Laser.
Today, the company serves a number of different markets and additively manufactures a wide selection of components. Discussing the company’s growth over the years, Fátima Fontes, Dimlaser’s commercial manager stated, “Quickly we were able to establish ourselves in the conformal cooling market and start the development of new products for other markets. Then we looked internationally, working directly and indirectly for foreign clients looking to the Portuguese market as their supplier.”
The company invested in both the production technology and human resources required to enable it to respond quickly, and in a qualified manner, to customer demands. “We strive to be partners with our clients, advising and accompanying the projects from the initial idea to the final product,” added Fontes.
In addition to serving clients in the moulding sector, the company has provided support and worked with customers in the automotive, jewellery, dental and medical industries. It now offers a range of services and can produce components in many materials including stainless steel, aluminium alloys, titanium and more.
