What is the difference between the Laser Metal Deposition (LMD) and the Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) ThermaViz® Sensors?

Answer: The melt pool in the DMLS process is significantly smaller and moves at much higher speeds; therefore the DMLS sensor operates at a higher frame rate and increased resolution. Both LMD and DMLS sensors record in real time, but only the LMD process is slow enough to visualize in live display, real time.
