Sheet Lamination is one of the 7 additive manufacturing processes defined by ISO/ASTM and is the process of building a 3D object by stacking and laminating sheets of material. Most commonly used materials are paper and metal foil and mainly used to produce coloured objects in a high detailed resolution.
Sheet lamination can be categories into the following four trademarked processes;
- Laminated Object Manufacturing (LOM)
- Selective Deposition Lamination (SDL)
- Ultrasonic Additive Manufacturing (UAM)
- Selective Lamination Composite Object Manufacturing (SLCOM)
