The "SLM" or Selective Laser Melting is a 3D printing technology that transforms titanium powder into spectacle frames through the combination of a computer and a laser. At the head of the company that combines eyewear design office and high-end model shops in Bruges and Brussels, Patrick Hoet says he began to take an interest in SLM in 2013.

How does it work? Titanium powder is placed in the printer's tray and then hardened under the action of a laser. The jet of light scans the material at frequent intervals, allowing the object to materialize in successive layers to form a complete piece. "

A titanium frame offers great strength and lightness. This holds properties of titanium. Indeed, the structure of the printed frame is not filled, which is the case when a plastic powder is used, it is either in the form of a smooth surface with vents, or in the form of a very fine honeycomb.In addition, titanium is antiallergic and stainless, greatly improving the user's comfort.

Tailor-made

The titanium glasses printed in 3D are always made-to-measure. First, the customer chooses a model. Then, scanning adapts the shape of the glasses printed in 3D to the uniqueness of a face. The data is then entered into the computer that drives the industrial 3D printer. The "Hoet Couture" frames will undoubtedly reflect your personality!
