Sinter-based additive manufacturing technologies
Additive manufacturing technologies can be divided into two categories, direct and indirect. The last is also known as sinter-based additive manufacturing and involves a two-step process. During this process, a green part is first printed using a sinter-based additive manufacturing technology, followed by debinding and sintering.
Advantages of sinter-based additive manufacturing are the high productivity and the fact that no support structures are needed, which strongly influences the surface quality of a component and reduces costly post-processing. In addition, the component properties achieved are comparable to the established MIM technology.
Cold Metal Fusion
CMF technology enables the production of larger components than LMM and MBJ. This process is characterised by high productivity, but achieves not the same surface quality as LMM or MBJ.
Fused Deposition Modeling
FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling) technology is also called Metal Extrusion. This process is characterised by high productivity and is more suitable for larger, less precise components.
