Binder Jetting: Material Science in Additive Manufacturing

Binder Jetting: Material Science in Additive Manufacturing

The Additive Manufacturing technology Binder Jetting is very similar to Powder Bed Fusion. Although there are many similarities of the two processes, the material properties that can be achieved are very different. Learn about the process principle and applications of Binder Jetting!

Last week, we introduced the process principle and various applications of Material Jetting. Watch the videos here, if you missed them!

Now, we will focus on this week’s topic: Binder Jetting.

What is Binder Jetting?

Binder Jetting is an Additive Manufacturing process in which a liquid bonding agent is selectively deposited to join powder materials (ASTM F42 Committee).

Very similar to Powder Bed Fusion but instead of a heat source an “adhesive” is used to bond the particles together. Although there are many similarities of the two processes, the material properties that can be achieved are very different.

Process Principle of Binder Jetting

Focusing on the Binder Jetting process, we look at the process steps of this Additive Manufacturing technology. Now that we are familiar with a variety of techniques, we also highlight similarities and differences between Binder Jetting and Powder Bed Fusion.

Benefits and Applications of Binder Jetting

We weigh the benefits of the Additive Manufacturing technology Binder Jetting against its disadvantages. Additionally, we go through the wide range of different applications in detail.

Building a community

This video series is not a one-way road! Please leave your questions in the YouTube commentary. We will answer your questions and use them to fill our pool of questions from which we will choose the most frequently asked ones to be answered in our live events throughout 2021. Furthermore, we encourage you to have discussions in the comment section to also learn from and challenge your peers.

Next week, we will focus on Sheet Lamination! Stay tuned!
