While Powder Bed Fusion and Binder Jetting evolved to also using metals, Directed Energy Deposition was specifically developed for this class of materials. We introduce the process principle and variations, benefits and applications of the Additive Manufacturing technology.
Whole layers are generated of cut sheet material layers, which are bonded together before cutting them into the desired shape. We introduce the process principle, benefits and applications of the Additive Manufacturing technology Sheet Lamination.
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!
This week, we move back from thermoplastics to UV-curing resins, which are deposited in a different way. Together with binder jetting, material jetting is the only Additive Manufacturing process that can print in color. We introduce the process principle and look at benefits and applications of Material Jetting.
Material Extrusion is the most widespread Additive Manufacturing technology. This week, we look at the process principle, materials used and at benefits and applications of this technology.
Powder Bed Fusion (PBF) is one of the oldest Additive Manufacturing technologies invented in the 80s. However, its suitability for end-use parts and its constant innovations are driving this technology further ahead. This week we look at two important variations of Powder Bed Fusion.
This week, we are moving from thermosets to thermoplastics and specifically the Powder Bed Fusion process. It is an Additive Manufacturing process in which thermal energy selectively fuses regions of a powder bed (ASTM F42 Committee).
This week, the spotlight is on the Additive Manufacturing technology Vat Photopolymerization (VP, SLA, DLP). I explain the general process principle and its variations. Furthermore, I look at the material class that is commonly used and discuss benefits and applications of the process.
Additive Manufacturing (AM) oder 3D-Druck ist zu einer Konstanten in unseren Produktdesign- und Entwicklungszyklen geworden und hält Einzug in immer mehr neue Produkte. Bei NETZSCH Analysieren & Prüfen sehen wir immer mehr Kunden aus dem Bereich der additiven Fertigung, die unsere Instrumente zur Materialauswahl und Prozessoptimierung einsetzen. Aus diesem Grund haben wir diese Videoserie vorbereitet und freuen uns, endlich mit unserer Videoserie “Materialwissenschaft in der Additiven Fertigung” zu starten.
Welcome to week 1 of Material Science in Additive Manufacturing! This initial week of our video series is dedicated to generating a common understanding of Additive Manufacturing (AM), the different categories and tradenames along with the typical process flow. Enjoy!
