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).
