Engineering and Management audience
Understand, how your company can benefit from Binder Jetting either as a user or supplier of the technology.
Metal Binder Jetting technology goes back to a development at MIT which originally focused on sand casting forms. Since then, EXONE developed the first metal process based on binder jetting technology followed by DIGITAL METAL. DESKTOP METAL and HEWLETT PACKARD are among the latest suppliers that introduced Binder Jetting systems to the market. The technology principle is still based on the original MIT patents which refer to a powder bed of sand or metal powder on which a fluid binder is locally applied by a nozzle array similar to 2D inkjet printing technology. This fluid binder solidifies by applying heat. After printing, the powder cake is being removed from the system and placed in a curing furnace. Depending on the binder, the curing temperature is between 100-200°C and takes around 24 h.
The AMPOWER Metal Binder Jetting workshop will enable you to fully understand todays and future potential and limitations of the technology and how to utilize it. As a user or supplier of Additive Manufacturing technologies, you will understand how you can access this innovative technology, learn about potential applications and material properties and understand the true cost and productivity structure. The workshop is based on several studies AMPOWER conducted with leading metal Additive Manufacturing players and enables participants to have an independent evaluation of how they can benefit from the technology.
