LASERFLEX Conflux metal 3D printer combines PBF with new process

ECN , a Netherlands based research institute, will showcase a new metal 3D printing technology at formnext 2017. ECN says Direct Multi Metal Printing is combination of a powder bed approach and a new process. Adding this new process to conventional Powder Bed Fusion (PBF) has several advantages ECN tell us. These include a “low internal stress build-up during densification, resulting in low residual stress and improved resolution” and “homogenous microstructure, resulting in high quality material properties without annealing.” Direct Multi Metal 3D Printing involves several stages, starting with dispersion based application of metal powders. Metal powder is applied […]
