Binder jetting - description of the process

Binder jetting, also referred to as “Drop on Powder” (DOP), builds up a plastic component in layers in a powder bed. In contrast to laser-based technologies such as selective laser sintering, a binder is used to join the powder particles, which adheres the contours of the component on the same layer and across all the layers to one another. The components obtain their final hardness in the subsequent tempering process.

Benefits of binder jetting

  • High level of detail
  • Low mechanical strength
  • Good post-processing capability
