Selective powder deposition: bringing multi-material capability to industrial additive manufacturing – Presented by Kevin Eckes, Aerosint SA

Selective powder deposition: bringing multi-material capability to industrial additive manufacturing – Presented by Kevin Eckes, Aerosint SA at the 3D Printing Materials Conference, on April 17, 2018, at Brightlands Chemelot Campus, Geleen, The Netherlands. Read the interview

Selective laser sintering (SLS) and HP’s multi-jet fusion (MJF) are currently the most industry-focused additive manufacturing techniques. These powder bed fusion techniques are capable of small series production of parts with complex, overhanging, geometries. Still, they are limited by their ability to process a single material at once. Truly forward-thinking manufacturing should be focused on developing ways to fabricate complex, multi-material mechanical assemblies at once. In this talk I will present Aerosint’s selective powder deposition technology and its potential to enable industrial scale multi-material 3D printing.

About Aerosint SA 
Since its inception, the SLS (selective laser sintering) process was designed to 3D print objects by selectively laser melt powder layers composed of a unique powder.

3D Printing Materials Conference 2018About 3D Printing Materials Conference
The 3D Printing Materials Conference [April 17, 2018, Geleen, The Netherlands] The 3D Printing Materials Conference is a platform and information interface enabling an exchange of informations on market requirements, research interests and current results, skills and resources as well as facilitating the building of future partnerships. Academics, engineers, designers, and managers are invited to lecture on their state-of-the-art developments and future prospects or display their products and offers as exhibitor.

The conference focuses on Polymers (new materials), application of polymers in 3D Printing and multi material 3D Printing.
