Materialise Introduces Build Processor Support for Desktop Metal Binder Jetting Systems
Support for Metal Binder Jetting
As companies scale their metal 3D printing processes and integrate these operations with existing and proven production processes, they are confronted with increasingly complex environments and diverse machine technologies. Today’s announcement supports Materialise’s strategy to provide these companies with a more seamless, end-to-end workflow.
The partnership includes the introduction of a Desktop Metal Build Processor to support metal Binder Jetting technology for the company’s Shop System and Production System technologies. Materialise Build Processors are widely used in industrial printing, translating 3D designs into machine-specific build files for a variety of machines. As part of the announcement, Materialise has also introduced sintering support generation for metal Binder Jetting as part of Magics’ SG+ module and metal Binder Jetting enhanced 3D nesting. This integrated solution, compatible with Materialise’s software suite, will help to create a better-connected workflow and improve productivity for metal Binder Jetting.
“Our partnership with
“From the start,
The Shop System is designed to bring metal additive manufacturing to machine and job shops with an affordable, turnkey solution that achieves exceptional surface finish parts with rich feature detail at speeds up to 10 times those of legacy powder bed fusion additive manufacturing technologies. Created by leading inventors of binder jetting and single-pass inkjet technology, the Production System is designed to be the fastest way to 3D print metal parts at scale. The system is an industrial manufacturing solution designed to achieve speeds up to 100 times those of legacy powder bed fusion additive manufacturing technologies, enabling production quantities of up to millions of parts per year at costs competitive with conventional mass production techniques.
Advancing Serial Additive Manufacturing
Successfully scaling additive manufacturing operations confronts manufacturers with increasingly diverse, complex and distributed environments. Optimizing production processes requires the possibility to fine-tune the various build parameters. By monitoring and analysing build data, manufacturers gain better insight into the production process and are able to make better informed decision about production planning. With the introduction of its Machine Connectivity Pack, as part of Materialise Streamics 8.2, Materialise is paving the way towards a more open market model by offering users actionable insights into their operations, allowing them to unlock the full potential of the technology.
“We believe access to build data is crucial to advance our industry and usher in a new era of industrial scale additive manufacturing”, says
Materialise incorporates three decades of 3D printing experience into a range of software solutions and 3D printing services, which together form the backbone of the 3D printing industry.
