voxeljet, the leading manufacturer of 3D printing systems for industrial applications, specialized on Powder-Binder-Jetting of plastic and sand, has announced the release of its High Speed Sintering (HSS) process for November 2017. The process is licensed to voxeljet from Evonik and Loughborough University. Combined with voxeljet’s binder-jetting expertise, the high speed sintering process has been further developed into a productive and precise technology.
The new HSS process enables printing of parts with properties and quality similar to Selective Laser Sintering, Multi Jet Fusion or injection molding. Additional application examples for HSS parts include interior design parts of cars and designs of product packaging.
The basis for HSS is the same as voxeljet’s core technology, binder jetting. This new process involves depositing a fine layer of polymeric powder, e.g. PA12 or TPU.
The High-Speed Sintering process will be officially released in November at the Formnext fair in Frankfurt, Germany, taking place in November 14th‑18th 2017.
