Binder jetting

Standard Particle Size Distribution
5 25 μm

Binder Jetting is a 3D printing technology that uses a binder to selectively bond layers of powder material to create a part. The process is repeated layer by layer until the part is complete. 

In Binder Jetting, a thin layer of powder material is spread on a build platform. The print head then selectively applies a binder to the powder layer according to the desired shape of the part. Once a layer is completed, the platform is lowered, and the process is repeated with a new layer of powder until the part is complete. 


Binder jetting is used in a variety of industries, including aerospace, automotive, medical, and jewelry. It is particularly useful in applications that require high accuracy and detail, such as producing customized medical implants or intricate metal parts for aerospace applications. Binder jetting can also be used to create molds and patterns for investment casting.

In summary, binder jetting is an efficient and cost-effective 3D printing technology that offers high accuracy and material flexibility. Its ability to produce parts quickly and with intricate geometries make it a valuable tool in a wide range of industries.
