The evolving story of metal Binder Jetting: The pain and the promise

Binder Jetting – at once the new kid on the block yet one of the industry’s earliest processes – holds the promise of taking metal Additive Manufacturing into the territory of true high-volume production. Yet progress towards this goal appears to be struggling, with machine sales lower than many hoped and two new ‘big players’ appearing to be holding back on full commercialisation.

In this report, Joseph Kowen considers the development of this industry to date, the obstacles facing its growth, and, of course, the recent announcement of two of Binder Jetting’s biggest rivals coming together in the most unexpected acquisition.

Jingye Lide: The story of an ambitious journey to become the world’s largest MIM-grade metal powder manufacturer

The dramatic growth of China’s Metal Injection Moulding industry over the past decade has not only seen MIM producers thrive, but it has driven major investments in metal powder production capabilities.

One of the biggest success stories is that of Jingye Lide Additive Manufacturing Co., Ltd., a company whose production has grown from 50 tons of atomised powder in 2009 to 4,000 tons in 2020. It is planning to increase capacity to 40,000 in the near future. Dr Chiou Yau Hung (Dr Q) reports on a recent visit to the company for PIM International.

How build parameters influence the tensile strength of 316L parts produced by Fused Filament Fabrication

In this article, Dr Samuel von Karsa-Wilberforce, Emery Oleochemicals, Germany, and co-authors report on the tensile strength of sintered 316L specimens produced via Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF), a Material Extrusion (MEX)-based Additive Manufacturing process.

The parameters studied include printing nozzle temperature, flow percent or extrusion multiplier and nozzle diameter of print head. The 316L feedstock filaments are based on Emery Oleochemicals’ evolutionary binder system, which has been used in MIM for more than thirty years. The partner in the study for debinding, sintering and mechanical testing is CMG Technologies Ltd, UK.
