What is Binder Jetting
Binder jetting is one of seven Additive Manufacturing techniques in which a binding liquid is selectively deposited to join powder material together to form a 3D part. Among the additive manufacturing technologies exist today, binder jetting is unique because it does not employ heat during the process like others to fuse the material together.
How Binder jetting works
- Powder material is spread over the build platform using a roller.
- The print head deposits the binder adhesive on top of the powder where required.
- The build platform is lowered by the model’s layer thickness.
- Another layer of powder is spread over the previous layer. The object is formed where the powder is bound to the liquid.
- Unbound powder remains in position surrounding the object.
- The process is repeated until the entire object has been made.
