Comparative study on the printing of the same polymer

Comparative study on the printing of the same polymer, here Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene, called ABS, with different 3D printers (filaments and granules)   Are the printed parts comparable to each other? Does the colour have an impact on the quality of the part? Is the material purchased equivalent whether it is in the form of…

What is PIM Like additive manufacturing?

It is the synergy of 2 technologies : Additive manufacturing and powder metallurgy. The term “PIM-like” corresponds to the fact that the printing technology seems to the PIM technology “Powder Injection Molding». In PIM, the shaping phase is made by injection, the shaping is done by printing for the PIM like technology. The raw material…

Feedstock development for the PIM-Like process

As part of the PEPS project, we attended the annual powder metallurgy congress (EPMA 2020) of the 5th, 6th and 7th of octobre and it was a virtual congress. In this congress different topics were discussed, in particular the PIM-Like process and the development of feedstocks (Metal powder + Polymer binder). Indeed, the development of…

Comparative study for a given part (turbine) in stainless steel printed with different PIM-like processes available on the market (roughness, material health, hardness, etc…)

Within the framework of the PEPS project, we wanted to compare different additive manufacturing technologies known as “PIM like” available on the market to print metal turbines. The technologies chosen for this comparative study are the SLM technology (Powder Bed with Laser Beam), the Binder Jetting technology (Powder Bed with polyme’s droplets), the FFF technology…
