Reinventing 3D printing into a true multi-material process

Project description

3D printing of hybrid components made of metals and polymers is on the horizon

Additive manufacturing, or 3D printing, is often associated with inkjet printers. Powder bed fusion 3D printing technology relies on selective consolidation of powders into 3D objects using heat or pressure. Today, both metal and polymer powder particles can be joined, but not in the same piece, and there is a huge market for such components. The Belgian SME Aerosint is changing the rules of the game. The EU-funded Aerosint project is supporting the team in developing the business plan for its multi-material powder bed 3D printing process, which is the first to enable polymer and metal combinations.
