Infinity meets Reality

Powder Bed Fusion

Evonik had already delivered the first polyamide 12 powder material for Powder Bed Fusion in 1996 setting new quality standards that currently apply to 3D printing of polymer materials.

A powder is deposited layer by layer and fused at the places where a component is to be created. Depending on the method in question, this is either done by a laser (LS) or an infrared light (Multi Jet Fusion™/MJF, High Speed Sintering/HSS). In the second variant, an inkjet printer prints a mostly black marking on the places that are to be fused. The black areas heat up faster than the unmarked areas. The finished component is then taken from the powder bed.

HIGH SPEED SINTERING

Evonik had already delivered the first powder material for the additive manufacturing market in 1996, thus setting standards that currently apply to 3D printing of plastic materials.

MULTI JET FUSION

Evonik participates in HP Inc.’s Open Platform program and introduce new customized powder materials to the market for HP Multi Jet Fusion™ technology. 

SELECTIVE LASER SINTERING

Evonik had already delivered the first powder material for the additive manufacturing market - SLS technology - in 1996, thus setting standards that currently apply to 3D printing of plastic materials.
