Additive Manufacturing using Multi-Material 3D Powder Printing Technology

Grid Logic's Multi-Material Printhead

Binder-Free 3D Printing

No binders are ever needed to fabricate parts. 3D printed support powder maintains the shape of the part during printing and bulk processing.

Multi-Material 3D Printing of Powders

Three or more powders are printed on a layer-by-layer basis to form a 3-dimensional powdered structure.

Bulk Processing

Parts are fabricated using conventional powder metallurgy and ceramic processing methods.

Benefits include: 

  • Minimizes waste of high cost metal and ceramic powders

  • No residual stress in as-printed parts

  • No contamination from binders

  • Leverages conventional powder consolidation methods to manufacture complex parts
