Ordered Powder Lithography

Grid Logic's Selective Powder Deposition systems for Additive Manufacturing deposit multiple powders on a layer-by-layer basis to form a 3D ordered powder structure.

 

Benefits Include:

  • No binder needed to fabricate parts

  • Efficient use of high cost powders

  • Scalable to large build volumes

  • Open-air operation

Grid Logic's OPL printer is capable of printing multiple powders with precise geometries in three dimensions.

 

The GL-250 system is equipped with a 3-powder printhead and housed in an open-air enclosure. 

Materials

Grid Logic has developed a number of materials systems specific to the OPL process. In particular:

  • Infiltrated metal parts can be 3D printed and processed in a single heat treatment

  • Casting molds can be 3D printed and processed in an open-air furnace using conventional materials

Advanced R&D

Grid Logic's advanced R&D program is developing OPL toolpath generation algorithms to optimize the use of powder in a 3D print and minimize print time.

 

Autonomous, large-scale, OPL-based part fabrication systems are being developed for commercial and military use.
