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.
No binder needed to fabricate parts
Efficient use of high cost powders
Scalable to large build volumes
OPL 3D Printer
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.
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
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.
