Reinventing powder based 3D printing as a multi-material process
Our MISSION is to enable TRUE Multi-Material 3D printing
True multi-material printing means that it becomes possible for a user to define voxel by voxel the material being printed in his part. The material can be a plastic, a metal or a ceramic.
A true multi-material 3D printing technology will basically make it possible to print anything that would have needed assembly today.
True multi-material 3D printing will enable parts optimization and functionalization like no other manufacturing technology will ever be capable of!

MULTI-POWDER DISPENSING TECHNOLOGY
Aerosint invented a unique selective powder dispensing technology. The dispenser is composed of multiple patterning drums (one per powder type).
The Aerosint patterning drums selectively deposit fine powder voxels line by line. The result is a powder layer composed of more than one powder ready for sintering.
True multimaterial 3D printing can be achieved by successively sintering the different powders that compose each layer.
The benefits of the Aerosint powder dispenser
Line by line deposition enables fast patterning (2 seconds / layer).
Dispenser works with virtually any type of 3D printing powder: polymers, metals, ceramics, organic …
The drums can easily be scaled-up for larger patterning desires.
The dispenser can withstand the high temperatures of the printing chamber (up to 400°C).
