Selective powder deposition can be utilized to furnace sinter intricate glass objects by using alumina beads as a non-fusible support powder.
At Aerosint we’ve developed the Selective Powder Deposition (SPD), a technology that allows the user to make 2D patterns with multiple powders in any shape or form they desire. Our goal is to empower you with this technology to make materials and parts like none you’ve seen before. One way to achieve this is via direct pressure assisted sintering on multi-material powder constructs.
This is (by far) the first question people ask about the Aerosint process. And rightfully… When we print with two metal powders simultaneously, the unfused powder in the process inevitably ends-up being a mix of the two metal powders. Can the excess powder be recycled? Often not, or at least not easily and not fully.
