TIME TO MAKE POWDER BED FUSION multi-material !
We enable Multi-Material 3D printing
Powder bed fusion printing processes (like SLS or SLM) were invented more than 25 years ago as single material printing techniques. Multimaterial has always been wishful thinking and we are about to change that.
To achieve multimaterial printing we had to invent and build an alternative recoating technology. Our recoater replaces traditional blade or roller recoaters. The Aerosint recoater relies on the precise deposition of powder voxels.
With our recoater 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.
Multi-material 3D printing will enable parts optimization and functionalization like no other manufacturing technology will ever be capable of!

for powder bed fusion printing
Aerosint invented a unique selective powder recoating technology.
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.
Multimaterial 3D printing can be achieved by successively sintering the different powders that compose each layer.
The benefits of Aerosint’s recoater
Fast multimaterial powder recoating.
Recoater works with a wide range of polymers, metals and ceramics powders.
High resolution and 3-dimensional control over powder voxel placement in powder bed.
ON/OFF CONTACTLESS RECOATING
Alternative recoating method to hard, soft or roller coaters. Precise control over material quantity deposited.
