Binder Jetting 3D Printing Service Process Overview

Binder jetting involves building the layers of a part by selectively applying an adhesive to a powder bed. The powder bed then descends one layer in height, followed by a roll of fresh powder evenly spread on a new layer over the part. After the shape of the part is printed, the part (now in the green state) will typically undergo some sort of post-processing to make it stronger, commonly baked in a kiln. The metal, gypsum, or ceramic powder binds to itself to form a superior integral bond.

Certain printers—color jet printers—can apply the colored adhesive. This provides the opportunity to print in full color, suiting visual models and colorful, nonfunctional parts with complex geometries.

Advantages
Full-Color Prints. CJP jetting machines can print in the full-color spectrum.
Relatively Affordable. A cost-effective technology for gypsum or metal prints.
Material Conservation. Powder can be reused for later prints.
Limitations
Multiple Steps. Jetting and post-processing can extend the time needed to create the design.
Simple Geometry. A challenging post-process makes small features and complex designs more difficult to achieve than with other powder bed processes.
Low Durability in Green State. Without a post-processing step, parts are highly anisotropic and typically fragile in the Z direction. Solutions include dipping it in acrylate for gypsum parts or fully sintering for metal parts.
