Metal additive manufacturing has evolved tremendously since the early days of laser powder bed fusion in the 1990s. And we don’t even have to look that far back to see game-changing innovations in the segment: this past year alone has signaled that a new era in metal AM is here thanks largely to the emergence of metal binder jetting systems and advances in industrialization.
In this eBook, we take a close look at the blossoming metal binder jetting subsegment, taking stock of acquisitions and mergers that are influencing the shape of the industry as well as the new technologies that are coming out. After an in-depth analysis by 3dpbm founder and industry expert Davide Sher, we zoom in on HP’s brand new Metal Jet S100 binder jetting system, which promises large-batch production for the automotive and consumer industries, among others. We have also put together a comprehensive overview of the five leading metal binder systems on the market, looking at each of their capabilities and potential.
We are also very excited to feature a close-up look at Theta Technologies’ new non-destructive testing system, the RD1-TT, which promises accurate pass/fail inspections of metal 3D printed parts in just seconds. We also focus on the largest of the large-format metal AM technologies: Relativity Space’s Stargate 3D printer (4th generation), which is now in operation at the company’s one-million-square-foot facility in Long Beach. Finally, get an exclusive look at our recent visit to GE Aerospace’s Additive Technology Center (ATC) in Cincinnati, Ohio. You don’t want to miss it!
