The partnership is alleged to be “paving the way in which for utilizing 3D printing for industrial manufacturing of huge last elements” utilizing the chemical firm’s expertise of polymer additive manufacturing powders and binders to type the idea of those new materials methods.
“Voxeljet is without doubt one of the main producers of large-scale high-speed printers for mould-making,” stated Prof. Stefan Buchholz, govt director of Evonik Creavis GmbH. “We have now made it our aim to work with Voxeljet to develop new powder-binder methods that may for the primary time allow this technique for use to fabricate polymer elements for industrial use.”
The concentrate on binder jetting, which includes layering powder bonded by a binding agent and is mostly utilized in mould-making and sand core manufacture, goals to open up materials alternatives for producing industrial last elements with better mechanical properties.
“In Evonik we now have discovered an impressive collaboration accomplice that may present us with tailor-made materials methods for our environment friendly printing know-how. With this analysis collaboration, we purpose to fulfil our aspirations of coming into into the protected and strong additive manufacturing of steady polymer last elements in sequence manufacturing,” stated Dr. Ingo Ederer, CEO of Voxeljet.
Evonik will probably be delivering insights on this analysis at Formnext in Frankfurt on 19-22 November on sales space 12.1, C71.
