Webinar: Design for Metal Binder Jet: A Way to Create a Winning Business Case
Additive manufacturing has long been recognized as a disruptive approach to maximizing design freedom and improving part performance. Metal additive has been evolving to become an alternative to traditional manufacturing methods. Meanwhile, metal binder jetting has increased the build rate by orders of magnitude, making it a viable replacement now for traditional manufacturing, in particular castings. The combination of Binder Jet’s technology advancements and innovative designs is helping to facilitate the leap to large-scale production.
Join this webinar and learn how designing a part for Binder Jet can build a winning business case and can lead to an effective way to produce parts for serial production.
Topics covered will include:
• Examples of Binder Jet parts
• Designing for the process
• Advantages over casting
• Material properties
• Total part cost review
