Webinar: The Technical Drivers Behind Designing for Binder Jet and How the Technology Compares to Casting
Join this webinar to learn about the new innovations in Binder Jet technology and get an overview of design considerations and the technical drivers behind them. The session will explore Binder Jet’s advantages and why it is suited to displace castings.
Over the past several years, many industries have embraced the design freedoms and production capabilities of additive manufacturing. Even though AM has realized increasing acceptance as an alternative to traditional manufacturing, it has not been seen as an economical replacement for castings. However, as additive technology advances, it is becoming a viable, cost-effective method for large-scale production.
Binder Jet is one emerging additive technology that can have a tremendous impact on traditional supply chains and is an efficient method for producing innovative components quickly and at scale.
