ECN will showcase Direct Multi Metal Printing through exceptional Powder Bed Fusion Processing

Friday November 3, 2017 15:53

A unique process and powder bed approach developed by ECN to make direct high quality materials without internal stress. We will showcase the LASERFLEX Conflux for Direct Multi Metal Printing through exceptional Powder Bed Fusion Processing at Formnext from 14-17 November in Frankfurt am Main, Germany.

This technique delivers significant improvement compared to conventional Powder Bed Fusion:

  • Low internal stress build-up during densification, resulting in low residual stress and improved resolution.

  • Homogenous microstructure, resulting in high quality material properties without annealing.

  • Safe and environmentally friendly operation, with precise powder handling.

  • Multi and / or functional graded material build-up in one build process.

The LASERFLEX Conflux upgrades the Powder Bed Fusion (PBF) process to provide higher material quality and finer features and enables handling of multiple materials and functional grading, while maintaining the advantages of a direct product generation process without additional sintering or annealing steps.

This technology offers new opportunities to high-tech sectors such as the automotive, aerospace or medical sector. Delivering multi metal (functional) printing with material qualities comparable to conventional processing techniques.

ECN will showcase  the LASERFLEX Conflux at Formnext from 14-17 November in Frankfurt an Main on the Admatec stand B80, Hall 3.1.
