Debinding process


Recommended Posts

Posted · Debinding process

I am reading about metal printing lately and i feel i do not understand fully the so called "debinding" process. I understand it is the process of separating the polymer from the metal powder once the part is printed. Then sintering is aplied to the remaining part.

But, debinding is a chemical process or is it some sort of heating process as well?


By the way, if anyone reading speechs Spanish, which is the proper word for debinding and sintering in our language? I am trying to find outsourcing services in Spain and have found none, probably because i do not use the right words.

    The companies Materialise, Melotte, and Protolabs do metal 3D-printing. Maybe you can find the info you are looking for at their websites? Including guidelines for dimensioning? I think the models shrink a bit, but I have no experience and knowledge about this myself.
