Powder bed fusion is one of the most mature metal additive systems and as such, this technology offers the advantage of decades of industry experience. Whether you are designing a new component and need to iterate on designs rapidly or are looking for a more efficient process to manufacture advanced components, PBF can meet your needs
Powder bed fusion offers a wide range of advantages, some of which are listed below. Reduced material waste – Building up the part layer by layer eliminates most of the waste associated with subtractive manufacturing technologies. After the part is complete, any excess powder is collected and recycled.
PBF techniques are often considered slow when compared to other technologies. However, when it comes to complex parts with intricate internal geometry, no other technology can compare.
