    Metal 3D printing adhesive spraying process

    Common processes: MJF (multi jet fusion), npj (nano particle jet) Description: this technique uses inkjet to selectively drop an adhesive onto a flat powder bed. The area receiving the droplets will be solidified and the remaining powder will remain loose. Perform the above steps layer by layer until the entire object is generated. This process can be used to treat metals, sand, ceramics and other materials. Since the metal adhesive sprayer operates at room temperature, it will not warp and does not need support. Therefore, the adhesive ejector can be much larger than the powder bed fusion machine, and can…
