Abstract

This research is to develop a novel material delivery device for a next generation additive manufacturing system which is capable of directly manufacturing objects by depositing several materials layer by layer. The successful deposition of multiple material layers by using this novel dry powder printing technique reveals its great potential as a means of incorporating multiple materials in the traditional additive manufacturing process since this technology is suitable for a wide range of materials and it has the capability to manufacture 2D layers composed of multiple materials. This paper will outline the basics of the dry powder printing technology and present and discuss selected experimental studies from our research.
