Abstract

High Speed Sintering is a polymer Additive Manufacturing process, which builds parts by the use of inkjet printing and infrared lamp technology, as opposed to lasers and optics used in Laser Sintering. For High Speed Sintering to be a viable method to build fast moving consumer goods the ability to use different inks is critical. This research investigated the effects of using two separate inks in the High Speed Sintering process. This work shows it is possible to use inks from different suppliers, which opens up a wider supply chain.
