AFS Materials For Sand 3d Printing Technology

AFS sand 3d printing technology, also known as Binder Jetting, is an advanced additive manufacturing technique used for creating intricate sand molds and cores employed in metal casting processes. This technology utilizes a high-resolution inkjet printhead to selectively deposit a liquid binding agent onto layers of sand particles, solidifying them and bonding them together. The process is repeated layer by layer until the desired shape is formed. This innovative approach offers numerous advantages, including the ability to produce complex geometries, reduce lead times, optimize part designs, and minimize material waste. 3DP Sand (Binder Jetting) technology revolutionizes the foundry industry by enabling faster and more cost-effective production of metal components.
