LEAP™, Layered Encased Additive Process (technology pat. pend.)
The LEAP technology combines an injection molding technology and an additive technology to greatly simplify the process of creating a 3d body with possibility for sintering. The body is built layer by layer where a mold is created and filled in parallel.
CODE™, Continuous Debind (technology pat. pend.)
The invention behind continuous debind makes it possible to eliminate the cumbersome and sometimes toxic step of removing the binder from the printed object in a metal printing process. This saves time and reduces complexity in the process.
The LEAP™ technology enables resolution down to 35 microns layers.
The LEAP™ technology is compatible with any sinterable powder. We are printing in materials such as copper alloys, iron alloys and steel, and we are adding other high performance metals and also ceramics.
Calculation is total cost for printing 1 part with weight 50 grams in a prototyping use case. We have used a 5 year write off for the cost of the system and the users labour cost is set at 60 USD/h.
We estimate 200 work days/year efficient usage of the systems.
