For aircraft components, weight reduction is its eternal theme. Binder jetting 3D printing can optimize the structure of complex parts, making the components lighter and bringing immense potential for cost optimization and fuel conservation, environmental protection.
For printing high-strength, high-temperature resistance alloys with complex shape and lightweight design, such as 718 alloy, titanium alloy, and even ceramics, binder jetting 3D printing can be used for direct low-cost mass manufacturing. However, binder jetting 3D printing is not recommended for the part with internal thin walls and small features, because it is not easy to remove the powder. The others can be directly produced with this technology.
