Metalfuse offers a complete solution, consisting of an indirect metal 3D printing process, paired with a special edition of ideaMaker compatible with MIM equipment. With this solution, Metalfuse’s advantages include low overhead costs and the ability to perform batch production.  Metalfuse saves more energy and is more environmentally friendly when compared to processes such as CNC and SLM (Selective Laser Melting).

 

 

 

 

New Technology,A Leap in Efficiency

MetalFuse utilizes the Catalytic Debinding process, which leads to a reduction in total processing time of 60%, an increase in final part density up to 97%, and an improvement in yield strength of 52% when compared to competitors.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

High-End Metal Filament by BASF

By using BASF Forward AM’s metal filaments Ultrafuse 316L and Ultrafuse 17-4 PH, Metalfuse is capable of better printing repeatability and a greater yield rate.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Adopting a Time-Tested Process

The catalytic debinding furnace (D200-E) and the sintering furnace (S200-C) are used to post-process the “Green Parts”, in a way similar to the process developed based on BASF’s know how coming from Metal Injection Molding (MIM).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Specialized Slicing Software

A special edition of ideaMaker offers templates optimized for this kind of printing, while taking into account the sintering and debinding process that can be paired with Metalfuse. This special edition ideaMaker also features a simpler slicing process.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Touchscreen

A visual interface that needs only one click to select a template, and keeps stored work history available for review.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Environmentally Friendly

Filters that clean exhaust gas, bringing them to safe levels and reducing pollution.

Raise3D Industrial 17-4 PH

Alloy 17-4PH (UNS S17400), Type 630, is a chromium-nickel-copper precipitation-hardening martensitic stainless steel with an addition of niobium. 17-4PH combines high strength and hardness with good corrosion resistance.

Raise3D Industrial 316L

Alloy 316/316L (UNS S31600/S31603) is a chromium-nickel-molybdenum austenitic stainless steel developed to provide improved corrosion resistance to Alloy 304/304L in moderately corrosive environments.
