USING ADAPTIVE SLICING METHOD AND VARIABLE BINDER AMOUNT ALGORITHM IN BINDER JETTING
Binder jetting is one of the most important additive manufacturing methods because it is cost-effective, has no thermal stress problems, and has a wide range of different materials. Using binder jetting technology in the industry is becoming more common recently. However, it has disadvantages when compared to traditional manufacturing methods in terms of manufacturing speed. In this study, adaptive slicing was used to increase the manufacturing speed of binder jetting. The real use of adaptive slicing in binder jetting was applied for the first time in this study. In addition, a variable binder amount algorithm has been developed to use adaptive slicing efficiently. Quarter-spherical shaped samples were manufactured using variable binder amount algorithm and adaptive slicing method. Samples were sintered at 1250°C for 2 hours with 10 °C/min heating and cooling ramp. SEM analysis and surface roughness tests were done. According to the results obtained from the analyzes, similar surface quality is achieved by using 38% fewer layers than uniform slicing.
