Paper Title:
High-Temperature Infiltration of Non-Metallic Articles Produced via Selective Laser Sintering
  Abstract

There are several commercial processes for producing metallic parts by selective laser sintering (SLS) followed by infiltration of a molten metal at 700-900C. These parts are used in rapid manufacturing and rapid tooling applications. The present work centers around research to produce non-metallic parts infiltrated with materials at temperatures exceeding 1300C. Specific systems include siliconized silicon carbide. Of primary concern are: process control during the high-temperature infiltration; the binder system which must bind powder together during SLS, provide structural strength continuously from room temperature to the infiltration temperature, and react favorably with the infiltrant. This research was funded by State of Texas Technology Development and Transfer Grant Number 003658.
