Experimental Study on Warping Height of PA12/HDPE Specimen by Selective Laser Sintering
The dimensional accuracy and mechanics properties of parts made by Selective Laser Sintering depend greatly on the sintering process parameters. The influence of process parameters on warping weight of parts sintered by blends of polyamide (PA12) and high density polyethylene (HDPE) was studied. The relationship between the process parameters and the warping height was presented. The surface morphology of the part and uniformity of powder mixed were analyzed by SEM. The optimum parameters of minimum warping height were obtained: preheat temperature 110°C, scan speed 300mm/s, laser power 21W, thickness of single layer 0.2mm.
