Development of Industrial SFF System Using a New Selective Dual-Laser Sintering Process
In order to develop more elaborate and speedy system for large objects than existing selective laser sintering (SLS), this study applies a new selective dual-laser sintering process. It contains a 3-axis dynamic focusing scanner system for scanning large area instead of the existing fθ lens. As sintering parameters, the sintering temperature, the laser beam power and the layer thickness have a great influence on sintering of the polymer and metal powder. This paper will address the development of a solid freeform fabrication (SFF) system employing the dual laser system. Experiments were performed to evaluate the effect of a scanning path and to fabricate the large-sized object.
