Additive Manufacturing Processes
Material Jetting of Polymers
Material jetting (MJ) is a classification of additive manufacturing processes that involves the selective jetting and subsequent solidification of liquid droplets onto a substrate in a layerwise manner. This article focuses solely on MJ of polymers, providing a process overview and describing the functional characteristics that distinguish it from other AM technologies. It provides information on the properties and design considerations of both build and support materials. Process-related effects on final part properties and overall quality, as well as corresponding design considerations are also covered. The article also discusses the applications and future scope of polymer MJ systems.
