  • Patent number: 10688718
    Abstract: The present invention relates to the technical field of 3D printing, especially in the form of the binder jetting method, in which particulate material in a powder bed is bonded by means of a printed adhesive to form a three-dimensional object. The particulate materials may be inorganic materials, for example sand or a metal powder, or particulate polymeric materials, for example polymethacrylates or polyamides. For this purpose, polymethacrylates may take the form, for example, of suspension polymers, called bead polymers. The present invention relates to the use of porous particles in the binder jetting process, in particular of porous suspension polymers. These powders for 3-D printing differ from the prior art in that the porosity results in a faster and better absorption of the printed binder by the powder particles. A great advantage of this procedure is additionally that a product with less warpage is formed and that the end product has a better surface appearance.

  • Publication number: 20130175371
    Abstract: A method for separating a particle mixture into a first and second fraction, the first fraction of particles having an electrical conductivity greater than the particles of the second fraction, by a) ionizing air to have the same polarity with a corona electrode; b) mixing the ionized air with a fluidized particle mixture containing two particle fractions with different electrical conductivities, to obtain a fluidized particle mixture ionized to have the same polarity; d) precipitating particles of the second fraction from the particle mixture on a collection electrode moving relative to the particle mixture, where the collection electrode is grounded or has an opposite charge to the corona electrode; e) removing particles adhered to the collection electrode as the second fraction; and f) obtaining the first fraction from particles of the particle mixture which do not adhere to the collection electrode.
