With the rise of additive manufacturing and 3D printing, the sintering of powder-based materials appears to be a very important process for tomorrow advanced manufacturing. In parallel, flash sintering and energy efficient processes have emerged and represent an interesting opening for an ultra-fast manufacturing with a significant energy saving. The flash and energy efficient approaches will be presented with a focus on the spark plasma sintering (SPS). In particular, the essential problem of complex shapes manufacturing using this technology will be highlighted. The Multiphysics simulation tool will be introduced to support the investigation of these advanced sintering based technologies. The productivity and energy efficiency of flash and energy efficient approaches will be compared to conventional approaches via the simulation tool.
