Binder jetting is an inkjet-based additive manufacturing process that net-shapes a low-density powder preform for infiltration with a secondary material to form a fully dense metal hybrid. Binder jetting holds unique promise among metal additive manufacturing technologies due to its high throughput, low cost, and the isotropic properties of the final printed parts. Currently however, there exists a limited selection of fully dense materials developed for the binder jet process. This work explores existing industrial metal hybrids that can be readily net-shaped with binder jetting as well as presents a roadmap for developing new metal hybrid combinations. A new metal hybrid system developed for binder jetting will be presented along with mechanical property data.
