The 3D binder systems from ASK Chemicals combine the specific requirements of 3D sand printing with the high-performance profile of ASK Chemicals binder technology. In 3D sand printing using the binder jetting process, cores and molds are created without tools from a digital 3D data model by applying the molding material, e.g. sand, in layers. The liquid binder component is applied point by point by the print head in layers on the surface to be rendered to generate the geometry specified by CAD.
The ASK Chemicals 3D binder portfolio offers organic and inorganic solutions for various complex applications for this additive production process.
In our interview, Ulrich Grunewald, Managing Director of the Bochum-based family company Grunewald GmbH & Co.KG, explains why the Grunewald foundry chose 3D printing technology, what options this process already offers, and what challenges still need to be overcome. He openly explains the pros and cons of the new production method, but above all, he emphasizes the unique selling point this innovative process technology provides.
