Xaar’s 3D Centre in Nottingham Opens for Business with HSS 3D Printing

High Speed Sintering is a revolutionary Additive Manufacturing/3D Printing technology which uses inkjet printheads and infrared heaters to manufacture products layer by layer from polymer powder materials at much higher speeds and lower costs than other 3D Printing processes. This technology is therefore of interest to companies looking to use 3D Printing in volume manufacturing.Guests at the official opening event were given a tour of the facilities which included High Speed Sintering machines and associated peripheral equipment for pre-processing, post-processing and quality control/inspection.  The official opening was attended by over 30 specially invited guests which included: ABB, BAE Systems and Jaguar Land Rover.

“There is no doubt that High Speed Sintering technology can transform 3D Printing from a low volume prototyping solution to a mainstream manufacturing process,” says Professor Neil Hopkinson, the original inventor of the transformational High Speed Sintering technology who heads up Xaar’s 3D division. “The step change to high volume manufacturing will be most efficiently achieved through partnerships with committed stakeholders across the supply chain.  Our new 3D Centre in Nottingham is the ideal location for such partnerships to flourish.”
Professor Neil Hopkinson is considered the inventor of HSS technology for high speed 3D printing of plastics. The technology, which was first publicly revealed in 2014, is not entirely different from HP’s multijet fusion, and can be considered part of a new generation of “planar” 3D printing process which accelerate additive manufacturing by curing or sintering an entire layer in a single pass. Like multijet fusion, HSS technology uses heat from infrared radiation as the source of energy instead of laser.
