Investigations of the directional mechanical properties and reasons of fracture of mask sintered PA12-components
The Additive Manufacturing process enables a flexible production of components without specific molds or tools. So far this manufacturing process has mainly been used to create prototypes. However in the last few years, the manufacturing of products using this method has grown in popularity. This is why it is important to have accurate knowledge of their carrying capacity and mechanical properties. A new additive manufacturing technology, called Selective Mask Sintering, involves the geometry to be fused together by IR-Radiation through the given mask. This paper will discuss the achievable direction-dependent mechanical properties and breaking failure mechanisms.
The Journal of Plastics Technology is a peer reviewed internet periodical published under the auspices of the Scientific Alliance of Polymer Technology (WAK)
International Polymer Processing, the journal of the Polymer Processing Society, is a discussion forum for the world-wide community of engineers and scientists in the field of polymer processing.
The journal covers research and industrial application in the very specific areas of designing polymer products, processes, processing machinery and equipment.
The Journal of Plastics Technology is indexed in SCOPUS, the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature.
