Application oriented design and development of laser sintering materials – Presented by Rob Kleijnen, inspire AG

Application oriented design and development of laser sintering materials – Presented by Rob Kleijnen, inspire AG at the 3D Printing Materials Conference, on April 17, 2018, at Brightlands Chemelot Campus, Geleen, The Netherlands.

Laser sintering (LS) is a widely adopted additive manufacturing technology for the production of small-to-medium sized series of end-use parts. When developing new materials for this process, the most value can be created if the design freedom that additive manufacturing offers is taken into account. It is not sufficient to merely develop a material that can be processed well on a laser sintering machine. Only when material properties are tuned specifically with certain applications already in mind, a synergy between part functionality and material properties can be achieved.

About Rob Kleijnen
After his graduation from TU Eindhoven as chemical engineer, with specialization in polymers and composites, Rob Kleijnen started as scientific assistant at inspire AG in 2014. In this capacity, he has worked with various partners from industry on the development of new materials for SLS. Under the supervision of Prof. Konrad Wegener at the ETH Zürich, Rob is also working on a PhD thesis with the same topic.
