Listemann adds AM debinding and sintering line from Xerion

July 21, 2021

German equipment manufacturer Xerion Berlin Laboratories has announced that it is partnering with Listemann Technology AG, Bendern, Lichtenstein, a company with extensive Metal Injection Moulding (MIM) expertise, to enable Listemann to further develop its sinter-based metal Additive Manufacturing processes.

The partnership will, it is stated, enable Listemann to explore the limits of its existing materials portfolio and exploit the performance capabilities of new materials.

Listemann has placed an order with Xerion to supply its production system for sinter-based metal Additive Manufacturing. The system purchased comprises a solvent debinding system and a combined debinding/sintering furnace, the XVAC. With these additions, the company will be able to process small and medium series of high-quality additively manufactured components.

Xerion’s recently developed series of systems for solvent debinding of AM components allows a fully automated process, including monitoring of all relevant parameters. A special feature is that there is no explosion protection zone requirement around the machine and, therefore, no special measures have to be taken at the installation site.

The XVAC series sintering furnace can be used to process components in both high vacuum and inert gas atmospheres, including 100% hydrogen. The design, with a movable floor, is used for ergonomic loading and unloading.
