Sintertek, based in Istanbul, Turkey, has launched its latest metal Binder Jetting (BJT) Additive Manufacturing machine: the Sinterjet M60. With a build volume of 160 x 60 x 60 mm, and a print resolution of 1200 x 1200 dpi, the compact machine is said to enable the production of complex metal parts at a fraction of the cost of its competitors.

Measuring 550 x 350 x 450 mm, the Sinterjet M60 is small enough to fit on a table top and requires no dedicated electrical connections or gas supplies to operate. Capable of working with a wide selection of materials, powders and binders, the BJT machine is said to be well suited to small workshops, R&D laboratories and academic institutes.

To enable minimal effort in handling powder, the Sinterjet M60 has a removable build box. This machine reportedly enables a new build – or changing of material at the end of a build – to be completed in seconds, increasing production throughput and reducing time to market.

Once the build process is complete, the additively manufactured parts within the powder will be removed from the machine with the build box and placed inside a curing oven. This will activate the binder and harden the part, readying it to be removed from the powder bed. From there, the cleaned parts are placed inside a sintering furnace to produce fully dense metal parts.

Sintertek has also developed an affordable sintering furnace to partner with the Sinterjet M60. This is expected to be available in 2023.
