Selective Absorption Fusion (SAF)

Selective Absorption Fusion or SAF technology empowers a powder-based additive manufacturing process that employs industrial-grade technology to achieve higher levels of production of end-use parts. SAF technology uses an infrared-sensitive HAF High Absorbing Fluid to fuse particles of polymer powder together in discreet layers to build parts. It uses Big Wave™ powder management, a proprietary technology that includes powder distribution across a bed, where industrial-grade piezoelectric print heads jet the fluid in prescribed areas to create each layer of the part. This is followed by exposure to infrared energy, which causes the areas with HAF to melt and fuse together. The sequence is repeated until the parts are completed.

Benefits of SAF:
• Industrial piezoelectric print heads and innovative powder management designed for durability and high uptime.
• One-pass print-and fuse, few consumable replacements for minimal downtime and high nesting densities to meet production demands
• Real-time powder heating, unique thermal management and broad powder range for a wide spectrum of part properties.
