Compared to customary metal fabrication techniques like casting and the newer MIM technique that requires molds, binder jetting is more flexible and less expensive in small volumes and faster from design to finished parts. Binder jet metal AM parts are produced fully dense and stress-relieved, enabling use of the part immediately after sintering. Binder jetting provides mass customization, volume production, and cost-competitiveness simultaneously.
