Direct Part Manufacturing (DPM) for Nonstructural Components
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
From Paramount Industries significant experience with Selective Laser Sintering, Paramount Industries knows the material performance and mechanical properties of a given SLS material is correlated directly with many material as well as process parameters that must be optimized to achieve the required performance parameters of strength, modulus, porosity, dimensional accuracy, surface roughness, and the compliance of any post-processing that may improve mechanical properties, enhance surface finish, or provide protective coating. However the optimization and processing of existing HT materials for SLS presents a dual technical challenge the optimization of the material properties and the optimization of the SLS process. The proposed Paramount Industries innovation includes the use of two high performance proven HT resistant materials that have been previously screened for SLS. To demonstrate the feasibility of delivering a mission supportive solution and adapting advanced SLS HT materials and SLS systems technology and material modifications for the fabrication of nonstructural components that meet all the end-user specified requirements, Paramount Industries is relying on an integrated support team of experts, people that has been assisting Paramount Industries for the past 9 years on internal R&D.
