The complexity of certain parts is restricted by traditional manufacturing processes. For sound absorption equipment, it is difficult to fit all required features in a compact footprint. By using binder jetting 3D printing, small parts can be produced with fine features to create the desired sound absorption effects. Variable wall thickness, pitch and controlled porosity are easily achieved. Fine resolution binder jetting technology can increase the potential sound absorption of these parts. This presentation will examine the application of binder jetting 3D printing to sound absorption parts.
