 Project objective

Powder bed 3D printing was invented over 30 years ago, has not changed since and is only able to print single material parts. Aerosint intends to change that. Aerosint invented a 3D printing technology capable of printing truly multi-material parts with the ultimate goal to be able to combine metals, polymers and ceramics. This capability paves the way to unique parts optimization and functionalization and will bring 3D printing in a new era. Aerosint is the first multi-material powder bed 3D printing process enabling unique polymer and metal combinations. Our patent-pending technology can print parts that are made of different materials by melting powder layers composed of more than one powder. To achieve that, the Aerosint patterning drums selectively deposit fine powder voxels line by line. The result are powder layers composed of more than one material and ready for sintering. What best illustrates Aerosint unique approach to multi-material. Aerosint’s multi-powder dispenser achieves material change between and within layers. No other existing technology is today capable of doing this. We will have two streams of revenue upon market entry: royalty incomes from licensing our technology to 3D machine manufacturers. To help us with revenues faster and to invest in further improvements, we are also considering retrofitting old machines. Considering the sales of 7,000 SLS units worldwide at an average price of €200,000 (current price of SLS printer), our serviceable obtainable market would be €98M (7% of the total sales price). There is no competition in terms of technology but there are substitutes such as printers without Aerosint technology. The Phase 1 funding will help us determine the best way to progress and Phase 2 to upgrade the technology. We will benefit the EU helping advanced manufacturing techniques with the new 3D printing technology, creating more jobs in manufacturing and reducing energy consumption and waste in the process.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "AEROSINT" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email ( and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
