Fraunhofer IFAM Dresden uses 3D screen printing, a modified screen printing process based on a powder-binder mixture which is printed layer-by-layer to the desired shape followed by debinding and a conventional sintering step. It is a mass-printing technique that allows the production of metallic and ceramic parts in high numbers. 

The industrialization of this process requires the knowledge of the achievable tolerances for their production with low error rates. Therefore, a machine capability study has been performed to study the geometrical properties of printed metallic parts. The authors like to present first results of this research and give an insight into 3D screen printing.
