Selective Absorption Fusion Technology
Stratasys SAF technology enables a powder-based additive manufacturing process to achieve a higher rate of end-use component quality using industrial-grade technology. SAF is the technology behind the forthcoming H SeriesTM Development Platform, which offers a wide range of print process control capabilities for reliable, continuous production at low component costs.
SAF technology fuses polymer powder particles together in discrete layers using an infrared-sensitive HAF (High Absorbing Fluid). It employs Big WaveTM powder control, a patented process that involves powder delivery through a bed and the use of industrial-grade Piezo-electric print heads to produce each layer of the part. After that, the areas of HAF are exposed to ultraviolet radiation, which allows them to melt and fuse together. The process is replicated before all of the pieces have been finished.
