Debinding and sintering service for BASF Ultrafuse metal filaments.

BASF, one of the largest and most prestigious multinationals in the chemical sector, has committed to additive manufacturing through the Forward-AM brand and its Ultrasint, Ultrafuse and Ultracure lines. It currently has an extensive catalogue of materials for the main 3D printing technologies, including its renowned metallic filaments.

One of the advantages of Ultrafuse metal filaments is that they can be complemented with BASF's debinding and sintering service. This service is provided by ELNIK, a leading manufacturer of debinding and sintering equipment, in cooperation with BASF.

The debinding and sintering service is valid for both Ultrafuse 316L and Ultrafuse 17-4PH. This service cannot be used with filaments from other manufacturers.

How it works

BASF's debinding and sintering service is voucher-based. Each voucher purchased entitles the processing of a maximum of 0,5 kg of parts and includes the cost of returning the processed parts (only within the European Union). The cost of sending the parts to BASF must be covered by the customer.

Each voucher can be used to send an unlimited number of pieces as long as they meet the following requirements:

  • The total weight of the pieces may not exceed 0,5 kg.
  • The maximum dimensions of each piece may not exceed 100 x 100 x 100 mm*.
  • Walls may not be thicker than 25 mm, as this would lead to insufficient debinding and a failed sintering process.
  • All parts must be made of the same material.

Debinding and sintering is always carried out on Tuesdays and every two weeks. Every Tuesday all pieces received before the previous Friday will be processed. All parts received thereafter will be processed in the next cycle, two weeks later.

The whole process takes 2-3 days, so the sintered parts will usually be sent back to the customer on the Friday of the week in which the treatment is carried out.

How to use the Voucher

BASF's D&S platform is very easy to use and, in a few simple steps, the user can book the service, track the order and even have a look at the steps and details of the D&S processes as they are carried out.

The process can be summarised in the following 5 steps:

  1. Log in to the D&S portal and create a free personal account (private or company).
  2. Purchase the BASF debinding & sintering voucher and enter the code on the D&S platform.
  3. Select the type of filament - 316L or 17-4 PH, and fill in the required information (quantity, weight, size, thickest wall, percentage of filler).
  4. Select the desired delivery time in the integrated calendar.
  5. Review the order details, print the customer order details form and include it in the package, together with the form in the downloads section of the voucher on the Filament2Print website.

Now you can follow every step of the debinding and sintering process. You can even consult the documentation for each step.

Thanks to the combination of BASF's Ultrafuse metal filaments and the debinding and sintering service, 3D printing of steels is easily and affordably available to everyone.

*Larger parts may be shipped with ELNIK's prior approval. To do so, please contact them before sending the parts.

Este producto es un bono en forma de código canjeable que da derecho al servicio de debinding y sinterizado de filamentos metálicos de BASF Ultrafuse.
This service is not provided by and is provided by ELNIK Systems GmbH. The entire process has been validated and approved by BASF, however, the success of the process is highly dependent on the geometry, dimensions and printing conditions of the part. It is therefore recommended to read carefully all the information available in the BASF Ultrafuse metal filaments user guide and to follow the manufacturer's recommendations faithfully.
There is a risk of failure and some of the parts may not present the expected finishes or even fragment during the process. This is usually a consequence of defects during printing, poor adhesion of layers or inadequate geometries. The risk of failure increases depending on the volume or complexity of the parts. By purchasing this voucher, the customer understands and assumes this risk and does not guarantee that returned parts will meet the customer's standards or expectations. In the event of any claim of this nature the customer should contact directly the company responsible for providing the service: ELNIK Systems GmbH.
