Darren and List,

A number of companies, research institutions and universities use
techniques similar to Keltool techniques (i.e create a green part, sinter and
infiltrate). RapidSteel 2.0 from DTM is similar and processes from
ProMetal and other RP service providers are also similar. In addition, I
am doing research in similar techniques for injection mold tooling, EDM
electrodes, die-cast tooling and other related areas and would be happy to
give you more details upon request.

Subject: Keltool alternatives?

Dear list,

I am a research student looking at rapid tooling technologies for
polymer processing. I am particularly interested in the "Keltool"
sintering infiltration technology and would like to know if there are
similar but alternative technologies available today.
