3D printing in reinforced polymers and metal
Fibre-Reinforced Plastic Solutions
They adequately replace parts made of traditional plastics (ABS, nylon, PDA, polypropylene, etc.).
Base Material: Onyx (Nylon + carbon fibre)
Onyx is a nylon filled with carbon fibre micro particles.
- 1,4 times more tear resistant than ABS (40Mpa)
- 1.4 times more rigid than ABS
- It has different reinforcement possibilities between layers
The addition of the following reinforcements improves the adhesion between layers.
Carbon fibre reinforcement
- 2.5 times more breaking strength (up to 590 Mpa)
- 8 times more rigid
Glass fibre or Kevlar reinforcement
- Increased fatigue resistance
- Higher breaking strength (from 590 to 610 Mpa)
Heavy-Duty Metal Solutions
For long-lasting components withstanding heavy wear, high temperatures or aggressive corrosive environments.
Stainless steel 17-4 PH
- Multi-purpose stainless steel for industrial applications
- Heat treatment up to 36 HRC
- Breaking strength of 1250
H-13 tool steel
- Harder than 17-4 PH steel
- Retains its properties at high temperatures
- Characteristics compatible with many applications
- Heat treatment up to 45 HRC
- Breaking strength of 1500 Mpa
Inconel 625 steel
- Nickel-Chromium based superalloying
- Corrosion and high temperature resistant
- Meets ASTM B443 chemical requirements
- Breaking strength of 600 Mpa at 600 ºC
3D printing of jigs, toolings and other unique components is ideal for projects with:
Stages in the design and manufacturing process
Fibre-reinforced plastic printing process
The process is simple as the part is ready for either an aesthetic finish or any other post-processing.
Sintered metal printing process
In this case, the piece must go through several processes after printing:
- Washing: the remains of the wax binder are removed before going into the sintering furnace.
- Sintering: the piece is heated in a special furnace to increase the density of the material.
- Machining or heat treatment: depending on the application, heat treatment or machining can be carried out.
