More and more customers access the fast 3D Print Service for durable wear parts made of high-performance plastics Igus back: be it for short-term spare parts procurement, for prototype construction or for the production of lubricant-free small series. Therefore, the Cologne plastics specialist has now tripled its 3D printing capacity in the area of ÔÇőÔÇőthe SLS process.

As the first service provider sets Devil prototypes the Freeformer from Arburg in your production. This makes the tool-less production of plastic parts from original materials possible. As with 3D printing, the 3D CAD data is read in and disassembled. The desired part is then built up layer by layer.

Particularly for the 3D printing of plastic injection molds, a combination of high production accuracy and good material properties is required. With the Hot lithography technology Cubicure offers a stereolithographic process, which processes highly precise viscose photopolymers at strongly increased structuring temperatures of up to 120 ┬░ C.

Covestro presents a demonstrator for a shock absorber that uses three processes made of three materials. The complex part marks another milestone on the way from the production of individual prototypes through the integration of various functions to mass production.

velox0718Velox and SK Chemicals present the jointly developed "Skyplete" range of plastics for the 3D printing industry. It is suitable for filament manufacturers who require easy processing of the materials with increased temperature resistance as well as the optimization of common compounds with regard to their impact resistance.
