Nylon PA12

Our Nylon PA12 is a fine polyamide powder, although you may know it better as plastic. Nylon PA12 is great for both prototyping and manufacturing end use parts because of its variety of applications, strength, mild flexibility and lower cost. Unfinished parts directly out of the 3D Printing machines have a granular or slightly porous feel to them. One of the great features of Nylon PA12 is its range of finishing options (e.g. electroplating, stove enameling, vibratory grinding, tub coloring, bonding, powder coating, etc.). 

Properties  

  • Multipurpose material
  • Balanced property profile
  • High strength and stiffness 
  • Good chemical resistance
  • Excellent long-term constant behavior
  • High selectivity and detail resolution
  • Various finishing possibilities (e.g. metallisation, stove enamelling, vibratory grinding, tub coloring, bonding, powder coating, flocking) 
  • Bio compatible according to EN ISO 10993-1 and USP/level VI/121 °C
  • Approved for food contact in compliance with the EU Plastics Directive 2002/72/EC (exception: high alcoholic foodstuff)

 

Applications

  • Functional parts
  • Medical applications, e.g. prostheses
  • Fully functional plastic parts of highest quality
  • Substitute typical injection moulding plastics
  • Realisation of movable part connections

Aluminum

Aluminum is a typical casting alloy with good casting properties and is commonly used for cast parts with thin walls and complex geometry. It offers good strength, hardness and dynamic properties and is therefore also used for parts subject to high loads. Parts 3D printed in aluminum are ideal for applications which require a combination of good thermal properties and low weight, e.g. motorsports and aerospace interior. The parts can be machined, spark-eroded, welded, micro shot-peened, polished and coated if required.

Properties

  • Good casting properties
  • Good strength and hardness
  • High dynamic properties
  • Unfinished parts typically have a rough surface but various finishing degrees can achieve smooth surfaces.

Applications

  • Functional prototypes
  • Series-production parts
  • Motorsports
  • Automotive/Series Production Vehicles
  • Aerospace Interior

Stainless Steel

The iron-based alloy StainlessSteel 316L is characterized by a high ductility and corrosion resistance. It can be used in many areas, such as watch and jewelry making, in the medical field for surgical aids, endoscopic surgery and orthopedics or in aerospace for the manufacture of mounting parts. The manufactured parts can be further processed or polished.

Properties

  • Excellent corrosion resistance, high ductility
  • Post-processing possible
  • Meets the requirements of the ASTM F138 norm (“Standard Specification for Wrought 18Cr-14Ni-2.5Mo Stainless Steel Bar and Wire for Surgical Implants, UNS S31673")

Applications

  • Watch and jewellery making
  • Automotive
  • Aerospace
  • Food and chemical plants
 

Titanium

Titanium Ti64 is a Ti6Al4V alloy. This well-known light alloy has excellent mechanical properties and corrosion resistance combined with low specific weight. With a wide range of applications and ease of manufacturing utilizing DMLS 3D printing technology this material becomes much more cost effective.

Properties

  • Light weight with high specific strength (strength per density)
  • Corrosion resistance
  • Commonly used in biomedical applications
  • Laser-sintered parts fulfil requirements of ASTM F1472 (for Ti6Al4V) and ASTM F136 (for Ti6Al4V ELI) regarding maximum concentration of impurities
  • Very good bioadhesion (cell growth tested with good results) 

Applications

  • Functional prototypes
  • Series-production parts
  • Aerospace
  • Motorsports
  • Biomedical Implants
