3D printing known as additive manufacturing does not merely involve the use of a single technology. It implies being aware of the options materials can offer for the manufacture of new products, as well as for adapting and creating new materials based on adding value and additional characteristics to the parts manufactured with this technology.
Materials for fused deposition modelling are based mostly on virgin polymers like PLA (Polylactic Acid) and ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene). These polymers are perfect for prototype production but their properties may be insufficient for final product development. Polymers can be modified with different fillers to meet the final application requirements and functionalities.
In AIMPLAS, we provide solutions for the development of high-performance materials for FDM (Fused Deposition Modelling) and SLS (Selective Laser Sintering).
We develop plastic materials for 3D printing via physical and/or chemical modifications until the requirements defined by the client are met.
We help you to optimise the manufacturing process of rods and powder. The materials are processed at our pilot plants and then we assist you in the scale-up at your company’s facilities.
