ABS (FDM)

ABS stands for Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene, three monomers mixed and linked together. Used in array of industries world wide, well known for its exceptional mechanical properties. ABS is stronger with higher temperature resistance, but it has bad odour. ABS also tends to warp easily when cooled down instantly after printing therefore it is printed in an enclosed chamber. It is not suitable for food contact & in-vivo applications.

  • Resolution of Printed Layer: 60 micron (0.06mm)
  • Melting Temperature: 225 C – 245 C
  • Tensile stress at break: 33.9 MPa
  • Hardness: 76 (Shore D)

Aluminium (SLM)

AlSi10Mg is an aluminium is a typical casting alloy with good casting properties and is typically 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.

  • Achievable Part accuracy: 100 micron
  • Tensile Strength: 460 Mpa
  • Hardness:    119 HBW
  • Thermal Conductivity at 20 C
  • Specific Heat Capacity: 920 J/kg C

 

Cobalt Chrome (SLM)

Parts made from CobaltChrome MP1 can be machined, spark-eroded, welded, micro shotpeened, polished and coated if required. They are suitable for biomedical applications, and for parts requiring high mechanical properties in elevated temperatures and with good corrosion resistance. Due to the layer wise building method, the parts have a certain anisotropy, which can be reduced or removed by appropriate heat treatment

  • Achievable part accuracy: 60 Micron
  • Tensile Stregnth: 1350 Mpa
  • Co-efficient of Thermal Expansion: Over 20 - 500 C

Full-Color Sandstone (CJP)

Sandstone is a Full-color 3D printable material which is perfect for figurines, avatars, showcase models with a decent resolution of prints. After printing, the models are finished with a cyanoacrylate (super glue) sealant to ensure durability and vivid colors. The final product is a hard, brittle material that works great for figurines and visual models, but isn't well suited to functional parts or daily handing. Models should be handled carefully, and not exposed to water as it will cause fading.

  • Print Layer resolution: 100 micron (0.1mm)
  • Minimum Supported Wall thickness: 2.0mm
  • Minimum Embossed/engraved detail: 0.4mm
  • Tensile Strength: 2.83 MPa

 

High Detailed Resin (MJP)

This durable clear plastic delivers high transparency and Class VI capability for medical, prototyping and tooling applications. It is widely used to create models, prototypes, patterns, and production parts for a range of industries from engineering and product design to manufacturing, dentistry, jewellery, model making, and education.

  • Tensile Strength: 42.4 Mpa
  • Heat Distortion Temperature: 56 C
  • Resolution of Layer Height:
    • XHD Printing Mode: 16 micron (0.016mm)
    • UHD Printing Mode: 29 micron (0.029mm)
    • HD Printing Mode: 32 micron (0.032mm)

PLA (FDM)

PLA stands for Polylactic acid, originally developed as bio-plastic. PLA is derived from plant starches found in potatoes, corn and soy. PLA works for wide range of 3D printing applications because it is so easy to use. It is very rigid and actually quite strong but is very brittle at the same time.

  • Resolution of Printed layer: 60 micron (0.06mm)
  • Melting temperature: 145 C – 160 C
  • Glass Transition: ~60 C
  • Hardness: 83 (Shore D)

Polyamide (SLS)

Polyamide is one of the most popular 3D printing materials used by professional 3D printing companies. Its advantages are manifold: it is available at a reasonable price, it can include interlinking and interlocking parts, and it can be finished in various ways (dyed, smoothed, spray-painted, given a velvet finish). Standard Nylon (SLS) - PA 12 - has all-around great mechanical properties and chemical resistance and is ideal for functional parts and prototypes.

  • Tensile Strength: 54 Mpa
  • Hardness: 75 (Shore D)
  • Melting Point: 200 C

Stainless Steel (SLM)

Precipitation hardening steels are widely used in engineering applications which require corrosion and strength. Parts built from Stainless Steel (17-4PH) can be machined, shot-peened and polished in as-built or heat-treated states. The material provides strong resistance against corrosion and is distinguished for its high ductility. These features make it a great candidate for implementation in several industries, such as the medical field for surgical assistance, endoscopic surgery, or orthopaedics; in the aerospace industry for producing mechanical parts; in the automobile industry for corrosion-resistant parts; but also for making watches and jewellery.

  • Hardness: 42.8 HRC
  • Tensile Strength: 886 Mpa at 72 samples

Titanium (SLM)

Alpha-beta titanium(Ti64) alloy features high strength, low weight ratio and excellent corrosion resistance. Titanium is a lustrous grey metal, stronger than gold & platinum and three times stronger than steel. It is bio-compatible so therefore it used for production of bio-medical implants. Due to the layer wise building method, the parts have a certain anisotropy, which can be reduced or removed by appropriate heat treatment

  • Achievable part accuracy: 50 micron
  • Tensile Strength: 860 Mpa
  • Max Long term operating Temp: 350 C
