3D printing specialist

Replace conventional machining by our 3D printing from the composite material. Save your time, money and effort. Join the digital manufacturing revolution.


3D printing of parts which are very difficult to make by the conventional way.

Composite 3D printing with continuous reinforcement is one step further than ordinary 3D printing.

3D printing from composite material is destined for the manufacture of functional parts.

3D printing from the new
composite material

We print on industrial 3D printers Markforged which use nylon mixed with chopped carbon fiber. This material is 40% stronger then ABS and offers excellent heat and chemical resistance. It is possible to add continous reinforcement from carbon fiber, kevlar or fiberglass during the printing. The printed part reaches the strenght of alluminium alloy AW-6061 but it has lower weight and the manufacture is less expensive than conventional manufacture. Let´s find out that 3D printed composite parts can compete with metal parts thanks to their mechanical properties.

Materials

ONYX - foundation material

The material consists of nylon and carbon fiber combination and is stronger and tougher than ABS. Following values are withnout use of continous reinforcement.

  • Tensile Stress at Yield: 36 MPa
  • Flexural Strength: 81 MPa
  • Tensile Modulus: 1,4 GPa
  • Flexural Modulus: 2,9 GPa
  • Tensile Strain at Break: 58 %
  • Heat Deflection Temp: 145 °C
  • Density: 1,2 g/cm3

Continuous Filament Fabrication (CFF)

Only with us, it is possible to add continous reinforcement from carbon fiber, kevlar or fiberglass during the 3D printing. The printed part reaches the strenght of alluminium alloy AW-6061 but it has lower weight.

Properties

FDM Technology

We use FDM technology (Fused Deposition Modeling) which is the method of additive manufacturing where layers of materials are fused together in a pattern to create an object. This technology needs only the necessary amount of material to build the model.

Proportions

Maximal dimension
X = 330 mm / Y = 270 mm / Z = 200 mm
(dimensional parts could be divided to more sections)

Minimal dimesion
X = 1,6 mm / Y = 1,6 mm / Z = 0,8 mm

Height of printing layer
0,1 mm / 0,125 mm / 0,2 mm

Postprocessing

When we divide the part, we consider the most appropriate technology to put all the parts together in the final product. We offer methods as welding, sticking, by mechanical or constructional way.

It is possible to insert metal bushes, threaded inserts, sliding bushes, electronic part etc. Final parts can be delivered chemically smoothed or lacquered.
