Le dépôt de filament fondu (FDM)

Agile Manufacturing vous offre le procédé par dépôt de filament fondu (FDM) pour le prototypage et les petites productions de pièces. Avec des dimensions allant jusqu’à 36’’ x 24’’ x 36″. Ces pièces imprimées en 3D sont utilisées dans le développement de produit et dans la fabrication additive, car elles sont robustes. Les prototypes d’ABS sont souvent utilisés pour des tests d’assemblage et de produits finaux, sauf quand le fini de surface compte, car ce procédé possède des finis de surface rugueux.

Le FDM est particulièrement utilisé lorsque que la finition de surface ne compte pas, mais ou de plus grandes forces mécaniques sont nécessaires. Les pièces sont poreuses, mais peuvent être scellées avec différent produits. Nous pouvons aussi construire les pièces vide pour sauver sur les couts de fabrication et le poids. Agile peut fabriquer les pièces de FDM en ABS, PCABS, PC, PC-ISO, PPSF et and ULTEM 9085 et 1010.

Pièces: 1 à 10+

Livré en: 2 à 4 jours

Frais: Commence à 50$

Excellent pour:

  • Prototype solide
  • Pièce de test
  • Protection contre les UV

How FDM Works

FDM printing uses an thin extruded filament as the raw material. The spool of material is fed through a heated nozzle and deposited at the bottom of the printer platform, where it solidifies. The machines build the 3D part one layer at a time, fusing each layer together from the bottom up.

Most FDM printers will outline the perimeter of the part first, moving to the interior edges next, and follow with the specified middle fill of the layer. All of this is accomplished in a temperature controlled build chamber with properly dried raw materials.

TOLÉRANCES

La majorité des pièces peuvent être produites de façons précises avec des tolérances de  .004″ pour le premier pouce et de +/- .002″ par pouce additionnel.

CHAMBRE DE CONSTRUCTION

Les dimensions des pièces de FDM peuvent allez jusqu’à 36’’ x 24’’ x 36″, ou plusieurs pièces peuvent être fabriqués en même temps.

MEILLEURES APPLICATIONS

Le FDM performe lors de test de durabilité, pour des cadres de montage en usine, ou pour les besoins de résistance aux UV.

Material Summary:

ULTEM* 9085 is a flame retardant high performance thermoplastic for direct digital manufacturing and rapid prototyping. It is ideal for the transportation industry due to its high strength-to-weight ratio and its FST (flame, smoke, and toxicity) rating. This unique material’s preexisting certifications make it an excellent choice for the commercial transportation industry – especially aerospace, marine and ground vehicles. Combined with a Fortus® 3D Production System, ULTEM 9085 allows design and manufacturing engineers to produce fully functional parts that are ideal for advanced functional prototypes or end use without the cost or lead time of traditional tooling.

Material Summary:

ABS-M30 is up to 25-70 percent stronger than standard Stratasys ABS and is an ideal material for conceptual modeling, functional prototyping, manufacturing tools, and end-use-parts. ABS-M30 has greater tensile, impact, and flexural strength than standard ABS. Layer bonding is significantly stronger than that of standard ABS, for a more durable part. This results in more realistic functional tests and higher quality parts for end use. When combined with a Fortus 3D Production System, ABS-M30 gives you Real Parts that are stronger, smoother, and with better feature detail.

Material Summary:

Now you can build consistently high-quality parts, with exceptional UV stability and the best aesthetics of any FDM® thermoplastic. ASA is poised to become the most popular all-purpose prototyping material for users of Fortus 360mc™, 380mc™, 400mc™, 450mc™ and 900mc™ 3D Production Systems. Matching or exceeding the mechanical properties of ABS, ASA may be your new favorite general prototyping material. Its UV-resistance makes it especially suited in end-use parts for outdoor commercial and infrastructure use. And its wide selection of colors and matte finish makes it ideal for attractive prototypes in consumer sporting goods, tools and automotive components and accessories.

Material Summary:

PC-ABS (polycarbonate-ABS) is one of the most widely used industrial thermoplastics. PC-ABS offers the most desirable properties of both materials – the superior strength and heat resistance of PC and the flexibility of ABS. PC-ABS blends are commonly used in automotive, electronics and telecommunications applications. Additionally, a PC-ABS part manufactured on a Fortus 3D Production System is 5-60 percent stronger than a part made on previous FDM® systems. When combined with a Fortus system, PC-ABS gives you Real Parts conceptual modeling, functional prototyping, manufacturing tools, and end-use-parts.

Material Summary:

ABS-ESD7 (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene-electrostatic dissipative) is an ABS thermoplastic with static dissipative properties for applications where a static charge can damage products, impair their performance or cause an explosion. ABS-ESD7 prevents a buildup of static electricity, so it will not produce a static shock or cause other materials like powders, dust and fine particles to stick to it. Ideal for electronic products with circuit boards and for the transportation and industrial equipment industries. Most widely used
to create jigs and fixtures for the assembly of electronic components, but it is also useful for building functional prototypes of fuel storage and delivery products, as well as cases, enclosures and packaging.
