Additive manufacturing – 3D printing
Industrial 3D printing: Functional materials for liquid additive manufacturing
DELO has taken its high-performance materials for 3D printing to the next level, thus unlocking new possibilities in liquid additive manufacturing. The materials provide various functions including transparency and flexibility. They can be combined in one printing process and display isotropic strengths in all printing directions.
The liquid materials can be dispensed in layers at room temperature and, after curing by means of UV light, are crosslinked duromers. Liquid additive manufacturing therefore offers an alternative to 3D printing methods such as fused deposition modeling (FDM), stereolithography (SLA) and material jetting.
The material properties are comparable to those of high performance plastics like polyamide and PEEK. They are therefore well-suited for applications in the automotive and microelectronic industry, and for fine functional structures, in particular.
