3DGence, a Polish manufacturer of professional 3D printers and an expert in the implementation of 3D printing technology, has increased the functionality of its flagship 3DGence INDUSTRY F340 with flexible 3D printing material. Flexfill 98A with Shore 98A hardness is the first flexible filament that works with this industrial 3D printer, which can be also 3D printed using the soluble support material – ESM-10. The flow control system in 3DGence INDUSTRY F340 ensures precise filament feeding speed, which in the case of TPU plastics is necessary to obtain high-quality prints.
– Our customers increasingly use flexible materials in their work, that is why we constantly meet the their needs. Flexfill 98A is characterized by increased high abrasion resistance and tensile strength. Therefore, the material is suitable for printing dynamically loaded parts, e.g. seals or parts that require frequent bending. Printouts made with Flexfill 98A could be supported with the ESM-10 soluble material, which can be washed out. This enables us to obtain even the most complex geometries, says Mikołaj Skorupa, 3D Printing Application Engineer, 3DGence.
Continuous expansion of the base of available materials working with 3DGence INDUSTRY F340 is possible thanks to the use of 3D modular system in this 3D printer. With this solution, all customers can upgrade their 3D printer with new material, they do not need to buy a new machine, just replace the module. This is a much more versatile solution for users, who can quickly replace the module depending on the required material.
– There are not so many industrial 3D printers capable of printing simultaneously with engineering materials such as ABS, fiber-reinforced polyamides or PC and now also with TPU. 3DGence INDUSTRY F340 is an exception on the market due to its versatility. Thanks to the use of a direct system, this 3D printer can handle both stiff and flexible materials. Cooperation with Fillamentum enabled 3DGence to expand its offer with Flexfill 98A. – says Mateusz Sidorowicz, Marketing Director at 3DGence.
