ARBURG successfully prints Mechnano’s new PC ESD

ARBURG, one of the leading manufacturers of plastics processing machinery, has successfully printed Mechnano’s new polycarbonate thermoplastic granulate “PC ESD” on its Freeformer range of additive manufacturing printers with granulate extrusion. PC ESD has static dissipative properties achieved through Mechnano’s breakthrough discrete, dispersed and functionalized carbon nanotube (CNT) D’Func technology.

“Mechnano is excited to simultaneously announce our release of PC ESD and its qualification on ARBURG’s Freeformer printers. With ARBURG’s global reach, PC ESD will be accessible to a wide user base,” said Mechnano President Bryce Keeler. “The ability to additively produce functional components with ESD properties will create substantial advancements in the electronics manufacturing market, giving ARBURG printer owners a competitive edge in prototyping and production speed.”

Mechnano’s proprietary technology, D’Func, unravels, separates and functionalizes CNTs, disperses them in the thermoplastic polycarbonate plastic and pellets them for processing on the freeformer. Unlike other CNT-enhanced materials, Mechnano’s PC-ESD pellets offer homogeneous electrical properties. The nanotechnology-based dispersions prevent CNT agglomeration, which leads to inconsistent static dissipation, and enable 100% ESD coverage with precise values.

To see parts printed with PC ESD, visit ARBURG booth #3812 at RAPID + TCT in Chicago, May 2-4, 2023. If interested in a part sample and more information, please contact Mechnano.
