FUSED DEPOSITION MODELING (FDM)

FAST AFFORDABLE PROTOTYPE AND PART

Fused deposition modelling (FDM) is one of the most accessible and widely used forms of additive manufacturing. From the bottom up and ñayer by ñayer, FDM machines build parts by heating and extruding thermoplastic filament. The thermoplastic material used is suitable for cost-effective parts and complex geometries (functional prototypes, durable manufacturing tools and low-volume parts).

LARGE SIZES- TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS

Fused Deposition Modelling technology is one of our areas of expertise and we manufacture in two sizes:

Minimum wall thickness 0,5 – 1 mm
Minimum detail to be reproduced 0.3 mm
Accuracy 0.1% (min +/- 0,2)
Maximum part size 400 * 400 * 400 mm
Layer thickness 0,020-0,080 mm

FDM PROCESS

Layer by layer deposition of fused thermoplastic materials. The best technology for the production of final parts and industrial prototyping.

1

Validation

Together with the customer, the technical team verifies the manufacturability of the part in order to subsequently validate it.

2

Production

Machinery and staff work together for an optimal production.

3

Post-processing

The removal of the support material, which can break or dissolve, is a fundamental step in FDM technology.

4

Dimensional control

The part is measured at the end of the process, ensuring that the final result meets the customer’s specifications.
