Rapid tooling, built to endure. By building parts in polycarbonate (PC), Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) Technology lets engineers and designers marry the speed and agility of 3D printing with the reliability of the most widely used industrial thermoplastic.
With reliable FDM Technology producing strong PC parts in-house, manufacturers in automotive, commercial equipment and other industries gain the agility to seize more opportunities.
3D Printing With PC Thermoplastic
PC and FDM Technology produce functional prototypes, tooling and end-use parts in a familiar, durable engineering material. PC’s high tensile and flexural strength make it ideal for demanding prototyping needs, tooling and fixtures, and patterns for metal bending and composite work. Low-volume manufacturing and customization become feasible, and testing provides more confidence. Breakaway or soluble support materials are available for PC.
