Fused Deposition Modelling (FDM®)

THIS TECHNIQUE IS IDEAL FOR LARGE PARTS WITH TIGHT SURFACES AND PROTOTYPES MADE IN THIS WAY CAN BE USED FOR FUNCTIONAL OR AESTHETIC VALIDATION

Fused deposition modeling (FDM®) produces geometrically stable parts that can easily be processed, painted or metallized.

APPLICATIONS

Fused deposition modelling is an ideal solution to:

  • Test your prototypes
  • Produce durable and high-stability parts

OUR ASSETS

  • Professionals on hand
  • Technical expertise
  • Submission of proposals
  • ISO 9001 – EN 9100 Certifications

PRODUCTION-GRADE MATERIALS : ABS, PC, ULTEM®

MANUFACTURING PROCESS

Used above all for large parts with few details, polymer fused deposition modeling enables the forming, over successive layers, of a 3D model from an STL file.

This technique consists of melting a thermoplastic thread (ABS) using a nozzle heated to a high temperature. The sintered filament (to the nearest tenth of a millimeter) which comes out is deposited on the line and sticks to what has been deposited beforehand.

In short, the part is built by depositing a melted thread extruded by a heated nozzle guided by data from the CAD.
