FDM 3D Printing Service

Functional, high strength components without the need for tooling

What is FDM Printing?

FDM 3D Printing Technology build parts layer-by-layer from the bottom up by heating and extruding thermoplastic filament. The 3D printer heats the thermoplastic to a semi-liquid state and deposits it in ultra-fine beads along the extrusion path. Where support or buffering is needed, the 3D printer deposits a removable material that acts as scaffolding.

Complex geometries and cavities that would otherwise be problematic become practical with FDM 3D printing technology, using the same tried and tested thermoplastics found in traditional manufacturing processes. For applications that demand tight tolerances, toughness and environmental stability – or specialized properties like electrostatic dissipation, translucence, biocompatibility, VO flammability or FST ratings – there’s an FDM thermoplastic that can deliver.

FDM Materials

FDM materials offer specialised properties like toughness, electrostatic dissipation, translucence, biocompatibility, UV Resistance, VO flammability and FST ratings. This makes them perfect for demanding designers and engineers in aerospace, automotive, medical and other industries.

Materials available include ABS, Nylon, PC ABS, PPSF/PPSU, ULTEM1010, ABSi, ABS-M30i, ASA, Ultem9085.
