Chromatic 3D Supplies declares Easy-Mode know-how for 3D printing rubber elements

Chromatic 3D Supplies has developed a know-how that delivers ‘ultra-smooth’ 3D printed rubber elements.

In what the corporate believes is a breakthrough improvement, producers are in a position to additively manufacture {smooth}, high-quality polyurethane elements with no post-processing or floor ending with Easy-Mode know-how.

Easy-Mode will be utilised by customers through Chromatic’s Reactive Extrusion Additive Manufacturing (RX-AM) 3-in-1 platform, which incorporates supplies, software program and {hardware} for deposition printing with reactive chemistry. RX-AM makes use of printable polyurethanes with Shore A hardness starting from 50 to 90, in addition to customized grades with various colors, hardnesses and particular properties reminiscent of static discharge.

Components printed with Easy-Mode are stated to have superior aesthetics and finer dimensional accuracy. Chromatic 3D Supplies says merchandise will be printed with exact uniform thickness at sub-millimetre scale, making it appropriate for the manufacture of rubber bladders and different elastomeric merchandise that increase and contract. Different potential functions embody seals, gaskets, and grommets.

“Sealing requires a {smooth} floor, however 3D printed elements have at all times had layer strains or roughness. We’ve developed a method to simply and cost-effectively 3D print merchandise which are ultra-smooth with out further steps,” commented Dr. Cora Leibig, Chromatic CEO and founder. “It’s a breakthrough for 3D printing these skilled functions that should be alright and watertight.”

“We developed a method to transcend merely making use of our response know-how to FDM printing,” added Dr. Bart Engendahl, Chromatic’s Managing Director in Germany. “Easy-Mode makes use of chemistry to create an ultra-bonded and {smooth} half. We consider this printing method delivers the world’s smoothest printing alongside the Z or peak axis.”
