Aerosport has purchased a VistionTech 8k 3D printer along with multiple vats of Adaptive3D’s flagship elastomer products Elastic ToughRubber™ 90 and Elastic ToughRubber 70.
“We have spent several years validating the market for 3d printed elastomeric parts utilizing other platforms,” said Aerosport CEO Geoff Combs. “But the top-down DLP printing platform combined with the superior performance of Adpative3D’s photoelastomer products generates a higher ROI to my business while delivering better quality parts to my customers. This is validated by over three months of backlog production capacity already booked for this program.”
Xtreme 8K DLP
EnvisionTEC’s Xtreme 8K DLP is the largest size production-grade DLP 3D-printer in the world. Created by one of the most experienced teams of engineers in 3D printing, this large format 3D printer allows for the production of exceptionally large 3D parts, built at fast speeds without sacrificing surface quality and part accuracy.
Adaptive3D has developed a unique product family in the 3D printing industry that solves many of difficulties that come along with the Additive Manufacturing process. Adaptive3D focuses on creating materials used for Additive Manufacturing that:
Are Flexible & Tough
Are Strain-Tolerant (150%-450%)
Have a Broad Range of Durometer (Shore A 20-90)
Are a One-Part System
Allow Rapid Post-Processing
Elastic ToughRubber ™ (ETR) unlocks the benefits of additive manufacturing to those in the rubber, polyurethane and foam industries. Elastic ToughRubber ™ is simply the toughest AM elastomer on the market. With a tear strength of 38 kN/m, 190% elongation and ultimate tensile strength of 14 MPa, ETR mimics leading injection molded thermoplastic polyurethanes like PEBAX® and Elastollan®. If you make parts from technical foams, rubbers or polyurethanes, ETR is your solution to additive manufacturing end parts and products.
Elastic ToughRubber™ 90 and Elastic ToughRubber 70 Properties
Adaptive3D Materials Key Features & Benefits
– Flexibility and simplicity in design
– Modulus and performance comparable to foamed TPU
Designed for functional prototypes of audio ear buds, wearable electronics, and anatomical medical models, Soft ToughRubber™ (STR) delivers silicone feel and mechanical properties with the resolution and surface finish that DLP® printing provides.
