Aerosport has purchased a Carima DM400 top-down DLP® 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.”
This machine is the world’s first large build size DLP 3D printer.This printer allows industrial manufacturers to directly print mass production.The dual 2K engine with high quality surface prints precision parts. Top-down dual 2K DLP 3D printer.
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.
Adaptive3D and Aerosport Additive, a service bureau based in Ohio, USA, announced their partnership to expedite the adoption of additively manufactured solutions for elastomers. Aerosport will serve as an application development and manufacturing partner for functional parts and products produced from Adaptive3D’s market leading photoelastomeric 3D printing materials. The announcement follows Aerosport’s purchase of a […]
