Acquisition of a filament extrusion line for 3D printing.


Certech has acquired an extrusion line of filaments calibrated for FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling) technology, consisting of a vacuum conformation bath that can reach temperatures of 45 ° C, a laser cell to control the drawing system (caterpillar haul-off) in continuous and a winder. Depending on the material and the target diameter, the production speed can reach 100 m / min. Diameters between 1.5 and 4 mm to within 10 µm can be obtained, in particular the conventional diameters of 1.75 mm and 2.85 mm.

Upstream, we are equipped to characterize (rheology, mechanical properties, etc.), formulate, filter and granulate all types of polymer flux (recycled, charged, etc.) in order to obtain good quality filaments that can be used in conventional FDM equipment. Downstream, we can validate the filaments produced using a standard FDM printer.
