STRATASYS
PA 12 available for range of 3D printing systems / Improved strength, durability and break resistance
Digital manufacturer Stratasys (Eden Prairie, Minnesota / USA; www.stratasys.com), which supplies 3D printers and materials for prototyping, production and personal use, has introduced the first PA material specifically developed for use in its range of “Fortus” 3D production systems.

“FDM” PA 12 is based on fused deposition modelling (FDM) technology and is claimed to create tougher, more flexible unfilled nylon parts than other similar materials. The company claims it offers up to five times greater resistance to breaking, improved impact strength and an elongation-at-break twice that of other 3D printed PA 12 materials based on published specifications.

Stratasys said this creates opportunities for manufacturers in aerospace, automotive, home appliance and consumer electronics to more easily create durable parts that can withstand high vibration, repetitive stress or fatigue. Potential applications include interior panels, covers, environmental control ducting and vibration-resistant components, tools, manufacturing aids, and jigs and fixtures used in manufacturing processes.
