Today our Additive Manufacturing Podcast team discusses continuous fiber 3d printing, strengthening 3d prints by 200%, a new 3d printer designed for high-temperature materials, 3d printing with Pantone color, and last but not least, the J750 Digital Anatomy 3D Printer.
2:40 Anisoprint, A Russian manufacturer of continuous fiber 3D printers and materials, has entered into the UK market with iMakr, a London-based global reseller of 3D printers, scanners, and services.
The company’s 3D printing technology processes composite materials to produce structural parts with the strength and properties required for end-use applications, from industrial manufacturing to individual use including athletic equipment. https://3dprintingindustry.com/news/anisoprint-brings-continuous-fiber-3d-printing-technology-to-the-uk-161772/
14:25 New process could strengthen 3-D-printed materials by 200 percent
The strength of 3-D-printed products could be improved through a new technique developed by scientists at UT and Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
The new process, which uses UV irradiation, could strengthen bonds of 3-D-printed materials to withstand 200 percent more transverse stress, according to a study published in Macromolecules.
21:30 Polish 3D printer manufacturer Zortrax has introduced its latest FFF 3D printer designed for working with challenging materials such as PEEK.
The Endureal, which will debut this week at TCT Show 2019, is the company’s third-generation industrial 3D printer and features a large print bed, dual-extrusion, and an enclosed heated printing chamber for controlled print quality.
28:32 What is Pantone and why is this a big deal for color 3D printing?
Pantone’s matching system, also known as PMS Color, provides a universal language for color to make sure 3d printer filament and resins are exactly what the designer ordered. It helps designers and manufacturers communicate the precise color needed for a product. Universal measurements are for more than time, distance, mass, and temperature. Having a universal language for color is nearly as critical. Like our previous article, products that are not to spec cost money and time.
