Do you want to print faster and increase productivity? Like most, of course you do. But if you are looking for an alternative to ABS and seeking greater strength and versatility for professional 3D printing, then you’ll want to check out Innofil3D’s new professional series lineup, to include their latest product, PRO1.
Innofil3D just announced their news at the Additive Manufacturing Europe 2016 show in Amsterdam, running from June 28-30, and giving visitors a chance to see all the latest technology, as well as presenting a great venue for companies to show off new releases. With a focus on industrial 3D printing, Innofil3D’s Professional Series is designed to include engineering materials meant for fabricating functional prints, prototypes or low volume production.
“To give it such a presumptive series label is a serious matter,” states the Innofil3D team. “To be worthy of being labeled a professional filament, it must add significant productivity benefits to the most demanding engineering environments.”
“Our commitment to material science has made us the first filament manufacturer to release standardized material data for 3D-printed parts according to ISO 527, 179 and 178. We present the first in our series of Professional filaments–PRO1.”
Innofil3D employs a team of polymer chemists, and they were able to develop this new filament with numerous benefits, beginning with the fact that it’s as easy to use as PLA but works at speeds not previously thought possible, while also retaining the required mechanical properties.
“By varying the print settings for this multi-purpose robust filament, users can home in on optimizing for speed, strength, surface quality or a mix of those qualities beyond performance levels of traditional filaments,” said Innofil3D.
You have the opportunity with this new material to reduce print times by up to 80%, and produce models that excel over what you see with ABS in mechanical properties. While you can use ‘blazing speed,’ the integrity of the print is maintained, along with offering a superior surface finish. Users can look forward to consistency in color and quality too, with each batch.
“I have found PRO1 to be an extremely versatile, high quality filament able to create strong, robust parts with exceptional aesthetic qualities,” stated Dr. Gavin Williams, Senior Technical Advisor, Institute for Innovation in Sustainable Engineering (IISE) at the University of Derby. “The filament performs very well during printing with a consistent flow and no extrusion problems.”
Other customers so far seem very happy with the product also, stating that it is everything Innofil3D says in terms of quality and strength, and then some, as they are able to make highly functional parts without having to constantly fool with settings.
“I have to say that for me this is a game changer! I’m really impressed about the speeds I achieved with this material. Printing at 70mm/s with a proper and good result is no longer a problem,” said Juri at 3dworkbench in Switzerland. “Printing at low speed with low resolution like 0.05mm ended up in a smooth and perfect finish.”
Suitable for all desktop 3D printers, Innofil3D sees this 3D printing filament as one that will offer a world of new satisfaction to users prototyping and requiring considerable strength, with no time to waste. Discuss further over in the Innofil3D New 3D Printing Filaments forum over at 3DPB.com.
