The latest FUNMAT HT received significant upgrades on both the extruder and chamber temperatures. Temperature of extruder of FUNMAT HT is now increased to 450°C, up from 400°C three months ago. Similarly, FUNMAT HT’s constant temperature chamber is raised from 70°C to 90°C, enabling users to print in high performance functional materials like PEEK, ULTEM and PPSU, with even greater reliability and print quality.
PEEK, ULTEM and PPSU are high performance functional materials which are ideal for demanding automotive, aerospace, industrial, oil and gas, dental, research and medical applications.
Additionally, end users of FUNMAT HT can print in a broad range of engineering thermoplastics such as NYLON-Carbon Fiber, PC-ABS, PC, ASA, ABS, TPU, among others. For instance, in automotive application, SAIC Yanfeng used FUNMAT HT to 3D print functional size control units of inspection gauge for automotive seating.
SAIC Yanfeng is a preferred automotive seating partner of SAIC General Motor, SAIC Volkswagen, Changan Ford, Changan Mazda and Dongfeng Nissan. With the 3D printing solution from INTAMSYS, the gauge made up of five separate control units can now be printed in an unibody structure, leading to faster gauge development and higher production efficiency while meeting all gauge’s functional size requirements.
Starting in October, INTAMSYS will roll out the upgraded FUNMAT PRO which is now equipped with a constant temperature chamber. With the upgraded FUNMAT PRO, users can now achieve greater reliability when 3D printing large-size and full-size objects in NYLON-Carbon Fiber, PCABS and PC, which are commonly used in industrial and automotive applications.
The open system of INTAMSYS 3D printers has made it ideal for industrial and academic research on both materials and applications. INTAMSYS works with top global universities and industrial manufacturers in advancing high performance functional materials research and applications.
Both the FUNMAT HT and FUNMAT PRO are now on display at the TCT Show at the NEC, Birmingham.
