At the moment, UltiMaker introduced the addition of PET Carbon Fiber (PET CF), an easy-to-use and versatile composite materials, to its portfolio of high-performance supplies for UltiMaker S sequence 3D printers. UltiMaker PET CF affords superior power, excessive warmth resistance, and excessive chemical resistance for robust high-performance thermoplastic purposes throughout a variety of industries.
With its distinctive mechanical properties, UltiMaker PET Carbon Fiber (PET CF) empowers engineers to supply stronger and extra correct elements for a mess of purposes, resembling manufacturing instruments, jigs and fixtures, in addition to end-use elements. Engineers may reap the benefits of the advantages of PET CF for his or her engineering prototypes, which allow simple and in depth testing of technical ideas and capabilities. UltiMaker PET CF additionally affords a dependable answer for changing damaged or hard-to-source manufacturing elements.
By using its robust mechanical and thermal properties, producers can swiftly print substitute elements, eliminating the necessity for expensive manufacturing line shutdowns. The fabric’s glorious power and stiffness make it supreme for high-performance purposes, delivering enhanced half efficiency even underneath demanding situations.
Key Options of UltiMaker PET Carbon Fiber (PET CF)
One of many standout options of PET CF is its means to realize even increased power, stiffness, and temperature resistance by annealing. By annealing printed elements, engineers can obtain a temperature resistance of as much as 181°C and enhance power by as much as 30% and stiffness by as much as 10%, leading to elements that excel in difficult environments.
“We’re thrilled to introduce the UltiMaker PET CF, UltiMaker’s first composite materials that has been particularly made to work completely with UltiMaker S sequence printers,” stated Nadav Goshen, CEO at UltiMaker. “PET CF’s means to realize increased power and temperature resistance by annealing units it aside from different supplies, whereas its versatility permits engineers to make use of it for a lot of purposes. The fabric represents a big development in our portfolio and reinforces our dedication to delivering cutting-edge options.”
Exhibiting low moisture sensitivity in comparison with different carbon fiber supplies, PET CF requires restricted drying. When saved within the UltiMaker Materials Station, it stays well-conditioned, enabling a dependable printing expertise and constantly high-quality prints. PET CF is appropriate with devoted assist supplies, resembling UltiMaker PVA and Breakaway, providing customers full design freedom and enabling the creation of complicated composite elements with out limitations.
UltiMaker additionally affords PET CF in a number of colours, together with black, grey, and blue, as proven above. This distinctive function permits customers to color-code their carbon fiber prints, catering to particular use instances or aesthetic necessities. The fabric is absolutely built-in into the UltiMaker platform by NFC-equipped spools, providing a seamless expertise that makes use of NFC materials recognition, a devoted Print Core CC, assist materials compatibility, and intent profiles.
