FDM 3D PRINTING

Fused Deposition Modelling (FDM) is a widely used technology and ideal for large scale printing, basic proof of concept models and simple prototyping 

TECHNICAL INFORMATION

We use Intamsys machinery for our FDM (Fused Deposition Modelling) production. These top of the range industrial 3D printers are designed for controlled, consistent production of end-use parts. Using wire-fed stock material, these machines use the latest in environment control to ensure maximum dimensional stability (± 0.15%) and accuracy (lower limit ± 0.2 mm). Capable of reaching temperatures of up to 500°C these machines can print any material including; PEEK, PEI / ULTEM & Carbon Fibre.

Combined with our knowledge and advanced finishing techniques, we use the Funmat series to produce the best quality FDM 3D prints on the market. See our material properties below or download a data sheet.

FDM is well-suited for basic proof-of-concept models and simple prototyping.

Parts with overhangs greater than 45 degrees will require support material. Our technicians will assess your parts and add this in automatically when programming your order.

We have a choice of Black, Grey and White colours for most materials, with some colour options available upon request. We also offer media blasting and professional spray painting services. 

All of our FDM materials can be hand finished apart from TPU.

Our PLA, PETG and PolyCarbonate materials are rated for food-contact. 

You can specify when placing our order your desired orientation using our order messaging system, otherwise our technical team will automatically orientate your part for you.

  • To reduce your part costs there are a number of options available; reduce the quality, reduce the infill, scale down the part and reduce the part thickness.
