Chemicals, Hot off the Printer: Additive Manufacturing in Chemicals and Pharma

09/17/2018 - What has advent of additive manufacturing in store for the process industry? – The 3D-printer becomes a gamechanger: While some companies set themselves apart by using customized materials or dream of the pill out of the printer, others fear the impending marginalization of the chemical industry. Gold rush or hangover? An industry is looking for answers between polymer filaments, prototypes and printed pills. read...

Tailor-Made for 3D-Printing

The diverse materials and solutions which the company will be displaying at the fair include polyamides. Ideal for production of parts in small batches, polyamides can be used for the transportation as well as the electrical and electronics sector. Using flame retardants, glass fibers, and light stabilizers, Clariant’s glass fiber filled Flame Retardant Polyamide 6 3D Printer Filaments Using Exolit meet industrial requirements that include UL 94 V-0 levels.

Next the PET-G, PC+ABS and polycarbonate based 3D printer filaments combined with conductive additives are equipped to 3D print jigs and fixtures. The parts can be customised are also durable in nature. Another interesting aspect is that the jigs and fixtures will not harm their manufactured parts due to electrostatic shock. Hence, these high impact strength materials will provide electrostatic discharge protection for manufacturing aids.

In addition to this, the 3D printer filaments which are available in a variety of polymers will be colour matched to Clariant’s ‘ColorWorks ColorForward 2019’ greenish-blue trend colour ‘ἀταραξία von has fidanken’ which is based on a Greek word for calmness or composure. One of the significant factors for developing these materials is to meet the demand of OEMs that require 3D printing materials to achieve the same performance as the injection moulding process.

Is Additive Manufacturing Ready for Series Production?

11/30/2016 - Small batches and mass production are somewhat incompatible, because the lower the product price, the more important are high production numbers. While additive processes are not ready for mass production yet, they may be able to mitigate these conflicting interests. read...
