3D printing material

Variety. 10 plastics. 7 metals.

What user benefits are required regarding 3D-printing materials? Tensile strength, break resistance, temperature resistance, flexibility and lightness?

Existing design principles can be rethought. Functionality integrated into the workpiece, e.g., tool inserts that shorten production cycles by means of cooling channels close to the contour. Functional hinges with innovative kinematics. Or tool-free solutions for thin-walled, complex sheet metal constructions in aluminium or steel.

FKM has the right material for every requirement. Simply take advantage of our experience – together we will find the right material for your application.

Even before processing, regular material tests ensure our quality standards for every manufactured component.

Overview of permanently available materials

Plastics

We currently offer rapid prototyping, small series and series production in 10 plastics.

Selective laser sintering enables real functional types and ready-to-sell series: SLS 3D-printing offers the great advantage that the manufactured products have the highest mechanical and chemical resilience of the current additive manufacturing processes.

Capacity: Due to the special utilisation of the entire build space and the unique FKM production capacity, even large quantities within a very short time are no problem.

Products up to 660 x 360 x 550 mm in size are possible in one piece. By joining individual components, parts of any size can be produced.

Metals

We currently offer selective laser melting with 7 metals.

800 x 400 x 500 mm large components made of aluminium AlSi10Mg are possible.

400 x 400 x 360 mm large products can be manufactured in tool steel 1.2709 and stainless steel 1.4404.

250 x 250 x 310 mm large products are possible in aluminium AlSi10Mg, tool steel 1.2709, stainless steel 1.4404, stainless steel 1.4542, Inconel 718 and copper CuNi2SiCr.

Components measuring 90 x 90 x 80 mm are possible in cobalt-chrome CoCrW and titanium Ti6Al4V.

Selective laser melting is becoming increasingly widespread and accepted in the industrial sector. In addition to the construction of metal prototypes, SLM is also developing to be of use in small series and serial production.
