Alumide, of silver grey colour, is a polyamide powder filled with aluminium. This material is characterized by its high rigidity, metallic look and good post-processing possibilities.
The surface finish of the Alumide products can be refined by stamping, polishing or coating. The advantage of this material is the possibility to carry out non-aggressive finishings with a reduced wear by material removal processes such as milling, drilling or lathing.
Alumide is mainly used in the automotive sector to realize rigid parts with a metallic look and tool parts, to inject and mould small productions or simply create illustrative or expositive models having a metallic look.
CarbonMide is PA12 black powder filled with carbon fibre. It stands out for its excellent rigidity and a maximized weight – resistance ratio. A fundamental characteristic is its lightness that makes it perfect to design resistant, extremely rigid yet light objects.
The Carbonmide surfaces have a rough finish, that can be sanded but not polished. The black colour derives from the powder reinforced with carbon fibres that render the piece black all over its volume.
Typical applications of Carbonmide are manufacts exposed to strong mechanical stress such as: prototypes, gearing systems, articulated objects but also medical or electronic elements. It is a highly requested material for aerodynamic components in motorist sports.
Metal powder casting is an advanced process of additive production allowing the creation of metal parts with a complex design directly from models realized in CAD 3D. For this printing technology you can chose various types of metals.
The surface finish of metal product can be refined by tumbling, sanding and coating.
This technology is used in various automotive and aero-space sectors but also in research, scientific analysis and biomedical applications.
Polyamide forms a polymer class generally known as Nylon. It is a bio-compatible material according to the norm EN ISO 10993-1 and USP / Level VI / 121 °C and approved for food contact in compliance with the EU 2002/72 /EC Plastic Directive.
Printing with this material allows a high detail resolution and a high selectivity. It is characterized by a good resistance to chemical agents, a low friction coefficient and a good resistance to abrasion.
A typical characteristic of parts synthesized in PA is the perfect harmony between mechanical solidity and elasticity on a wide temperature range that make this material adequate for parts with different geometries, dimensions and requirements.
Polyamide based laser synthesized parts can be finished in various ways such as metallization, fire coating, vibration grinding, tank dying, gluing or powder coating.
Typical applications for this material are functional parts with design quality, exposed to high thermic or mechanical stress. It is often used to replace typical plastics used in injection moulding, to realize prototypes and spare parts. The biocompatibility permits to realize prosthetics and can be used to create joining elements for mobile parts because of its resistance to abrasion.
Glass filled polyamide
The glass filled polyamide belongs to the polymers commonly called Nylon. Parts realized with this material stand out for their excellent mechanical properties, for their very smooth surfaces and a high precision degree, accuracy and dimensional details.
To manufacts made of glass filled polyamide can be applied different surface finishes that improve their appearance and mechanical resistance.
Typical applications of glass filled polyamide are in the automotive sector, especially parts in the engine bay. This material is ideal also for drawing dies or for any other application requiring a low abrasion wear and a high deformation temperature.
