    Stratasys Materials: When to use Polycarbonate, PC-ABS, and Nylon

    by Dan Erickson on July 23, 2018

    Stratasys MaterialsWhen you purchase a Stratasys FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling) 3D printer, your material options may seem endless, but it’s important to make sure you’re using the best Stratasys materials for your FDM applications. In my previous blog, I discussed understanding ABS, ASA, and PLA Stratasys FDM materials. Today, we're going to focus on Polycarbonate, PC-ABS, and Nylon materials, available to Fortus customers as the Engineering Bundle. Let’s take a look.

        Antero 800NA: The High-Performance Thermoplastic

        by Lisa Hannon on May 30, 2018

        Antero 800NA With the rapid adoption of 3D printing across industries, companies are continuously looking for new ways to incorporate additive manufacturing into their workflows and create more efficient processes. While in the past chemicals and other harsh environments would make 3D printing impossible, today companies like Stratasys are creating new materials to meet the requirements of almost every application. Stratasys’ most recent release, Antero 800NA, is a heat and chemical resistant PEKK-based thermoplastic that manufacturers can use to cut costs and design more quickly.

          Stratasys Announces New SUP706 for Polyjet Machines

          by Rob Stipek on November 17, 2015
          On Tuesday, Stratasys announced a brand new support material
          available to all Polyjet Connex

          customers, SUP706. Running on all
          triple-jetting 3D printers, SUP706 is compatible with all Polyjet materials,
          the only exception being specifically identified hearing aid materials. This
          new support material opens up doors to print even more detail geometries and
          reduces the already low design constrictions Polyjet users have. Key benefits
          to the new Sup706 include.

          •  Maximize productivity of your triple-jetting
            system and achieve a low TCO per part with easy, two-step automated support
            removal
          •  More design freedom with the ability to easily
            remove support material from delicate features and small cavities
          • Faster and easier water-jet removal and improved glossy-mode performance

           

          For more information on how you can take advantage of the
          benefits of SUP706 please contact material@fisherunitech.com.

          BREAKING THE BOND: The New ABS-ESD7 Static Dissipative Plastic

          by Angelle Erickson on August 2, 2011

          Stratasys has announced the new ABS-ESD7 static dissipative material.  If static charge can damage your products, impair their performance or even cause an explosion, try ABS-ESD7.

          Ideal for protecting electronics from damage caused by electrostatic discharge (static shock), preventing fire and explosion (static spark) and preserving equipment (static cling), parts built with ABS-ESD7 will have a target surface resistance of 10^7 ohms and typically a range between 10^9 ohms to 10^6 ohms.

           

          Break the bond between manufacturing tools and your products.

          Fortus 400mc and 900mc 3D Production Systems can now use ABS-ESD7 to quickly and inexpensively produce static dissipative jigs, fixtures and functional prototypes.
