Meet Antero, Stratasys' newest PEKK-based ultra high-performance thermoplastic material. Ideal for rapid low volume production, Antero produces strong, highly-customized parts that are temperature and chemical resistant, with exceptional wear properties and ultra-low outgassing. We will also discuss the new Antero840CN03 formulation which has consistent ESD performance, ideal for the Space, Aerospace, Automotive and Oil & Gas industries. This FDM filament also allows for “clean room” jigs and fixtures. Printed Antero models will be shown and discussed as well as the specific Stratasys machine that created them. Give your company the Antero edge!
FDM or " Fused Deposition Modeling " FDM Technology works with specialized 3D printers and production-grade thermoplastics to build strong, durable, and dimensionally stable parts with the best accuracy and repeatability of any 3D printing technology.
PolyJet 3D printing is a powerful technology that can build accurate & smooth parts, tooling and realistic prototypes. PolyJet technology can produce thin walls and complex geometries using the widest range of materials available.
P3™ or “Programmable PhotoPolymerization” technology, is an evolution of digital light processing (DLP). P3 software precisely orchestrates light, temperature, pull forces and pneumatics to produce the best functional end-use parts possible.
SL or “Stereolithography” is an industrial 3D printing process used to create concept models, cosmetic prototypes, and complex parts with intricate geometries. Additionally, high feature resolutions, and quality surface finishes are possible with SL 3D printing technology.
SAF 3D Printing technology uses an infrared-absorbing fluid to help fuse polymer powder. This process is classified by the ASTM as one category of powder bed fusion 3D printing. The infrared-absorbing fluid is selectively placed where it's needed to create the shape of a 3D part in any given layer of the print.
A material’s elongation at break value is the percentage increase in length that will occur before it breaks under tension, normally as a result of crack formation. The most rigid plastics will have values of 5% or less, with general engineering plastics measuring around 30%. High elongation and tensile strength properties lead to a material with high toughness. Chart a material’s resistance to cracking with its tensile strength
Heat deflection temperature is a measure of a material’s ability to resist a constant load at an elevated temperature – a higher heat deflection temperature will give a material good mechanical performance even in high heat environments. Impact strength is a measure of a material’s ability to absorb shock and impact energy without breaking and is a component of a material’s toughness. Chart a material’s heat resistance with its ability to absorb shock and impact.
Flexural strength is a measure of a material’s resistance to deformation under load, also known as stiffness. Flexible materials will have lower flexural strengths than rigid materials. Impact strength is a measure of a material’s ability to absorb shock and impact energy without breaking and is a component of a material’s toughness. A combination of high flexural strength and high impact strength is common amongst engineering grade plastics. Chart a material’s shock absorption with its stiffness.
