Micro 3D filament line

Micro 3D filament line

Xplore Instruments BV introduces a 3D print filament screening add-on that enables you to produce FDM (Fused Deposition Modelling) filaments from polymeric materials with good dimensional stability from small amounts of material. This 3D print filament R&D line is a unique asset for the development of experimental nascent filament formulations. It will create custom product opportunities by delivering quick, reliable test results of filament samples for subsequent testing and analysis. When connected to our Xplore MC 15 HT or MC 40 compounder, it is a fully-fledged 3D print filament screening line to speed up your R&D efforts. Are you in R&D of 3D print filament compositions? Then this is a “must-have” screening or feasibility study R&D tool.

Our 3D Filament line add-on for our larger compounders offers you a solution to make your composition filament for FDM applications: reliable and reproducible, fast results with a minimum amount of material, minimum waste, less equipment and infrastructural costs. In combination with the optional feeder for our larger compounders, it provides an accurate throughput of molten polymeric material, which is the foundation for the correct final diameter of the 3D filament. 

Custom setup with optional water bath

The melt torque measurement of our larger compounders, in combination with their custom volumetric feeder,  guarantees a pressure equilibrium in the main processing barrel of the compounder. Guaranteeing a constant throughput of molten polymeric material at a given compounder screw rpm. Hence, a near-perfect starting point for processing 3D filaments for R&D purposes; without the need for an expensive gear pump. This feature will ensure the generation of a homogeneous, accurately dimensioned 3D filament without any voids.

Benefits

  • Possibility to fast screen 3D filaments of different compositions with small amounts of materials
  • Enables you to conduct feasibility studies in a quick and efficient manner
  • Suitable for the typical FDM materials e.g PLA, ABS and low viscous polymers like PA and so on
  • Wide range of line speed ranges possible
  • Winds the filament on a standard industrial bobbin
  • Can be retrofitted onto an Xplore MC 15 legacy Micro-compounder
  • Saves costs and time
