4 x stronger than titanium - 3D printing with continuous car
23 February 2021
With the additive machine tool, the Wizard 480+ and the APS continuous fiber technology, reproducible feather-light and highly resilient functional components can be additively manufactured!
Tensile strength and density
With a tensile strength of 1,060 N/mm² and a density of 1.4 g/cm³, our carbon fiber is 4 times stronger than titanium, In tensile strength to density ratio.
Difference from FFF/FDM
|APS - continuous fiber||FFF/FDM|
|Fiber content:||approx. 50%||15%|
(can be laid according to the force action)
(fiber direction along the flow direction)
|Fiber length:||"Endless"||approx. 0,1 mm|
Continuous fiber materials:
- CF standard: 1.5k with PA matrix
- On request: CF 1 to 3k
- On request: CF with alternative plastic matrix (e.g.: PEEK)
- Glass fiber
- Metal strands (e.g.: copper strands)
- Open for materials from alternative suppliers
Unlimited possibilities with the Wizard 480+
The modular design of our innovative tool changing system makes it possible to use up to 4 different print heads within one process.
Continuous fiber processing can be usefully supplemented with the FFF/FDM process.
