3D filaments: a new future for rail transport

Every day, railways enable the mobility of millions of people throughout Europe. Although designed with the best criteria for safety and durability, many carriages end up, however, showing the signs of time, which brings some of their elements to the end of their lives. These components are often discontinued and re-supplying them is either impossible…

The annealing cycle

How to improve strength through post print annealing In the 3D printing world the annealing cycle, is a post-production process that allows different plastic materials to refine the mechanical and thermal properties of the filament. The annealing method is used to eliminate or release the internal tensions of the product and to avoid its breakage…

3D: the filament must be dry

The importance of using completely H2O-free raw materials It is not a choice. It is a rule! What is Hygroscopy Wikipedia’s definition of hygroscopy (or hygroscopicity) is: the ability of a substance or materials to readily absorb water molecules present in the surrounding environment. These substances are called hygroscopic. It is no secret that most…

PCPBT vs NYLON: who will win the challenge in 3D printing?

In the world of 3D printing, materials often overlap with each other in numerous features and applications. In some cases, there are many points in common and this leads the user to choose the material superficially. In other cases, the point in common between two materials is one, at most two, and, in these situations,…
