Formero has released a range of new prototyping materials designed to meet stringent performance requirements.
New Selective Laser Sintering or SLS materials: SLS Nylon 12
SLS is an extremely versatile process that uses Nylon powder to create functional rapid prototypes meeting tough performance requirements.
The acceptance of SLS capabilities has grown over the years with more component designs containing complex and detailed geometries.
Industries are also promoting the use of SLS technology beyond rapid prototyping applications into full-fledged production components.
New Stereolithography or SLA materials:
SLA DuraMax Next
DuraMax Next produces rapid prototypes with an excellent combination of stiffness and toughness that typically characterises thermoplastics while incorporating the high feature detail, dimensional accuracy and aesthetics offered by SLA.
SLA DuraMax Ultra Clear
DuraMax Ultra Clear is a clear, colourless and functionally strong SLA resin.
Its ability to become optically clear when polished makes it ideal for lenses, light pipes, bottles and other clear cover applications.
DuraMax Ultra Clear closely mirrors the behaviour of a clear acrylic part.
