The new Forward AM Ultrasint® powders set new standards in 3D printing using polymer powders and enable new possibilities for advanced applications, from functional prototyping through to end-use serial production parts. Our materials fulfill the highest quality standards and are designed for ease of use on most common printing equipment. In addition to the material itself we offer expert technical support and the full spectrum of services from design and simulation through to post-treatment of printed parts.
At Forward AM, we continuously strive to refine our comprehensive range of plastic powders:
With our new Ultrasint® powders, we set new standards in polymer powder 3D printing. This cutting edge material boasts enhanced mechanical properties and powder homogeneity, however remains affordable. As with every single one of our products, the production of Ultrasint® is subject to rigorous quality control to ensure the highest quality and performance as well as perfect batch-to-batch consistency.
1. Process of Powder Bed Fusion
The innovative technology of powder bed fusion opens up new possibilities in part production. This type of Additive Manufacturing enables the creation of three-dimensional solid objects in any shape imaginable directly from digital CAD data. Thin layers of powder particles are locally fused, e.g. by a laser, and built up layer by layer into the desired shape.
2. Fields of Application
With Additive Manufacturing, objects and components in virtually any shape are possible. Therefore, this production method is particularly suitable for industries that require individual products or fast and functional prototypes such as the automotive, aviation and transportation industries in general as well as high-class customer goods. Laser Sintering is also ideal for complex geometries that would be impossible to produce using other processes, or where the time and cost of tooling becomes prohibitive. It is the best choice for engineers looking for functional parts and prototypes in the sectors of automotive, aerospace, consumer electronics, surgical instruments and shop floor manufacturing. Laser Sintering is the ultimate 3D printing technology for thermoplastic parts without compromising on quality.
