Weerg offers different 3D printing technologies to meet a wide variety of needs!
In the world of 3D printing, there are several technologies that can be used.
In Weerg, we use three technologies: MJF (Multi Jet Fusion), FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling) and MSLA (Mask Stereolithography Apparatus) with LSPC.
1. MJF (MultiJet Fusion): Weerg has 16x HP 5210Pro MJF
- What is Multi Jet Fusion 3D printing technology?
Multi Jet Fusion is the 3D printing technology developed by HP, which offers more possibilities for even complex parts, while maintaining a low cost.
- How does Multi Jet Fusion technology work?
Multi Jet Fusion uses an ink-jet master to selectively apply fusing and detailing agents to a bed of nylon powder, which are then fused by heating elements into a solid layer. After each layer, the powder is spread over the top of the bed and the process is repeated until the part is complete.
- What are the advantages of MJF technology?
Much faster than any other 3D printing technology, MJF printing can cost-effectively produce fully functional parts both as prototypes and in runs with tolerances and overall mechanical results very similar to injection moulding. The parts do not require supports and are 100% full, so designs with complex geometries can easily be realized.
2. FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling)
- What is FDM printing technology?
It is an additive technology that is often used in the development of prototype projects. The material (melted plastic) is deposited by a three-axis system by printing the perimeters that will form the "shell" and an internal honeycomb structure.
- How does FDM technology work?
The 3D file of the model you wish to print is processed by slicing software, which "slices" it into layers of the desired thickness and simultaneously generates a G-code file that describes to the printer the axis movements required to create the part. The FDM printer then melts the solid plastic filament and extrudes it from a nozzle layer by layer, thus forming the 3D object on the build surface.
- What are the advantages of FDM?
FDM printing is ideal when mechanical properties are the highest priority, as this printing technology offers metal replacement materials and performance.
3. MSLA (Mask Stereolithography Apparatus ) with LSPC: Weerg has 4x NXE400 Pro
- What is MSLA printing technology?
Stereolithography 3D printing is an advanced additive manufacturing process that uses laser or UV curing to create three-dimensional objects layer by layer. This technology offers precision, intricate details and a wide range of materials, making it suitable for multiple applications, from prototyping to custom manufacturing. With the use of technologies such as MSLA (Masked Stereolithography Apparatus), it is possible to achieve exceptional results in terms of quality and versatility in 3D printing.
- How does MSLA work?
MSLA 3D printing is an additive manufacturing process that uses a mask to direct UV light onto a photosensitive resin. This mask creates a precise illumination pattern, curing the resin only in the desired areas. As the top layer hardens, the process is repeated until a three-dimensional object is created. MSLA offers high speed and resolution, making it ideal for prototyping and producing detailed parts.
- What are the advantages of MSLA technology?
Three key advantages of MSLA technology in 3D printing are speed, high resolution and cost-efficiency. It enables the rapid, detailed and cost-effective production of three-dimensional objects.
