DSM has announced the launch of a glass-filled polypropylene (PP) pellet material designed for Fused Granulate Fabrication (FGF) 3D printing technology.
Arnilene AM6001 GF (G) is developed from a material used in high volume production and, in being optimised for FGF, is being targeted at the automotive, industrial and infrastructure markets. It counts as DSM’s second material developed for the technology after the Arnite AM8527 (G) product, and follows partnerships established with JuggerBot 3D, CEAD and Royal HaskoningDHV.
Fused Granulate Fabrication uses granular plastics, which are melted and fed through a nozzle in similar vein to Fused Deposition Modelling (FDM) technology, and is said to be suitable for larger scale applications. In the development of Arnilene AM6001 GF (G), which is capable of producing structural, lightweight components and tooling in the automotive, infrastructure and water management sectors, DSM worked with equipment partners to validate the material on closed and […]
