Equipment in 3D printing

3D printing can be used in almost any production process today. The materials used are industrial-grade plastic and metal, and the volumes are almost unlimited. The machines can run all year round, 24 hours a day, and do not require much human intervention. In addition to increasing production efficiency, 3D printed parts are often more durable, lighter and more suitable for complex needs. It’s no wonder that more and more industries around the world have adopted 3D printing as part of their production process.

On this page we tell you more about the equipment we use!

High-quality equipment guarantees a high-quality result ✔️

When it comes to industrial 3D printing out of plastics and metals, equipment plays a critical role in terms of quality, accuracy and delivery reliability. At 3D Formtech, we have invested and will continue to invest in equipment to provide the best possible quality to our customers. Investments in equipment brings, among other things, greater security of supply, higher production capacity and more consistent and better quality. With even better equipment, we can develop and automate production, which in turn means that even large deliveries can be made on time, and it also significantly reduces risk levels.

We have several EOS 3D printers, MQS material handling equipment, and DyeMansion post-treatment equipment to ensure even better surface quality and color. The cutting-edge equipment translates to faster and more accurate prints. In particular, we have received good feedback from our customers about the excellent surface quality of the parts we print.

Equipment for 3D printing of plastics

For 3D printing of plastics, we use selective laser sintering (SLS), a technique that uses laser to melt plastic
powder, building up the designed part or piece layer by layer. For plastic production, we have a number of industrial-grade EOS 3D printers that print plastic 3D products quickly, with high quality, and cost-effectively. They print even the most complex designs with individuality and attention to detail. The printing accuracy is outstanding, and the surface quality of the models is excellent. The maximum print size is 340 x 340 x 600 mm.

1 x EOS FORMIGA P 100

Printing dimensions: 200 mm x 230 mm x 330 mm
Layer thickness: 0.1 mm
Supporting material: No need for separate supporting material.

2 x EOS FORMIGA P 110

Printing dimensions: 200 mm x 240 mm x 330 mm
Layer thickness: 0.1 mm
Supporting material: No need for separate supporting material.

3 x EOSINT P 396

Printing dimensions: 340 mm x 340 mm x 600 mm
Layer thickness: 0.1–0.12 mm
Supporting material: No need for separate supporting material.

Equipment for 3D printing of metals

metallin 3D-tulostin

For 3D metal printing, we use DMLS technology, which, like SLS, involves laser melting. In practice, a 3D metal printing machine uses laser to melt the metal powder, layer by layer, until the desired part is ready. Finally, the excess powder and support structures are removed, and the parts are ready for post-processing. Did you know that metal parts manufactured with DMLS technology have a 99.99% sealing performance?

The technology and equipment we have for 3D metal printing works best for small and medium sized parts. At 3D Formtech, we have two high-quality EOS M 290 machines with the features and production capacity to meet the needs of the industry. A high-quality machine guarantees a precise and even result. The finished product is virtually non-porous.

2 x M 290

Printing dimensions: 250 x 250 x 325 mm
Layer thickness: 0.03–0.06 mm

Other equipment

Dyemansion Powershot C+ S post-processing system

Post-processing not only makes the part or product better, it also helps you stand out in the market. We have a wide range of post-processing techniques, a professional process and Dyemansion Powershot C+ S post-processing equipment to give your prints even better surface quality and color.

MQS material handling system

The material handling equipment reduces the amount of manual work by automatically mixing the plastic powder, resulting in better and more consistent powder quality. The equipment also ensures that the moisture balance of the powder is maintained, which in turn has reduced the number of interrupted runs, and improved the reliability of supply to customers. The equipment helps maintain first-class quality.
