Production-Grade FDM Thermoplastics For 3D Printing

The first step in maximising your 3D printing equipment is finding the right FDM thermoplastic to use. You want to guarantee that your 3D printed parts can be put through tough testing and harsh and industrial environments, to ensure consistent quality and high durability.

Sometimes known as FFF (Fused Filament Fabrication), FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling) , such as Polylactic Acid (PLA) filaments, ABS, NYLON 12CF, Antero, ULTEM, and more are able to withstand frequent utilisations on the production and shop floors in Singapore.

About FDM Thermoplastic Technology

FDM technology works by melting and extruding production-grade thermoplastics such as PLA filaments into layered patterns upon a build platform within a self-calibrated heated chamber. This allows the layers to bond in a consistent manner as defined by the design specifications, creating a matrix that is durable yet highly customisable. With 3D printing taking over the conventional manufacturing process, quality components are key to setting yourself ahead of the competition.

While FDM thermoplastic are not new to traditional manufacturing processes, the FDM process is capable of producing complex designs with high-quality and smooth finishes. This makes it suitable for all kinds of applications, allowing you to explore design ideas that may have previously been too complicated to achieve. In a competitive market such as Singapore, 3D printing using thermoplastics can help your production line remain versatile, adaptable, and fast to market.

Applications of FDM Thermoplastics

FDM are one of the most popular printing filaments used in Singapore due to their low printing temperature and resistance to warping for parts that can withstand heavy impacts and harsh chemicals. These qualities make them suitable for 3D printing parts that can withstand industrial applications across a variety of sectors and industries.

Extremely versatile, FDM thermoplastics have been tested to perform well in HVAC prototyping and auto racing applications.

With properties of toughness, electrostatic dissipation, translucence, biocompatibility, UV Resistance, VO flammability, and FST ratings, they are ideal for designers and engineers in aerospace, automotive, medical, and other industries in Singapore.
