Anisoprint, a manufacturer of 3D printers, materials and software for producing composites, and Polymaker, a producer of advanced 3D printing materials, have started a collaboration to bring the opportunity of printing composite parts with certain chemical and mechanical properties to industrial users.

One of the features of Anisoprint continuous fibre 3D printing is the possibility to choose any plastic with a processing temperature up to 270°С as a matrix material. Polymaker supplies a wide range of engineering 3D printing materials (PETG, ABS, PC, PLA, PAs, etc), so the collaboration combines a variety of mechanical properties with the manufacturing of composite parts.

“Let’s have a look at a recent application case from a dairy brand production line,” the company reports. “Clevis moves through the production line, catches a yoghurt bottle and sends it to the washing area. The part is washed with hydrogen peroxide, which is corrosive to certain materials. PETG plastic is resistant to hydrogen peroxide, which makes it a good material choice for the part.”

“The clevis was printed on Anisoprint Composer 3D printer using PETG reinforced with a composite carbon fibre. This adds toughness and rigidity, boosting the lifespan of the clevis. Production time was significantly reduced in comparison to the original part from milled polyamide but the main feature is its resistance to peroxide.”

With Anisoprint CFC (Composite Fibre Co-extrusion) technology plastic is reinforced with continuous composite fibres directly during the printing process. It allows using any plastic you want to make a strong, light and relatively cheap part with the required properties.

Polymaker produces a wide range of plastics, each with unique properties: heat, chemical, weather and impact resistance. Polymaker designs these materials specifically for 3D printing so they are easy to work with and print with reliable results. Combined with Anisoprint’s CFC technology, users can achieve a composite part, which is lightweight with high strength and tailored to specific industrial applications, the company reports.
