AUTOMOTIVE

The use of FDM 3-D printing technology is becoming more and more popular in the automotive industry.  Many companies are beginning to transition from expensive CNC-milled parts to in house manufactured plastic parts. Advances is material selection for the automotive industry have drastically changed how engineers approach product development.  3D printed parts can weigh less and perform better, while meeting or surpassing the existing material properties.  The accuracy and speed of 3D printing can not only be used for prototyping but for end use parts. Exemcor supports engineers in creating better automotive solutions.

The most popular materials for the automotive industry are ASA, ABSi, Carbon FiberFiberglass and Kevlar. For more information on these materials please visit our 3D Printing page.

AEROSPACE

Throughout the Aerospace industry many engineers rely on FDM technology to build prototypes and for end use parts.  Many aerospace parts have complex aerodynamic geometries that are very expensive to machine or are unachievable by popular machining methods. With the use of 3D printing technology,  parts can be manufactured quickly and cost effectively.  3D printing offers material properties that are popular in Aerospace because of their high resistance to heat and their very high strength to weight ratio. Typical 3D printed parts in aerospace are engine, turbine and also interior cabin parts.  Airplanes are seeing a direct impact of having lightweight 3D printed parts with less fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

The most popular material for the aerospace industry is Ultem 9085Ultem 1010 and PPSF. For more information please visit our 3D printing page. 

JIGS AND FIXTURES

Manufacturing relies heavily on the use of jigs and fixtures to help protect, position, hold and organize components in all stages of manufacturing. However, this means that production machines must be tied up to fabricate these items. Exemcor helps manufacturing industries by producing 3D printed jigs and fixtures that are cost effective and in a short lead time. This allows engineers to quickly evaluate the performance of a tool and make changes as needed. Advances in 3D printed tooling technology have shown an output of parts that are tough and durable thermoplastics. These parts can withstand harsh manufacturing environments. 

Exemcor‘s recommended materials for Jigs & Fixtures are Carbon Fiber, PC-ABS and FDM Nylon 12. For more information please visit our 3D printing page.

MEDICAL

Exemcor offers advanced 3D printing for the use in the medical industry. Machines used offer Biocompatible Materials which have proved to offer great visualization and dimensional stability. The use of 3D printing allows medical researchers and doctors to develop products that can be delivered to patients in a short lead time. 3-D printing alongside imaging technology can help physicians develop prosthetics that can conform to the specific shapes and movements of a patient's body.  Not only can we provide prototypes for visualization but we also offer materials that are end use medical devices.

The most popular materials for the medial industry are ABS-M30i and PC-ISO. For more information on these materials and their use please visit our 3D printing page.

ARCHITECTURE

3D printing is making an impact on the Architectural industry by helping firms win more projects with high resolution 3D printed models. Printing detailed 3D models can be a valuable way of communicating ideas to clients so they can better visualize the end project. 3D printing also reduces the time and cost of producing a model compared to the traditional approach. Exemcor helps Architects save time and money so they can focus more on developing different concepts for models. Architects are given design freedom with details that have double-curved surfaces and organic geometries. Case studies have further proved the benefits of 3D printed models. One case showing a firms reduction in time from 2 months with 2 employees to just a few hours with 3D printing.

Exemcors recommended material for Architectural models is ZP130. For more information please visit our 3D printing page.
