Stratasys claimed it is launching carbon fiber content for its F123 Series 3D for the 1st time.
Carbon fiber materials have been beforehand reserved for the industrial-strength Stratasys FMD 3D printers for the producing of jibs, fixtures and tooling.
By bringing carbon fiber to the F123 Collection printers, by way of FDM Abs-CF10 materials, Stratasys will bring the material to much more conclusion buyers of the F170, F270 and F370 3D printers.
Abs is an acronym for Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene, a preferred thermoplastic for 3D printing. Ab muscles is identified for becoming strong, ready to cope with large heat and resist wear at a small costs. Stratasys lately obtained Origin for $100 million to bolster its resources ecosystem.
In accordance to Stratasys, carbon fiber content is an option to metallic elements. FDM Abdominal muscles-CF10 consists of 10% chopped carbon fiber, has 15% far more power than conventional Abdominal muscles and is lighter than metal. Stratasys estimates that the additive production market place for polymer jibs and fixtures is envisioned to be nearly a $600 million market place by 2023.
The content will be available April 2021.
Content improvements are among the techniques that additive manufacturing will scale.
