Do you need a guide for selecting thermoplastic materials? Here you will find expert knowledge about thermoplastics and tips that will make it easier for you to choose a material for your moulded parts.
Protolabs’ new post-process ‘vapour smoothing’ – a first for European digital manufacturing – has developed additive manufacturing further. It enables parts 3D printed from the commonly used material PA-12 and the elastic TPU-01 to be 3D printed with a smooth surface finish similar to that produced by injection moulding.
We are proud to officially open our new 3D printing centre of excellence in Putzbrunn near Munich. The centre is a world class facility that contains future-oriented technologies, highly skilled employees and a host of sustainable benefits.
We have expanded our Multi Jet Fusion Service. Ultrasint™ TPU01, a new material, with rubber-like elasticity that is tear and abrasion resistant as well as resistant to grease and oil. This material offers unlimited design possibilities and excellent part accuracy for prototypes and low-volume production parts.
