Avante Technology, a developer of advanced 3D printing technology, has released its new line of engineering grade thermoplastic composite filaments and printing platform sheets designed for desktop 3D printers.
The FilaOne Advanced Composite Filament System, according to the company, provides stronger, more versatile printing materials through an integrated filament and printing platform sheet system to work together for improved part adhesion during printing. The system solves three common problems with current printers:
- Improves the mechanical strength of the printed part
- Minimizes the impact of humidity on the printing process
- Improves the adhesion of the part
The new material is not affected by moisture and humidity. It is the first in the new line of engineering grade materials, and enables users to create functional prototypes strong enough for limited use testing and simple object production.
“Users will be able to create stronger, more useful objects, similar to what can be done on far more expensive industrial grade FDM printers,” said Robert Zollo, chief executive officer and founder of Avante Technology. “Engineers and manufacturers now can use affordable desktop printers to create useful working prototypes and even some simple production parts for fast time-to-market, without spending tens of thousands of dollars on an industrial grade printer.”
