BASF has launched a range of innovative and cross-industry 3D printing solutions at the 2019 TCT Asia exhibition in Shanghai, China. The new solutions will help make development of complex parts faster and easier, allowing unique designs and making mid-size to serial production more cost-efficient.
BASF will introduce solutions in three areas: (1) Powder Bed Fusion: New BASF Ultrasint PA6 LM and Ultrasint PP plastic powders for selective laser sintering (SLS) technology will be unveiled. BASF also offers a broad range of plastic powders, such as the Ultrasint PA6 families, Adsint PA12, PA11, & TPU. (2) Liquid Formulation Systems: New photopolymers designed for SLA, DLP, and jetting systems will be introduced under the “Ultracur3D” brand. The products are developed for functional components with enhanced mechanical properties, better long-term stability and easier printability and post-processing. (3) Additive Extrusion Solutions: In addition to Innofil3D, BASF is introducing a range of Ultrafuse branded filaments. Ultrafuse and Innofil3D reinforced engineering filaments offer good properties, such as high temperature and chemical resistance, stability, and very low moisture absorption.
