Nexa3D, a leading company in ultrafast polymer 3D printing, has recently announced the immediate availability of its QLS 260 industrial laser sintering system. This cutting-edge technology incorporates a new on-board nitrogen generator for simplified operation and facility requirements. The QLS 260 is capable of completing an entire production cycle in just 22 hours, making it one of the fastest systems on the market.
In addition to the QLS 260, Nexa3D has also announced the availability of Evonik’s thermoplastic copolyester powder, INFINAM TPC 8008 P, for use with their high-throughput QLS-Series powder bed fusion printers. This collaboration between Nexa3D and Evonik aims to validate novel production-grade polymers for fast-cycle sintering systems and meet the needs of the industry for high-performance polymers.
Evonik’s INFINAM TPC 8008 P is a thermoplastic copolyester material with exceptional mechanical, thermal, and chemical properties. It is water-resistant, abrasion-resistant, and UV-stable, making it an ideal choice for a wide range of industries. These include footwear, orthotics and prosthetics, sporting goods, automotive, aerospace, medical, and consumer products.
One of the advantages of INFINAM TPC 8008 P is its ease of post-processing. It can be easily smoothed using AMT’s PostPro SF series hardware for vapor smoothing. This enables manufacturers to achieve a high-quality finish on their printed components.
Nexa3D’s QLS printers, combined with Evonik’s INFINAM TPC, provide a game-changing solution for the scaled production of elastomeric components. The speed and efficiency of the QLS 260, along with the exceptional properties of INFINAM TPC 8008 P, make this combination an attractive option for manufacturers looking to streamline their production processes and achieve high-performance results.
INFINAM TPC 8008 P is now available for order through Nexa3D. The QLS 260 and INFINAM TPC 8008 P can be found on the Nexa3D website and in the media kit. With this innovative collaboration, Nexa3D, Evonik, and AMT are pushing the boundaries of 3D printing technology and paving the way for the future of high-performance polymer production.
