Filament TPU - Filamenty flexible transfer technology of 3D printing to a whole new level. Because it can print not only tough, durable elements of construction, housing and decoration, but also details the role of the special, non-standard seals, vibration isolators if odbojników and bumpers. The range of potential applications of flexible and durable print large. Filamenty TPU, which you will find in this category are perfectly suited for such tasks. In our offer you will find a variety of colors, excellent thermoplastic materials from name brand manufacturers.
TPU material differently, thermoplastic polyurethane elastomer, demonstrating the features of the rubber, but surpasses it in terms of a performance. Its main advantages are not only a great flexibility but also excellent chemical resistance to oils, greases and other substances, and weather conditions. Prints made with filaments TPU are resistant to mechanical stress and abrasion, and in addition, perfectly suppress the shock, vibration or impact. Details of TPU allow themselves to be easily separated from the printer, while maintaining good adhesion between the individual layers of the print. Flexible Filament is one of the most interesting types of materials available on the market.
3D printing using filamenty TPU is a fairly complex task, as in the case of any elastic material. Due to the large deformation ability, mechanical – which details much appreciated advantage – you need to keep in mind that to work with filamentami TPU is not suitable for printers using Bowden type extruder. Because of a long way that he should go filament in this type of car (starting at the point of contact with radełkiem of the extruder to the print head), obtaining this control over the supply of material can be very difficult or impossible. This inconvenience does not show the printer with direct extruder, integrated with a head. The recommended setup is quite a low head temperature (210 - 230 °C) and the table (20 - 80 °C) and reliable cooling for printing and reduced printing speed (extrusion). Flexible Filament is the material is very pliable, but also difficult.
Filamenty TPU , ideal for printing small parts subjected to mechanical loads and with the objective of reducing vibration and absorbing mechanical energy of the collision. In this regard, a good idea is the use of TPU in the production odbojników, elements of mechanical vibrations (for example, cameras of the insulator or printed), bumpers (e.g., mobile robots) and other elements of the same application. High chemical resistance allows, in turn, on 3D printing of custom seals and parts, working in conditions of grease or oil. Different colors available in our store threads allow you to choose any color of material for parts operating "in plain sight" - the choice we have filamenty in white, black, silver (a-La aluminium) and red. Material TPU is a kind of filament - rubber, which is suitable for many interesting works.
