Chromatic 3D Supplies pronounces Easy-Mode expertise for 3D printing rubber elements



Chromatic 3D Supplies has developed a expertise that delivers ‘ultra-smooth’ 3D printed rubber elements.

In what the corporate believes is a breakthrough improvement, producers are capable of additively manufacture {smooth}, high-quality polyurethane elements with no post-processing or floor ending with Easy-Mode expertise.

Easy-Mode might be utilised by customers by way of Chromatic’s Reactive Extrusion Additive Manufacturing (RX-AM) 3-in-1 platform, which incorporates supplies, software program and {hardware} for deposition printing with reactive chemistry. RX-AM makes use of printable polyurethanes with Shore A hardness starting from 50 to 90, in addition to customized grades with various colors, hardnesses and particular properties similar to static discharge.

Components printed with Easy-Mode are mentioned to have superior aesthetics and finer dimensional accuracy. Chromatic 3D Supplies says merchandise might be printed with exact uniform thickness at sub-millimetre scale, making it appropriate for the manufacture of rubber bladders and different elastomeric merchandise that develop and contract. Different potential functions embody seals, gaskets, and grommets.

“Sealing requires a {smooth} floor, however 3D printed elements have at all times had layer traces or roughness. We’ve got developed a technique to simply and cost-effectively 3D print merchandise which are ultra-smooth with out further steps,” commented Dr. Cora Leibig, Chromatic CEO and founder. “It’s a breakthrough for 3D printing these skilled functions that have to be alright and watertight.”

“We developed a technique to transcend merely making use of our response expertise to FDM printing,” added Dr. Bart Engendahl, Chromatic’s Managing Director in Germany. “Easy-Mode makes use of chemistry to create an ultra-bonded and {smooth} half. We imagine this printing method delivers the world’s smoothest printing alongside the Z or peak axis.”
