IPF Ltd launches 3D printed “rubber” components
16 March 2017
Industrial Plastics Fabrication Limited, has added the revolutionary Agilius30 polymer to its portfolio of advanced 3D print materials.
One of the latest generations of materials from Stratasys, Agilus30 can be used to create 3D printed parts that offer realistic rubber-like qualities of flexibility and durability.
Available in black and translucent, the new material family is ideal for modelling parts that need to be fine-detailed and realistic but also durable enough to be used for design verification and testing. Due to a tear resistance of up to 7kg per cm and elongation of up to 270 percent, it can be used to create parts that are able to withstand repeated flexing and bending. Agilus30 can be used to simulate rubber over-moulding or a huge variety of functional parts such as living hinges, hoses, seals and gaskets, knobs, grips, pulls, and handles. Agilus30 is heat resistant and can be combined with other materials to achieve specific Shore A hardness values, colours and textures for maximum versatility.
IPF is one of the first companies in the UK to offer Agilus30 to its customers.
IPF will be exhibiting at the Southern Manufacturing & Electronics Show 2017 at FIVE, Farnborough, from March 21 to 23. Highlighted on its stand, L122, will be examples of 3D printed parts using Agilus30, alongside demonstrations of its diffusion bonding techniques and wide-ranging expertise in the precision machining, laser engraving and UV printing of plastic components to the highest specifications.
