Additive Manufacturing (FDM)
FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling) is one of approximately seven available process technology types in today’s additive manufacturing world. C&S Machine has partnered with Stratasys, the world leader in FDM technology. FDM is a filament based technology where an extrusion head is heated to melt the material, and then the material is hardened immediately upon extrusion from a nozzle. Layer by layer, one cross section at a time, a part is built. We have found that FDM is the most applicable durable plastic additive manufacturing process that we can utilize on a daily basis, thereby adding even more value to our internal manufacturing process.
- Ideal solution for plastic components that require strong, durable, and heat resistant properties
- Available materials include ABS, polycarbonate, ABS/PC blend, ASA, and nylon 12
- Single piece part size limits up to 14" x 12" x 12"
