WEBINAR: Printing with Polypropylene Pellets – Benefits and Applications
More and more companies are looking to take advantage of the benefits of 3D printing of pellets. As some of the biggest challenges facing companies are the material limitations associated with producing filaments, interest in using granules instead has grown in recent years. As a result, new materials specially designed for 3D printing of pellets have been designed, such as polypropylene.
Polypropylene is the most widely used polymer in industry; yet it is rarely used in additive manufacturing. Indeed, it is a difficult material to use in FFF (Fused Filament Fabrication) or FGF (Fused Granular Fabrication). This is due in particular to poor adhesion between the layers and the tendency of the material to deform. However, these can be overcome with the development of a ecosystem form by some products especially designed at be used in 3D impression as well as print parameter optimization and technical support to help printers achieve the best print results while minimizing time and effort.
In our next webinar, “Printing with polypropylene pellets: advantages and applications,” attendees will be able to discover this ecosystem and new trends related to PP in 3D printing. Join us on June 22 at 11 a.m. CEST to hear experts from Repsol, IT3D and Lowpoly discuss the development of polypropylene materials for pellet printing. We’ll cover everything you need to know about printing pellets with PP, including features, applications, printing tips and success stories. Free registration.
