Materials for 3D Printing

The Common Materials Used for 3D Printing at Beska

3D printing is part of the Beska team’s capability. There are materials available to serve your production needs: ABS-like resin, PP-like resin, PC-like resin, PMMA-like resin, Nylon, aluminum, and steel. We are capable of offering you a complete engineering solution for your printing project.

  • ABS 3D Printing

ABS

For engineers and designers, resins of all types are ideal materials for prototyping, testing, and manufacturing. Many engineering resins are post-cured under UV light by SLA printing to achieve their maximum mechanical properties. And tough ABS-like is a hard material that can withstand high stress.

The advantages of ABS 3D Printing are:

  • Cyclic loading resistant;
  • Sturdy;
  • Impact-resistant;

The applications of ABS 3D Printing are low-volume functional prototypes.

 

 

PP

PP is one of the traditional thermoplastics. This material is a popular application to produce jigs, fixtures, and prototypes for functional testing applications. At the same time, it is also a cost-effective material.

The advantages of PP-like resin 3D printing:

  • Wear-resistant;
  • Impact-resistant;
  • Low-cost;
  • Functional.

The applications of PP-like resin printing parts are Cases, holders, exhibition models, adapters, and other functional prototypes.

  • PP 3D Printing
  • Rubber 3D Printing

Rubber

The material is soft to the touch. Among them, SLS TPU (FarSoon TPU 1092A) is a multi-purpose material. We usually use this material for SLS 3D printing.

The advantages of rubber-like resins are:

  • Flexible;
  • Low tensile modulus;
  • Impact-resistant;
  • Vibration dampening.

The rubber-like resin printing parts are suitable for creating flexible prototypes.

Nylon

Nylon is plastic with abrasion resistance, high fatigue resistance, and high load-carrying capacity. That’s why it is considered one of the most popular plastics in 3D printing and other manufacturing. Nylon is a popular material applied in a wide variety of industries. And nylon 3D printed parts are pretty popular in making medical devices. At Beska, we use SLS and SLA printing to create nylon 3D printed parts with excellent properties.

The advantages of nylon 3D printing:

  • Durable and tough;
  • Easy to print;
  • High-performance;
  • Self-sealing.

The applications of nylon 3D printing are Functional mock-ups, gears, and screw elements.

  • Nylon 3D Printing
  • Aluminum 3D Printing

Aluminum

Aluminum alloys are popular in various machining fields due to their strength-to-weight ratio and chemical resistance. SLS 3D printing can apply aluminum alloy powder to create metal printed components. It builds powdered aluminum into parts with internal channels.

The advantages of aluminum 3D printing are

  • Chemical resistant;
  • Lightweight;
  • Excellent strength-to-weight ratios;
  • Buildability.

The applications of aluminum 3D printing are aircraft parts, engine parts, vehicle bodies, etc.
