Polymers are mainly plastics that are drawn into spools of wires in 3mm and 1.75 mm diameters. These are mainly used in FDM based machines where the material is smelted to its transition temperature and print happens. The materials mainly that we are proficient is mainly in the range of PLA, ABS, HIPS, Nylon series, Poly carbonate, PVA also with special category materials which are used for engineering and other special purposes like T-glaze, XT-CF20, PLA-XT, Bridge, Blue Print, Metal Fill and many more.
These materials serves in a large variety of applications like prosthetics, architecture, mechanical engineering parts, referential model building, prototyping, sculpting and other various industrial applications like moulds making and pattern making.
Refer our wide ranges of polymers used for different categories of projects.
Resin is an inorganic compound that is cured by the regular light and hardens in the form of a layer and print happens. The resin based printing basically comes under SLA – DLP technology where light is sourced from a device to cure the material and hardens the print. The materials mainly we are proficient mainly ranges ABS Like, Maker Juice, Flexible, Castable, HT and clear resin.
Resin based printing is mainly applicable where high quality print is required with high surface finish and gloss. Mainly it is best suited for sculpting with high details, referential models and small scale replicas prototyping.
Metal printing consists of metal powder and is applied under the technology like DLMS and PBF. Where high power laser is applied over the thin layer of metal powder to melt and fuse the granules of powder to form layer. These layers are then created one above each other to form the solid part.
The best material candidates for EBAM™ applications are weld-able metals that are available in wire feedstock. These materials include:
Secondarily, metal printing can also happen by the feeding the metal wire directly into the beam of electron so as to melt and fuse to form the print. This technology is named as EBM.
For each of the technology, metal materials are mainly available in the form of high grade printable alloys and can provide high strength and durability of those prints. This can be classified under steel alloys, aluminium alloys, titanium and other high grade industrial metals.
The metal printing is mainly applicable for creating real time metal components those can be directly finished and used as machine parts.
Clay printing consists of dry clay which is mixed with the binder material so as to harden the layer which further grows the print. This technology requires a printer capable of high pressure air compressor which thrusts out the clay mixture including the binder material so as to form the layer.
This technology is applicable where the clay replicas are mainly required for basic and as end use requirements. Sculpting field suits best as its application. Architecture models like city escapes and ground models which is a large field under GIS study is also a better application for this technology.
Today’s Construction technology lags behind the available Computer Design Technology. The new 3D CAD software allows architects to conceive and design constructions easily, but existing building methods do not allow the full potential of the new design software to be achieved.
Despite the availability of construction machinery such as cranes, pumps, concrete mixers, moulds and form works, the building industry is currently reliant on the manual interventions of professional builders who are the hands which operate the machinery.
Existing materials such as reinforced concrete and masonry is expensive and inflexible. To build a complex concave-convex surface, for example, would require the pre-fabrication of expensive formworks and cages, the mounting of complicate scaffolding and then the manual casting. Furthermore, existing techniques require skilled personnel to continually refer to plans/blue-prints. This is very expensive.
The Industry needs to resolve this problem and we believe that RxP 2200 Concrete is the innovative solution. RxP 2200 Concrete enable architects to directly make the buildings they design, using a robotic building machine that uses CAD-CAE-CAM Design Technology.
This technology allows a level of precision and freedom of design unheard of in the past. The human limitations of master builders and brick layers will no longer hamper architects’ visions. RxP 2200 Concrete competes with the traditional construction industry which uses cement, reinforced concrete, bricks and stones.
RxP 2200 Concrete has been designed to make the Construction Industry more environmentally friendly as well as providing low-cost access to building for people in need around the world. The system uses environmentally friendly materials and very low levels of energy.
The RxP 2200 Concrete building process is similar to the “printing” process because the system operates by straining a binder on a sand layer (more on materials in the next section). This is similar to what an ink-jet printer does on a sheet of paper. This principle allows the architect to design fantastically complex architectural structures.
