Choose Polyamide 12 (PA12) for high volume applications requiring dimensional accuracy at a low cost per part.
A versatile polymer for powder bed technologies
High Volume. High Accuracy. Low Costs.
SAF™ PA12 parts are stiffer than PA11 and perfect for those applications where rigidity is an important application requirement. At volume, SAF™ PA12 allows for fine feature resolution, strength and accuracy build after build, and is most suitable for higher tolerance requirements such as for assemblies and connector applications.
SAF™ PA12 on the H350 platform has three strong advantages:
(1) Tight thermal control improves consistency and allows higher nesting densities and thus more parts per build.
(2) Requires just one fluid, High Absorption Fluid (HAF), to produce lower cost predictable parts.
(3) Leftover PA12 can be re-used in future builds as it’s engineered to withstand the process with minimal ageing.
SAF™ PA12 on the H350 platform delivers parts, as required – on time, every time.
Advantages of SAF™ PA12
Precise accurate parts
Ideal for larger parts and covers that must fit correctly in place, such as filter caps.
Complex geometries, as seen in housings, handles and brackets, that need to be rigid to operate properly.
High nesting densities
With SAF™ PA12, end-use parts can be nested together more efficiently, leading to a lower cost per part. On average, a standard 12% nesting density is achieved. Only SAF™ technology provides the tight thermal control that allows for an even higher nesting density.
