Italy-based engineering and additive manufacturing firm has revealed the introduction of Windform P2. This is a glass fiber-reinforced thermoplastic polyamide enhanced for the HSS (High Speed Sintering) procedure.
This material is the second offering from CRP. It is offering this via its P-Line series of manufacture grade additive manufacturing materials. According to the company, the latest material has exceptional attributes. It is also suitable for working prototypes and end-use parts.
Windform P2 has been created to be a stronger material as compared to the Windform P1. The Windform P1 was unveiled last April. This was as CRP declared the P-Line file. The P2 possesses a 2925.20 MPa tensile modulus against the P1’s 1960.60 MPa. It futures has a tensile force of 39.24 MPa. This owes to the reinforcement of its glass fibre. Also, the W2 is as well an insulating element with a CTI grading of 600.
The company thinks he material may be effectively used to make small working prototypes and also end-use pieces. This needs detailed analysis and high strength applications like electrical enclosures and covering, and firm automotive interiors. Other suitable applications include tooling, fixtures, presentation models, and consumer goods.
The P-Line element array has been taken to business to promote the use of 3D printing for manufacture means. They are backing a multitude of sectors as they move to create their technology deployment. While the firm grows its P-Line of elements, it states to anticipate steady development.’
CRP’s Vice President and Chief Technology Officer commented this: “We are pursuing non-stop innovation on the road to high tech for production manufacturing.”
“This is a very important property. Windform P2 is stiffer than Windform P1 because Windform P2 is reinforced. Most of the reinforced materials for similar technologies currently on the market, show a decrease in the tensile strength property. My staff and I have been able to preserve the high tensile strength in Windform P2.
Therefore, Windform P2 overall’s performance is superior than the performance of similar materials currently on the market for similar technologies,” he added.
