Using the German RepRap x500 3D printer speeds up development processes for functional structural components at Sika Automotive. A wide variety of customizable solutions also offer the company new possibilities in terms of materials and designs.
The magic of the X500 is not in these features though, it is the custom design for high temperature applications that makes all the difference in the world:
- Hotend with a Max Temp of 450C
- Build chamber with active heating, up to 105C
- Water cooling for the hotend & stepper motors
At 3DChimera, we travel the world searching for the best 3D printing solutions for our professional 3D printing customers. One of the highlights of our year is traveling to Frankfurt, Germany for the FormNext tradeshow.
FormNext 2018 did not disappoint! The product we are most excited about after our trip is the Sintratec S2 SLS 3D printer.
