Currently, more and more companies are considering taking advantage of the benefits offered by pellet 3D printing. As some of the greatest challenges facing companies are the material limitations associated with filament production, the interest in using pellets instead has been increasing over the past few years. This is because pellets (raw material for filament production) are preferred in the industry and R&D sectors due to their lower cost as well as the wide range of certified materials available in pellet form but not filament. And due to this rising interest, we are also seeing more companies offering pellet solutions. For example, Tumaker has developed a dual solution that allows fully customized 3D printing solutions using both pellets and filaments in one machine.
To learn more about pellet 3D printing, how it works and differs from filament printing as well as its applications, 3Dnatives was joined by Tumaker for the webinar “Breaking Boundaries With Pellet 3D Printing” taking place on January 25th at 4PM CEST (10AM EDT). There, Tumaker specialists spoke extensively about the benefits of using pellet 3D printing. In addition, Dr. Frank Clemens from EMPA (Swiss Federal Laboratories for Material Science and Technology) introduced his work and how he uses pellet 3D printing for his research projects for example with soft robotics. Attendees were able to learn all about this unique AM process as well as how pellet 3D printing can revolutionize manufacturing processes. Watch the replay below!
