SIMONA® 3D-Printing Filaments
Maximum precision and consistent material quality
Market of the future: 3D printing
The 3D printing market has generated sales worth several billion US dollars over the last few years. Analysts have projected that this market will continue to grow substantially in the near future. Around half of this revenue is attributable to services as well as consumables, such as plastic filaments.
3D printing process
In 3D printing with polymer filaments, the molten filament is deposited in layers through a movable nozzle to form a three-dimensional structure. The individual layers fuse into one another and the material solidifies as it cools, allowing complex geometries to be realised as 3D models.
Consistent material quality
Due to the ease with which they can be processed, filaments made of the bio-based plastic PLA (polylactide) and the transparent material PETG (polyethylene terephthalate) are particularly suitable for 3D printing. Thanks to the informed choice of raw material, systematic adjustment of the formula and com- prehensive testing, SIMONA has developed a PLA filament offering an outstanding and above all consistent material quality.
