Posted on: March 22nd, 2017 by The Technology House

2017 Advanced Design and Manufacturing Cleveland

What is Advanced Design and Manufacturing (ADM) Cleveland?

ADM Cleveland will deliver the full spectrum of advanced design and manufacturing technology. Engineers and executives will get access to the latest solutions in the product development process with cutting-edge technologies, networking events, and educational opportunities.

Who Should Attend?

Engineers and executives who use or are interested in 3D printing and additive manufacturing in key industries such as automotive, medtech, aerospace, robotics, automation, plastics, packaging, and design technology. The conference will have interactive events and exhibits for people of all skill levels.

Will I See TTH There?

Of course!  We will be exhibiting at the conference at booth #523.  Be sure to stop by to see firsthand the innovation and benefits of 3D printing and additive manufacturing.  Also, we will have plenty of free giveaways.

Sign Me Up!

Individual registration is $75, which includes all speakers, presentations, exhibits, and meals.

Carbon 3D CLIP Material Spotlight: RPU Rigid Polyurethane

Posted on: April 27th, 2016 by The Technology House

     Carbon CLIP 3D Printing

 

Carbon 3D Spotlight Material of the Week

RPU Rigid Polyurethane

Tough and abrasion resistant, stiff

 

Rigid Polyurethane Pedals

RPU is our stiffest and most versatile polyurethane-based resin out of the Carbon 3D family. It performs well under stress, combining strength, stiffness, and toughness. These properties make RPU particularly useful for consumer electronics, automotive, and industrial components, where excellent mechanical properties are needed.

Our Thoughts

1. Material

Every manufacturing process has its bread and butter material; 3D Printing has ABS, CNC Machining has Aluminum, Injection Molding has Polypropylene. Carbon 3D is no different. The RPU Rigid Polyurethane is our workhorse material. It builds fast, accurate and finishes great. Our team loves its. If our techs had it their way they’d build every part out of it.

2.Surface Finish

The RPU Rigid Polyurethane has the best surface resolution out of the all of the Carbon 3D materials. Period. The parts off the machine require little to none post finishing. When parts need to be finished, the material is extremely acceptable to sand blasting and paint.

3.Production Ready

Out of all the materials the RPU Rigid Polyurethane is the farthest along to start production today. The material has the versatility and mechanical properties to make it a great fit for housings, brackets, ducts, connectors, etc. We have already seen several cases where CLIP technology has already been a cost and time effective alternative to CNC Machined or Injection Molded parts.
