Rescoll and 3NTR develop 'low-cost' FDM 3D printer for high-performance thermoplastics

French technology services company SRC Rescoll has partnered with Italian industrial 3D printer manufacturer SME 3NTR to develop an affordable industrial 3D printer that can use high-performance plastics, such as PEEK and ULTEM. The project, named SPECTRAL (which stands for low cost principle of high-performance thermoplastic for structural applications), is a part of the European Commission-funded CleanSky program. The idea for the project, which will be ongoing for the next two years, came from the reality that many affordable 3D printers on the market are geared towards photo-polymerized or sintered materials, which rule out certain high-performance polymers like PEEK […]
