Game Changer in FFF 3D Printing: Apiums P series 3D Printers

The adoption of FFF 3D printing technologies in industrial applications is at an onset with the introduction of high performance polymers in this manufacturing space

Karlsruhe, (PresseBox) - With the launch of the first ever available PEEK filament in March 2015 by Apium Additive Technologies GmbH (former Indmatec), a whole new area of opportunity in FFF 3D printing technology was initiated. Apium’s innovative work on 3D printer development lead to its launch of “HPP 155”, the first ever FFF 3D printer specially designed for printing PEEK in November 2015. This rather disruptive feat has ushered in perspectives never thought possible in mainstream manufacturing.

In November 2016, Apium, as leaders in FFF 3D printing of PEEK, kept its promise by announcing the development of the Apium P series 3D printers; Apium P155 and Apium P220, specially designed for multi material usage which allows users to process a wide range of polymers especially PEEK, PVDF, POM-C and PEI 9085.

One of the best features of Apium P series 3D printers is their limitless capability in processing high performance polymers. Apium`s state-of-the-art print head technology together with Apium Controlling Software with 65 adjustable parameters enables the users to control the stiffness, density, crystallinity and many other material properties in a straight forward way.

The first generation of Apium P series 3D printers; Apium P 155, is equipped with a full metal hot end with heating up to 520°C and print bed with heating up to 160°C. Apium combines the outstanding properties of high performance polymers with German engineering to bring the ability to manufacture complex structures such as honeycomb geometries and closed hollows structures with considerable material and weight savings at reduced production steps by realizing sub-assemblies in a single part.
