Wematter has introduced it’s working with graphene options supplier Graphmatech to boost polymer powders with graphene.
The collaboration was first revealed final 12 months when Wematter CEO Robert Kniola spoke to TCT concerning the firm’s SLS providing. By utilizing graphene to boost polymer powders, the businesses hope to offer 3D printing supplies which can be electrically conductive.
Wematter and Graphmatech will develop an electrically conductive PA11 powder that’s blended with graphene and tailor-made to the previous’s Gravity Selective Laser Sintering system. This materials, the businesses imagine, will likely be appropriate for producers in telecommunications, aerospace and automotive, permitting them to print components with improved or maintained mechanical properties. Such enhancements embrace electrostatic dissipative efficiency, shielding and decrease resistivity.
“With this new strategic partnership, Wematter and Graphmatech will be capable of provide clients within the telecommunications, aerospace and automotive industries a aggressive benefit,” commented Kniola. “We see a terrific potential in working with Graphmatech as a result of they’ve a confirmed functionality of creating cutting-edge graphene-based supplies for SLS 3D printing.”
“The graphene enhanced powder will meet the wants of a few of the most demanding clients within the telecommunications, aerospace and automotive industries,” added Dr Mamoun Taher, CEO & founding father of Graphmatech. “The Gravity system by Wematter is an interesting SLS system for printing our high-performing graphene-enhanced powders. The modern powder dealing with system developed by Wematter makes the Gravity system very consumer pleasant which is vital when introducing new powder merchandise to the market.”
