CREAT3D Welcomes Formlabs Fuse 1
Tuesday, 12 October 2021
We’ve expanded our Berkshire Showroom again! This time to introduce the Formlabs Fuse 1 SLS 3D printer and we are excited to share it with you.
The Fuse 1 is an affordable, compact Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) 3D printer, ideal for industrial-quality prototyping and production. With the ability to produce final parts that combine strength, flexibility, and detail, Fuse 1 prints are ready for rigorous functional testing, or to ship ready-to-use products to customers.
Alongside the Fuse 1 is the optional accompaniment of the Fuse Sift, a safe and efficient powder recovery system. The Fuse Sift enables the production of functional parts at a 30% powder refresh rate, with unlimited cycles. This means that the user can can print with up to 70% recycled powder.
Both Nylon 11 and Nylon 12 are ideal for 3D printing ductile, robust parts, and are certified biocompatible. Nylon 11 is best suited for printing parts that need to bend or take impact, whilst Nylon 12 is more suitable for creating complex assemblies and durable parts with minimal water absorption.
