Aimplas, the Plastics Technology Centre, Valencia, Spain, has set in a new extrusion line to obtain filaments from a wide range of thermoplastic materials that can be used later to print parts by means of Fused Deposition Modelling (FDM) 3-D printing technology.

This filament extrusion line is equipped with a single-screw extruder, controlled cooling bath, haul-off unit and winding system that allow to obtain filaments with thicknesses of 1.75 mm and 2.85 mm, although its changeability makes it possible to be modified for other thicknesses. Thanks to this new equipment, the Plastics Technology Centre is able to process conventional, technical and biodegradable plastics, elastomers and modified materials (ABS, PE, PP, TPU, PLA, among other).

The filaments extrusion line is complemented by a complete equipment of 3-D printers to produce prototypes. Aimplas is able to obtain designs by using flexible or rigid filaments of materials with a melt temperature up to 350ºC. The different parameters that take part in the 3-D printing process affect part’s aspect and final properties significantly. Aimplas is going to expand its printing equipment in the coming months to meet the needs, challenges and demand of the market.
