B3DPS will be at Booth D21, Hall 12.1 at the Frankfurt Trade Fair from Nov. 19-22.
With the introduction of its new Forward AM corporate brand, B3DPS continues to pursue its goal of driving industrial scalability as the next phase of additive-based manufacturing.
“Forward” stands for future-oriented, leading-edge materials and technology, while “AM” stands for “additive manufacturing.”
Under the Forward AM brand, the company offers end-to-end materials and service solutions along the entire value chain – from an initial product idea right through to its serial manufacture. Forward AM's materials portfolio encompasses powder bed fusion, advanced plastic and metal filaments, and the latest photopolymers.
The range comprises the entire virtual engineering service spectrum, from a component’s initial design concept (“Design for AM”), through simulation (“Ultrasim”) including printing and finishing, all the way to scanning and testing.
Furthermore, from Q1 2020 the B3DPS portfolio will be complemented by an advanced flexible coating: This is especially well suited to flexible materials such as elastic Ultrasint TPU 01, developed in collaboration with HP for its Jet Fusion 3D-printer. The new coating can be used in special applications and will be available from Forward AM in black, white, metallic silver, and transparent.
Forward AM is also set to expand its thermoplastic Ultrafuse filament portfolio significantly, starting with the test-marketing of Ultrafuse TPU 95A, Ultrafuse ABS ESD and Ultrafuse PEI 9085. The company will be making sample volumes available as of January 2020, with larger volumes provided from the end of Q1 2020. Moreover, Forward AM specialists will present live at the B3DPS booth the new ceramic filament to Formnext visitors.
