Die blaue UL-Karte für die additive Fertigung

UL Blue Card 233x300 - Die blaue UL-Karte für die additive Fertigung

Die unglaublich schnell wachsende Branche für 3D-Druck oder Additive Manufacturing (AM) fordert Kunststoffhersteller dazu heraus zu prüfen, wie sich diese Technologie auf ihren Markt, ihre Geschäftstätigkeit und ihre Produkte auswirken wird. Im Gegensatz zur herkömmlichen Fertigung wie dem Spritzgießen führt der 3D-Druckprozess zu einer Variabilität, die die Materialeigenschaften aufgrund des Druckvorgangs von Prüflingen erheblich beeinflusst. [...]
