Clarin, Germany, September 24, 2019 – EOS, the global technology leader in metal and polymer materials industry 3D printing, has launched a new flexible polymer material for industrial 3D printing: EOS TPU 1301. TPU (Thermoplastic Polyurethane) material has excellent resilience, good hydrolysis resistance and high UV stability, and is widely used in application fields that require elasticity and easy processing properties. The introduction of this material is a 3D printing towards batch A big step in production. In order to achieve the required elasticity and corresponding damping levels for different applications, these properties can be adjusted through the structural design and the construction process parameters used.
Tim Rüttermann, Senior Vice President of EOS Polymer Systems and Materials Business, said: “EOS TPU 1301 material has excellent deformation resilience, shock absorption and process stability, and can provide a smooth surface for 3D printed parts. Therefore, the material Particularly suitable for footwear, lifestyle and automotive applications-such as cushioning elements, protective gears and shoe soles.”
EOS development partner-BASF 3D Printing Solutions (B3DPS) Managing Director François Minec added: “We are committed to supporting the industrialization of additive manufacturing and making it a mainstream production technology. As the world’s largest supplier of TPU materials One of the suppliers, we can provide powder performance that best matches the process requirements, a strong supply chain, and batch consistency that meets or exceeds industry-specific quality standards-these are all important factors for successful mass additive manufacturing applications. And our close cooperation with EOS plays a key role in this.”
