Each design is approached by our team on an individual basis, to determine which is the best orientation for the part to be built in. This ensures the part will function fully and the aesthetics will be as intended.
A CAD file is converted into an .STL file; a format created specifically for 3D printing.
FDM 3D printers build the parts layer-by-layer from the base up by heating and extruding the thermoplastic filament, through the Computer Numerically Controlled tips, along the desired path.
FDM parts are known for their strong, stable production materials. Ogle’s variety of materials each have different characteristics to choose from. Benefits of FDM include:
The Fortus 400mc FDM machine has a build envelope of 406 x 355 x 406mm. Amongst the material options for FDM is ULTEM 9085 – a high performance thermoplastic with a high strength to weight ratio. A specialist material of FDM, ULTEM is most widely used in the aerospace sector, where its temperature resistance and FST certification are impetrative.
When it comes to demanding industrial FDM applications, Ogle have the skills and expertise to ensure your project is completely on time and on budget.
